Teacher Appreciation Lunch

 

Let's show our appreciation to the teachers and staff with some "Crock Pot Love" (aka a soup and salad lunch) on November 15, 2018!
 
This has been a long time favorite because of all of the great cooks we have in our community, and we want to keep that up. Sign up to bring in a crock pot full of soup (to serve approx. 10 people) or a salad or a dessert (each to feed approx 10-12 people).

AES/PTO Food Drive 2018
November 12th-16th
 

Fall is finally upon us and that means it is time for AES' annual canned food drive benefiting North Fulton Community Charities.

 

This year's food drive is scheduled for the week prior to the Thanksgiving break: Monday, November 12th - Friday, November16th. A flyer identifying NFCC's most needed items will be sent home with students.

 

Our goal is to collect at least 2300 canned food and non-perishable items during the drive. A few parent volunteers are also needed each morning of the drive to help count, sort, and tally items collected.

 

If you are available and willing to help, please sign-up here.

 

For questions regarding the food drive, please contact Jennifer Jones at jjones2521@gmail.com or Erika Bailey at erikabailey24@gmail.com.

Join the PTO!

By joining the PTO as a family member, staff or community partner and making a donation, you help us meet our school's needs that are outside the scope of the budget.

The AES PTO is proud to have been able to:

Resurface Basket Ball Courts   -   Purchase Classroom Computers   -   Provide Extra Grants & Supplies to Teachers    -  Purchase Classroom Libraries   -   Provide Lunch & Treats for Staff   

 

 We also make a difference by purchasing food for students who would otherwise not have enough to eat during the holiday breaks, buying school supplies, and paying for field trips. Our students love the book fair, so we make sure to purchase books for those students who normally would not be able to.

These are just a few examples of the many things PTO is able to do with your help!

 Contributing to the PTO truly makes a difference and puts a smile on children's faces!

When you go a step further and volunteer to help with events—or join our board— you set a fine example for our students to follow, and greatly encourage our teachers and staff.

 

If you have questions about becoming a member of the PTO, please contact Alison Crain at alisonfraleigh@yahoo.com.
