Thank You for Making the 2018 AES/PTO Food Drive Successful!

 

A big thank you goes out to all our AES families for making this year’s food drive successful. AES exceeded its goal this year and collected a total of 2,304 canned and nonperishable food items!! We could not have met this goal without the help of each and every one of you - you have helped to make a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors in in Roswell and Alpharetta.

 

 

A big shoutout goes to Ms. Nelson's class (4th grade), Ms. Diaz’s class (5th grade), and Ms. Kane’s class (Pre-K) for being the top three classes in the school to bring in the most items this week. Another big shoutout goes to our Special Friends classes for bringing in a total of 224 items this week!

 

 

The top classes bringing in the most items for their grade are:

 

 

Pre-K

Kendra Scott Gives Back Party     

Join fellow AES families at Kendra Scott at Avalon on Wednesday, December 5th from 6:00-8:00pm. Enjoy sips and sweets while you do some holiday shopping. 20% of the evening's proceeds will go to AES! If you can’t make it out on the 5th, you can call the store during the event and place and order by phone and AES will get credit!

 


Chick-fil-A Family Night - December 11th
 

Chick-fil-A Family Night - December 11th

Our next Chick-fil-A Family Night is just around the corner! Make plans to join us Tuesday, December 11 from 5:30p-7:30p at the Avalon store!

 

 

The following teachers will be there dishing up ice cream toppings and applying tattoos:

 

5:30-6:30 - Mrs. O'Brien and Ms. Crumpton

6:30-7:30 - Mrs. Newman and Mrs. Summers

 

PLUS - the AES Chorus will be there performing holiday songs throughout the evening!

 

 

Don't forget to sign the Sign-In book when you arrive, or if you go through the drive-thru, ask your server to sign you in. *Please note if you have a commitment and you must get there within 30 minutes before or after the designated times, so they will include your order in our total earnings if you mention it.

 

 

Also - a note about parking - the office building next to the store and the Container Store on the other side have both offered their lots for overflow. EVEN if there is a sign saying No Parking at the office building, you can ignore it. The office is closed in the evening and you WILL NOT be towed.

 

And remember - the class with the most participation wins free Chick-fil-A! See you then!

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.
