Friends of AEA Weekly Newsletter
August 31 - September 4th, 2015 Newsletter Requests

Welcome Back from Summer Vacation

We hope everybody had a wonderful summer vacation and we welcome you back to the 2015-2016 school year. This is the first of our weekly newsletters for the year. We try hard to ensure that we don't overload your e-mail box with too much mail. Within these e-mails, we try to put the most important information in the section you are reading right now. Upcoming events are to the right on the page and normally include the current week plus the next few weeks. Events and announcements that might hang around a bit longer in the newsletter are put below the "Featured Events and Announcements" section, so you don't need to read that every time. Finally, at the bottom of the newsletter you'll find links to resources.

As the mission of FoAEA is to support essential programs like music, art, PE, science, field trips, assemblies, and more, at the top of the newsletter you'll find links that help us fundraise for these programs. We utilize this newsletter to first inform the AEA parents of upcoming events and second to ask for your financial support. We recognize that asking for money can be uncomfortable, but it does go to a very good cause: our kids.

On behalf of the entire FoAEA board and the students at AEA whom we support, we want you to know that we greatly appreciate your support financially and your time when you volunteer. More information about FoAEA, our mission, and the details of what we do can be found on our website foaea.org and also in our Welcome Newsletter.
