Tickets are available now for $15 by clicking on this link or after school 9/21-9/24 and for $25 at the door. Ticket price Includes Dad and all his daughters

We are also still looking for volunteers to help out before and at the event. Please sign up for volunteering here.

All profits from this dance will go towards the German Intern Program at AEA. We hope that everybody can make it to the dance and that everybody else helps us make this dance as successful as in the past.

Freezer Needed for Pretzels

We are in need of a freestanding (chest or upright) freezer for storing frozen pretzels. If you have something you are interested in donating, e-mail Rebecca.

Annual Donation Drive

The FoAEA annual donation drive is just kicking off for the 2015-16 school year. Our goal for this year is to raise approximately $55,000 during this drive and we've already raised over $2,000. We encourage families to donate $1/day per student they have in the school. You can make a one time donation or a monthly donation of any amount at foaea.org/donate or just click on the link below. The students of AEA appreciate all of your support.

Free Money for Friends

In this world there are very few things that are free money but using the foaea.org/amazon link to go to Amazon.com is exactly that. For every purchase you make after usingt his link FoAEA gets up to 8% of the money back as a referral fee. Yes, 8%. Last year we made $6,700 from this program, which is $6,700 we don't need to fundraise!!!

Please use this link every time you go to Amazon.com. Give it to your parents, your friends, your bothers and sisters, even random people on the street. If you own a small business, please consider buying through this link so that your business can help support AEA.

So far, in September we have already raised $500. Keep up the good work and remember to use our link for all of your Amazon purchases.
