MS Wish List

Our 6th grade math teacher, Ms. Jimenez, has asked for our help with her Math Meets Art unit (p.s. What a great lesson!). She needs 1500 sheets of 6x6 origami paper (any color or pattern) to enrich her lesson. Find some examples of origami paper on Amazon. First, user our link and then click here and here.

To donate items, please sign on to our MS Teacher Wish List This way everyone can determine how much paper is still needed. If you prefer not to sign up online, no worries, simply bring your donations to Ms. Jimenez.

Ms. Jimenez would like to start this unit asap. Please drop all donations at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your generosity and unfaltering support of our teachers and students!

Featured Events and Announcements

Support essential enrichment programs at AEA

Please help support essential programs at AEA through a donation to Friends of Albert Einstein Academies. Our goal is to have 200 families participate in this donation drive. Donating to FoAEA supports the enrichment programs that our kids benefit from including art, music, PE and science programs and provides funds for field trips, assemblies, and classroom supplies.

If you haven't signed up yet, please take 5 minutes to contribute to AEA's enrichment programs. Go to our donation website from your mobile device or computer and select a monthly donation amount or a one time donation. Choose $30/month ($1/day) or any amount affordable to you. Even $5 or $10 per month makes a huge difference for the kids.

Matching Grants

Last year, the following companies made matching grants to FoAEA: Union Bank, Qualcomm, Pfizer, Intuit, Genentech, Covidien, Nokia, and ARS National Svcs.

We thank all of these companies for their generous support. If you work for any of these companies and have not yet taken advantage of their matching grant program, it just takes a few minutes and is free money to the school. One way of finding out if your employeer supports matching grants is to look at this list of companies. Information normally needed to have an employeer make a matching grant is available here.
