German classes for parents at Grossmont College

Great opportunity to learn to speak German to your child and assist with German homework! For more information please see flyers here and here.

Middle School Used Uniform Sale - POSTPONED

Unfortunately, we have to postpone our used uniform sale scheduled for next week. The 6th and 7th grade art and design night has been postponed until late February, which is when we will hold the sale as well. Please stay tuned for the new sale date(s) in February.

Thank you to everyone who has donated uniforms! Please keep digging through your kids' drawers and closets for any unused items to drop with Maggie and April in at the front desk.

Questions? Please contact Amy. See everyone there!

Middle School Wish List Request - Mice (for Chromebooks)

Our MS 6th grade math department needs 200 new or used mice for student Chromebooks. Perhaps your office’s IT dept has an unused box of mice from which you could take a few to donate … my office did. New mice are also pretty cheap on Amazon.com here, here, and here. Don’t forget to use foaea.org/amazon for AEA!

To donate, please sign-up on our Wish List, so everyone can determine when Ms. Pruitt’s wish has been fulfilled. Please drop donations with Ms. Pruitt or the front office at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

Questions? Please contact Amy. See everyone there!

Kinder Mission

A new German After-School Enrichment Program. Fun & Play, Learning German, Homework done! For further questions please contact Peggy.

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.

Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school earn cash. This school year, our school’s earnings goal is $1,000 which will go towards all the wonderful programs our school offers.

Collection Sheet

Are you a Box Tops member? Sign up at BTFE.com to stay updated on our school’s earnings and find a full list of hundreds of participating products. Members also receive exclusive coupon offers and recipes and can learn about extra ways for our school to earn more cash.
