Students in grades 5 and 6 planned a special day for all of our students from grades K-6 by arranging for everyone to have lunch and recess at the same time on Friday February 14th.  Students were mixed into twenty multi-age groups. They sat together in the cafeteria getting to know one another and worked on small group activities. After lunch, they played together during recess and competed on an obstacle course in the gym with their team.

It’s difficult to comprehend how much has happened in just one week. As you know, AES will be closed for the next two weeks as a preventative measure in an attempt to minimize the spread of COVID-19. I’m extremely proud of our students and staff in the way they have handled all of this uncertainty.
