Final count is in on the non-perishable foods that the staff and students of AES collected during their Winter Carnival 2016.  Are you ready for this? 481 pounds of food was collected for the local food pantry.  Awesome job, AES!

On Friday, March 4th, there will be an early release and students will be dismissed at 11:15.  There will be no 4 year old or after school program on this day.

The 8th grade and PTG are selling money calendars.  The cost is $10.00 and drawings will be held during the month of April.  Your name gets put back in the drawing for another month.

The 8th graders are selling tickets on an AES Panthers jacket, size large for $1.00 each.  

AES sports still has t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies available for purchase at the games or at the office during the school day.

Thanks to all who participated in the Relay for Life fundraiser to duct tape Mr. Flood to the wall.  A total of $155.00 for the team Alexander-4-a-Cure was raised.

During basketball games AES is asking all parents to not block any doorways as these are fire exits.  AES would like to see parents sitting with their children to stop any confusion for the 8th grade students selling 50/50 tickets and other drawings and also the people working at the door.  During the last home game there were a lot of children running around on the basketball court during the game; AES asks that you watch your children so this doesn’t happen in the future.  AES does not want to see any child hurt.  Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.


This week during the Alexander Library Time students continued with their on going projects including Book Projects and Mandela Designs.  The 2nd and 3rd graders had a guest come to the Library, former classmate Carlos Oakes Jr. who brought with him his grandfather Carl Oakes.  Carlos and his grandpa taught the 2nd and 3rd graders how to play Left Center Right, which was at times quite comical.  Sometimes in the excitement telling your left from right was quite confusing.  In a little bit of Pre-Dr. Seuss Birthday was done by the 1st graders when they read “Which Pet Should I Get?” by Dr. Seuss himself and then described and drew the pets of their choosing.  It was a fun-filled and imaginative time.  Pre-k and kindergarten had an abbreviated library but did get in for a bit to check out some new books for reading during their quiet and free time in class.
