Yearly standardized testing has begun in grades 3-8. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest.  It has been proven that well-rested students do better when testing.

There is a lot of snow on the AES hill, and as you know, the staff at AES believe that children should go outside for a short time at least once a day.  They need the fresh air and different play activities. Students will not be sent outside in wet weather or if the temperature and wind chill are too cold. On most days, however, students can and should go out.  Please insist that your child wear proper clothing to be outside in winter: coats, hats, mittens or gloves along with boots and snow pants if they wish to play in the snow.

Please mark your calendars for a few upcoming AES basketball games. March 26th Alexander will play at Edmunds and March 27th Alexander will play at Eastport. 

During the week of March 26th-30th the students at AES will be participating in Children’s Stage Adventures.  On Friday, March 30th the students will be putting on a production of “Cry Wolf”. Dress rehearsal time is 1 p.m. and open to the public at 6 p.m.
