Hello AES families!
Everyone here at AES is excited about our first ever virtual field day this Monday, June 15th. When the AES field day website goes live on Monday morning, there will be a variety of games, challenges and activities for everyone to try out. You’ll see some familiar faces trying out each game, and there will be ways to track your progress, and awards to print out at the end of it all.
We are attaching our preliminary list of materials needed for the games and activities we currently have planned. Everything on this list is useful, but not required to enjoy field day. There may be additions to the list on Monday.
We hope you enjoy the exciting things we have planned, and we’re looking forward to playing along with everyone. It’s been a great year and we miss all of you.
If you want an easy way to keep track of this site, so you can find it again on Monday, you can bookmark it. The link will remain the same.

Being stuck at home doesn’t mean you have to go bonkers with boredom. There are lots of ways to learn while having fun at home, you can: work on a puzzle, read a book, or read a book to your stuffed animal, write a journal, practice origami, play board games or even a card game, or dig up all the activity books, presents, etc. that you haven’t played with yet and use those!

Good Afternoon AES Families,
In an effort to keep our AES community connected during this time of social distancing, I will be posting a video message from a staff member on our blog. We invite students to take photos of themselves doing something fun, reading a book, or working on school work and email them to Mrs. C @ email@example.com.
We miss you all and look forward to getting back to school! Check out the first message, more to come!
