Dad’s Club Fix-It Day! – 2/7/15

Every year the Panther Dads gather together for the school’s Fix-It Day.  We identify areas around the school that are in need of repairs or improvements and assign Dads to work together to get the work completed.  Some of the Dads will also be assigned to place the tiles from Tile Night in the AHES Quad.

If you are interested in participating and would like to get signed up, or just have any questions, please contact Dad’s Club President Todd Bustillo at todd.bustillo@gmail.com


Even if you can’t participate in the event, we are also looking for materials donations (lumber, paint, hardware, tile grout, etc).  So if you can help contribute in that way, it’s highly appreciated!  One of the bigger projects the Dads Club is supporting this year is the school’s Garden Project, which will involve the construction of raised planting beds in the school garden adjacent to the baseball field.  If you like woodwork, please consider participating in this project.  

Dad’s Club Meeting – 2/3/15

The next Dad’s Club meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 3rd at Slater’s 50/50.

The meeting will start at 7pm and the main topics for discussion will be the Golf Tournament, Fix-it Day, and Spring Fling.  If you aren’t already a Dad’s Club member and would like to sign-up, please contact Todd Bustillo at todd.bustillo@gmail.com  

All Panther Dads are welcome to join.  It’s a great way to support the school’s PTA-sponsored projects and programs, benefit the kids, and network with other Panther Dads.

What Else Does PTA Do? We’ll Tell You!

As the newly elected PTA president, I would like to welcome back returning students and families! I also extend a very heartfelt welcome to our new AHES families! To all of you, I look forward to making 2013-2014 a fun and productive year.

To the PTA Executive board, committee chair leaders and all of our volunteers, I look forward to working with all of you this school year, some for the first time. I know we will have a great year because of the dedicated and amazing volunteers we have on the PTA.

The purpose of the PTA is to first and foremost support our students. In addition, it supports the faculty, staff, parents, and the local community. “Every Child-One Voice” is the National PTA motto and the PTA is one of the strongest voices in the educational process that directly supports our children and school. This year will be no different. Your PTA has been focused on preparing an enhanced educational environment for all of our students.

Art Masters’ teacher-artists conduct hands-on studio art activities enabling students to create their own individual works of art in the manner of the master artist or art subject, using the same styles, techniques, media and disciplines.
Each year we need to come up with this money to renew our lease for the equipment in the computer lab. Every 5 years we get new computers and that is happening this year! The old computers from the lab will go into the classrooms.
This year we have generated enough funds to justify a P.E. coach 3 days a week! Matt Casado will be joining us Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays for the 2012-2013 school year, and we are so excited to have him! He will coach grades 1st-5th. (The teachers facilitate PE for Kinder & 6th grade).
This money goes towards the renewal of licenses such as Reading Counts.
