School and PTO Leaders Attend the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show

Last month, I had the privilege of attending the NAMM conference in Anaheim with Dr. Sciarretta, Principal Trakas, and Dana Zimbric (AEA parent). We had the chance to meet with musical instrument manufacturers and publishers of educational materials for school music programs. It was a pleasure to spend the day with the school leadership discussing ways we can provide more opportunities in music education at Albert Einstein Academies. My goal is to have an approved Parent Teacher Organization budget in March that includes significant funding for school music at AEA during the 2018-19 school year. If you would like to find out more about this, I encourage you to attend one of our scheduled meetings or contact me at president@foaea.org

Thank you to all who came out to support our Chipotle Fundraiser! It was a huge success and our preliminary tally shows that you helped raise almost $1000 to help support the IB programs at AEA. Due to their success, we will continue to hold these monthly fundraisers throughout the year. Have or know a business who would like to participate in our fundraising efforts? Please e-mail communications@foaea.org and we'll be sure to forward it to Allison Soares who organizes these awesome monthly fundraisers.


Speaking of monthly fundraisers, our next social fundraiser will be held at Wahoo's in Point Loma on Wednesday, March 14th. Show your flyer or the digital flyer on your phone when purchasing food and 20% of your entire purchase will be donated to AEA. It's that easy!



Albert Einstein Academies is considering adding more music options to the curriculum at the Elementary and Middle School campuses. Please take the time to fill out the music survey below so we can determine how much interest the program has. 6th and 7th grade students will be taking a music survey at school to determine interest in the Program. If you have a student currently in 4th or 5th grade please take the survey with them at home.


Please join us on Thursday, March 1st at the Elementary School Campus from 6-7PM for our next Parent Teacher Association Meeting. The agenda will be posted online prior to the meeting on our meetings page. Please also look for updates on our landing page at foaea.org and Facebook.
