This has been another exciting School year for AEF. We have seen a sizeable increase in participation from the teachers and staff with our “5 For The Future” program, continued support from our local businesses for the Spelling Bee and Science Fair, more applications for enrichment grants and a record number of scholarship recipients than ever before.
You probably noticed that we did not have our annual "RideFest" at Castle Park this year. Instead, we embarked on a new fund raising adventure by having our Inaugural Food Truck & Car Show. Though participation was lower than anticipated, we consider this inaugural event a success and look forward to an even greater success next year.
Our next major fundraising event is The 5th Annual Citrus Classic Bike Ride. This will be held in October at the Riverside Plaza with rides ranging from 7 miles for the family to 100 miles for the serious riders too.
We cannot express enough our sincere gratitude for all the support AEF has received from the AUSD Board and Staff and Community during this school year.
We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer break.
John Brandriff, President
