Happening at AITE


Ms. Rivera's Weekly Communication

April 12, 2024

Dear AITE Family,

I hope this communication finds you well and in good spirits as we finally welcome the arrival of spring. Spring recess provides a well-deserved break for our students, families, and staff and the opportunity to recharge, spend quality time with loved ones, and perhaps experience some new adventures.  Whether you are planning a getaway or enjoying a “staycation,” I encourage you to make the most of this time to relax and enjoy!

We are in the fourth and final quarter of this school year.  We will be wrapping up the school year with various activities, celebrations, and assessments aimed at commemorating our students’ achievements and ensuring a smooth transition into the summer break.  Please keep an eye out for important dates and events in my weekly communication, so you do not miss any news.

Before we embark on the spring recess and the final stretch of the school year, I want to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for your unwavering support and partnership with us in your child’s education. I hope that we will continue to work together to foster a dynamic and supportive learning environment for our students, both in and out of the classroom.

Kind regards,

Ms. Rivera

Absence Documentation

Written documentation is required from a parent/guardian upon the date of the student’s return from an absence.  It can be sent in one of two ways:

1. by email to from the parent or

2. a written note from the parent sent directly to the office

The documentation must contain the date(s) of and the reason for the student's absence from school. Parents should contact their child's school counselor regarding the collection of homework assignments if their child will be out for several days.

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Assessment

The NGSS assessment is Connecticut’s statewide mastery examination for science given in grades 5, 8, and 11.  They aim to provide an efficient and reliable estimate of a student’s overall performance in science relative to grade-appropriate standards that enables valid interpretations of student achievement and progress.  Families who have students in grade 11 will receive a separate email with more information about testing, which will take place on Wednesday, April 24 at the start of period 1. It will be a normal A-day for all other students in grades 9, 10, and 12.

$50,000 Raised by Students this Past School Year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

AITE students Ava Lesser and Nora Amsellem successfully raised over $50,000 this past school year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). Their initial goal was to raise an ambitious $35,000; however, by the time their fundraising campaign concluded, they well surpassed their goal, raising a total of $53,274 from an estimated 750 different donors.

Because Ava and Nora surpassed the $50,000 mark, they have been rewarded with a research grant and were recognized as one of the top 8 teams in the Fairfield/Westchester area.  They will have the opportunity to direct the funds they raised towards a specific research initiative within LLS and have been asked to share their materials with the National Team to be used in their nationwide efforts to raise money and awareness.

Hands with Heart
