Ms. Rivera's Weekly Communication 9/23/2022

Dear AITE Family,

We had a great turnout last night at Open School Night.  It was nice to be able to welcome so many new and returning families in-person this year. 

This week kicked-off the start of the Fall season. The weather is already getting a little bit cooler. Rosh Hashanah also begins at sundown on Sunday and is observed on Monday and Tuesday.  Happy New Year to our families who are celebrating!

Kind regards,

Ms. Rivera

COVID Dashboard

Hispanic Heritage Month

I wanted to take a moment to recognize and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.  Students are learning about the contributions and achievements of many famous individuals of Hispanic descent in many of their classes and over the morning announcements during this month.

 

School is Closed

School is closed on Monday, September 26 and Tuesday, September 27 in observance of Rosh Hashanah. School will reopen on Wednesday, September 28, which will be a B-Day and an early dismissal day.  Students will be dismissed at 11:45 am.  Teachers are scheduled for Professional Development activities in the afternoon.

 

School Picture Day 

Legacy Studios was here today to photograph all staff and underclassmen for the Yearbook and an ID Badge, which they will be required to wear on a school issued lanyard while in school, once we receive them.  If you would like to order pictures, please ask you child for the QR Camera Card they received today; it details how and when to access their gallery of images.  Picture Retake Day is scheduled for Thursday, November 3rd for those students that were absent today or are purchasing pictures and want to retake them.

$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.

AITE student, Arnav Gover, won first-place in the Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) World Series of Innovation, Saint-Gobain Sustainable Cities Challenge.  The World Series of Innovation is an annual innovation challenge series focused on advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Thousands of young entrepreneurs and innovators from around the world entered the competition in the fall, and the top ten entries in each challenge bracket moved on to the final round of judging earlier this month. The winners were announced on March 31.
