Ms. Rivera's Weekly Communication

May 17, 2024

Dear AITE Family,

I am pleased to share with you that we successfully concluded Advanced Placement (AP) testing today.  239 students took 482 AP exams over the past 2 weeks; that is 38% of our student body!  These students demonstrated exceptional effort and perseverance throughout the exam period and we are very proud of their accomplishments.

Tonight, we have another exciting milestone to celebrate – Senior Prom.  We look forward to seeing all of seniors and their guests arrive to the venue in their finest attire.  We have encouraged them to prioritize safety and make responsible choices, so they can ensure that prom night is not only a memorable evening but is also free from harm.

Kind regards,

Ms. Rivera

$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.
