Letter from the Principal

Dear AEC Community,

There is so much we would like to share with you, but it can be distilled into two words – Thank You. Thank you for trusting us with your children. Thank you for partnering with us each step of the way. Thank you for advocating on behalf of AEC and standing up for excellence always. Thank you for sharing your stories, hearts, and ideas.

It has been an honor to learn and grow with you and your children. While the past year has dealt us unexpected challenges and opportunities, we stand by you, firm in our commitment to continue to do our best for your incredible children. We are so excited to welcome our new families, and to welcome back our returning families. We are grateful that you are with us this school year – it is going to be a great one!

We look forward to seeing you on the first day of school!

With gratitude and love,

Mrs. Kuzma
