Letter from the Principal

Dear AEC Community,

I am thrilled to be returning and continuing in my role as the AEC principal. It has been an honor to learn and grow with you and your children. Thank you for trusting us with your children, and thank you for partnering with us each step of the way. I am committed to helping our team strengthen communication with students and families on our Preppies’ academic progress, and to build strong partnerships with our families.

We are so excited to welcome our new families, and to welcome back our returning families. Thank you for your continued trust in our team and ongoing partnership as we work together to support your children. I look forward to continuing our work together to make AEC a truly amazing place to learn and grow.

With gratitude and love,

Mrs. Kuzma
