Arcadia Educational Foundation

AEF: dedicated to making our kids prepared and competitive for college!
 
The sole purpose of the Arcadia Educational Foundation (AEF) is to raise funds to ensure that students of the Arcadia Unified School District (AUSD) are prepared and competitive for colleges and careers. AEF fundraising allowed AUSD to hire two new counselors to support students during transitional periods in their education. AEF is committed to the transitional counselors and strives to hire one or more dedicated college counselors, but in order to do so, money must be raised every year. Successful educational foundations such as San Marino and La Canada have ~60% participation rates. In contrast, only 4% of AUSD families contribute. If every student in the district could just donate $20 more than they did last year, AEF would have sufficient funds for both the transitional and college counselors. 
Consider supporting AEF in better equipping our students for the future. Donations may be made by check payable to "AEF" or online by credit card. Visit  www.ArcadiaEdFoundation.org to read the full article on AEF's commitment to counselors, also available in Chinese.

Attention all 6th graders! The annual spelling bee competition is fast approaching. Next week the qualifying round will begin in your advisory class. The official Dana spelling bee is scheduled to take place on February 9th and 10th and, if necessary, the 12th. The top 8 finishers, including the Dana champion, will move on to compete against the top spellers from First Avenue and Foothills on Thursday, February 19th to determine an Arcadia district champion who will then represent Arcadia in the regional spelling bee. How far can you go? See Mr. Dima for details or if you have questions. BEE there or B-E-E square.
