Support Alpine School Programs By Attending the AEF Spring Gala – April 21, 2018

Please join this effort by attending the AEF Spring Gala at the Viejas Oak Ballroom on Saturday, April 21, 2018 where there will be a Buffet Style Dinner, Live & Silent Auctions, and Music & Dancing all to support Educational Programs in the Alpine Union School District.

This year AEF has pledged to raise the needed funding to enable Proud Superintendent Rich Newman’s Wheels of Experts program.  This is a transformational program to provide integrated Pathways of enhanced electives across the district; to offer students and parents choice and options; to reinforce that Alpine Union is The Destination District of the East County!

When fully implemented, Wheels of Experts will provide multiple Pathways from Kindergarten through the Middle School enabling students to prepare for, and participate in, distinctive and enhanced electives.  This goal is to be achieved in part by identifying teachers with unique skills, and to compensate those teachers for the extra effort to visit every campus every week; to introduce their specialty, to help identify and mentor other teachers into those specialties.  Look to the successful Robotics-Coding-Engineering program at Joan MacQueen.  It is producing engineering teams every year that are winning local, regional and national recognition.  That program is now established and is being executed so well by our wonderful Diana Tompkins.

All of you funded that program through your support of AEF.  I have attached a write-up on it for you to read HERE: aef robotics-coding-engineering program history 2018-04-02 alt

Think now of expanding Robotics-Coding-Engineering into a Pathway from kindergarten through grade school through middle school.  And that is beginning to happen.  Our great teachers, Erica Lyle at Shadow Hills and Kathryn Golden at Boulder Oaks, will be offering Robotics courses at the AEF summer ReadyBreak Camps.  Erica Lyle is gearing-up for a regular curriculum of Robotics at Shadow Hills.

Along with Robotics-Coding-Engineering, Wheel of Experts is intended to provide Pathways for Math, Art, advanced Physical Education/Sports, and too even for Music, Nutrition, and Culinary Arts in  time.  We can achieve it all, if we can fund it all!  Again the overall program objective is to provide students and parents with choice and options for an enhanced education leading into the mid-21st Century.

Please link to AEF’s website for more information on the Spring Gala: https://aef4kids.org/ .  Click on the box “EVENT INFO”, read about the Gala and please buy your tickets.

Teachers from either district are encouraged to contact us to subscribe individual classrooms, or blocks of classes, to participate in this grant-funded program for East County K-8 students.

With generous funding from individual donors and our program sponsors at San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), the Captain Planet Foundation, and KEEN Footwear, this program is fully funded for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year and is offered at no-cost to teachers or school districts. All program instruction and school bus transportation is covered by these grants, and includes docent-guided field trips on BCLT-owned ecological preserves, as well as introductory classroom presentations from program instructors.

This year’s program will include 750 elementary and middle school students in East County, a record high number of participants in this program over the last five years. Students will gain knowledge and understanding of nature through an established environmental education curriculum based on Next Generation Science Standards, and will participate in hands-on service learning projects such as planting native plants.

BCLT and AEF are currently seeking teachers interested in participating in the Living Classroom program to schedule site visits and field trip dates for this school year. Any K-8 teachers in Alpine Union School District or Mountain Empire Unified School District are eligible to enroll in this program, and there is no cost to participate.
