AES students visit UNWA and DCWA sponsered kindergartens and students from those schools visit our kindergarten to share activities, learn the role of host, provide snacks and exchange token handmade gifts.
Grade 1 Projects:
AES students participate in an annual "read in" to raise funds to support "Room to Read" in India. This NGO creates libraries in local schools in Delhi and also provides support and scholarships for girls to attend school. First graders also make quilt squares that are sewn into baby blankets and given to a local orphanage.
Grade 2 Projects:
Through pledges to support Grade 2 runners in the Terry Fox Run for cancer research, community members donate to cancer research; Grade 2 students sell goods they have made and services they provide at the Second Grade Mela and donate the proceeds to a local orphanage and/or school for disabled students.
Grade 3 Projects:
Grade 3 students host a visit from students of the Tibetan Day School and learn about Tibetan culture. Grade 3 supplies instructional materials, some English language practice and teacher support through a long standing relationship between AES and the Tibetan Day School.
Grade 4 Project:
Grade 4 students conduct the weekly paper recycling drive throughout the Elementary School. Their efforts are aligned to the High School recycling club. The collected paper is sold for charity or reused in local schools.
Grade 5 Project:
Grade 5 students will interact with students from Deepalaya School including such activities as support for English language practice, increase awareness of the needs of students in the local community among AES students. Participate in opportunities for shared sports, drama and other age appropriate events.
