December 2014

Dear Parents:

Thank you to all those who helped support our Veterans Day letter collection and the Aluminum Can Drive last month. This month, A.E. Wright's leadership class is sponsoring an opportunity for students to participate in a "giving back" activity by working with the Marine Corps in Port Hueneme to provide toys for needy children in Ventura County and parts of Los Angeles County through Toys for Tots. We will be collecting new, unused toys in the main office from December 1st through December 18. The toys should be unwrapped and be appropriate for children ages newborn to 15. Please note: stuffed animals, toy guns, clothing, or religious items will not be accepted.

Start saving your e-waste! Mrs. Kritz and her computer students are planning an e-waste recycling drive on January 10, 2015 from 9:00am-3:00pm. The money earned from the drive will go towards purchasing needed supplies, upgrading technology, and helping supplement the Charity Checks project in Advance Computers. Since this is the time of year when new electronics tend to replace the old and New Year's resolutions are made to clean out and discard, we are hoping that you will remember the upcoming e-waste drive and save your old broken VCRs, T.V.s, computers, cell phones, and any office e-waste for A.E.Wright!

This month's parent education topic is technology in the classroom. Come to the Parent Tech Training on December 16 to see how Google Classroom works, get tips for accessing your child's grades on AERIES, participate in a tutorial of the online resources available for our new math textbooks, and learn about free online homework help. Parents may bring their own devices to the meeting or may use one of the lab computers.
