Event Plans for 2019-2020
The 2019-2020 school year promises to be exciting for the Arlington Education Foundation. We have committed an additional $10,000 to support Arlington's STEAM Lab Initiative (STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics). Funds raised during the 3rd Annual AEF 5K Run/Walk & Kids Runs event this past Spring allowed the Foundation to contribute an additional $10,000 to the STEAM Lab initiative (total to date: $33,400). Labs have been established in each of the K-5 school buildings and the important work of STEAM activities are happening in these very special spaces!
In order to raise additional funds, the Foundation will hold its major fundraiser, the 4th Annual AEF 5K Run/Walk & Kids Runs event on April 25, 2020. Please save this date and join us for an important cause. Without individual donors and our business sponsors, the Foundation could not do any of this!
Additionally, local restaurant owners continue to support Arlington. Our 8th Annual Arlington Restaurant Day was held on November 14, 2019. What a huge success! Over $2,000 was raised. Please join us in thanking the following restaurants: Athena Gyro, Beech Tree Grill, Beekman Pizza Express & Deli, Beekman Square Diner, Carlo's Trattorisa, Daily Planet, Dutchess BBQ, Jason Patrick's on 44, Madison's Pizza Cafe and Pizza Express on 55. 15% of your purchases were given back to support the Arlington Education Foundation's programs.
