December 2018 News and Events
Dear A.E. Wright Families,

We hope you all are well and safe following the tragic events of November. As the year draws to a close, we reflect on how grateful we are to live in such a supportive community, and we hope that we carry this caring spirit into the New Year. See below for opportunities to help our neighbors.

Please join us for our next PTSA Meeting 7 p.m. Monday, December 17 in the Drama Room. On behalf of the PTSA, we wish you a beautiful holiday season and happy and healthy 2019.

Warmly,

Sharon Stepenosky
President, AEW PTSA
 
AE Wright Gives Back -
Family Fun Night 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, December 14
LVFireRelief.org

If you want to help families impacted by the Woolsey Fire, please go to LVFireRelief.org . 100% of all donations received will go directly to the impacted families. LVFR was started by parents in our district who teamed up with the YMCA so all donations are tax-deductible and families will not be taxed on any contributions they receive. The school district also supports LVFR. At this time, the donation center needs luggage and medium or large storage bins with lids. Due to the overwhelming response, they can no longer accept clothing and gift cards. Even if you cannot help financially, you can help by asking your friends and family from out of the area to donate at    LVFireRelief.org . Thank you!
