King Abdullah II Birthday

January 30th marked King Abdullah II 49th birthday! Here at the school, we took some time on Thursday to celebrate. The kindergarten students decorated flags, which they waved proudly while dancing to a famous Jordanian song. Individuals from our 5th and 6th grade classes read poems and essays they had written about both King Abdullah II and remembering his late father, King Hussein. All the students enjoyed this reason to celebrate their beloved King. 

Tree Day

Today, January 15th, we took the time here at AES to celebrate tree day. In partnership with Jordan's Ministry of Agriculture, we decided to have the kids plant trees around our community.

School Bazaar

About a two weeks ago our school held a bazaar to raise money for families in need in our community. We sold everything from Christmas decorations to homemade cookies, from kids toys to household items. We were very happy with the turnout and over the two days our school raised over 300 JD. It was a successful event, and the kids were excited when Santa made an appearance! 

Growing

This year is a milestone for AES: the graduating 6th grade is the first class to have moved through each grade as students here. This is exciting, but only causes us to look to the future. Our vision is to be able to educate students up to the 10th grade, the grade required of all students here in Jordan. This desire to continue to grow means we need to expand our space.
