May/June Newsletter 2017 – Congratulations Graduates!

Message from the AEF President

bill-yosemiteDear Friend,
The AEF Board and staff congratulate the graduating seniors from our public high schools and charters. We wish you well and good fortune in the future.

We are concluding another successful year at the Alameda Education Foundation. Our school year programs are concluding as we transition to our Summer Camps and preparation for our Back To School Supply Drive (Equipped 4 Success ). We are always looking for donations to guarantee all deserving students begin the school year with the proper school supplies.

The 2016-17 school year was marked with new AEF records. 192 teachers were adopted through our Adopt A Classroom program, as well as the largest participation in our track program ever – 326 – to name just two. The last week of school I will have the honor and privilege to present the Jack Capon awards to outstanding 8th grade student-athletes. As someone recently told me, “AEF does a lot.”

Enjoy your summer and thank you for your continued support of the Alameda Education Foundation.

AEF Spotlight

Adopt a Classroom recipientAdopt A Classroom, Impact a Life

Editor’s Note: This year, AEF adopted a record number of 192 teachers through our Adopt A Classroom program, which provides $500 grants from the community directly to teachers. Many teachers provided feedback as to the impact the donations made on their classrooms. Below is one such story from Island High School history teacher, Robert Scofield. Mr. Scofield also runs a “Safe Spaces” group that meets to support LGBTQ youth and create a safe place for students to learn, thrive and explore some of the issues surrounding the LGBTQ community. Mr. Scofield was adopted by the Alameda Kiwanis Club.

Safe Spaces
by Robert Scofield, Island High School Teacher
When Safe Spaces was adopted, I took it to the group to see what they felt would be a good use for the donation. After lots of discussion, the students decided that they would like to use the money to address something that is a huge issue for the LGBTQ community, which is homelessness.
