In the third and final year of our AEF Technology Initiative fundraising campaign to jumpstart technology in Arlington Schools, we raised a whopping $106,000! Thank you to all of our donors that supported this effort to:
Establish a High School Digital Arts Studio
Fund Mobile Science Workstations at the High School
Purchase additional equipment for the Ottoson Technology & Engineering program
This three-year effort raised $190,000. Learn more about what we funded in 2015, as well as our successes in 2013 & 2014.
We would like to thank our community partner Quad Cycles for their continued support. Their second annual bike swap in June raised over $1,600 for AEF. We’d like to thank the people of Arlington and the greater Boston area for contributing to their event.
Congratulations to our STARS Teachers of the Year! The Arlington High School and Ottoson Middle School teachers that received the most STARS (School Teachers are Really Special) certificates this year were:
Nicole Eidson, AHS English

We are pleased to announce that Art.Food.Community. has been awarded the 2015 Dawn Moses Memorial Innovations Grant.
This special recognition is given to the Innovations in Education grant that most embodies creativity, rigor and commitment to the students and teachers of Arlington. By recognizing annually an outstanding Innovations grant we honor Dawn Moses, a former AEF Board member who passed away in 2012.
This slideshow demonstrates student artwork that was created by Arlington High School students in a pilot digital arts studio (one workstation). The AEF Technology Initiative (that ends June 30th) is raising money to fund a fully outfitted Digital Arts Studio at the High School. Learn more.
The STARS (School Teachers are Really Special) program is a way to tell your teacher “Thank you for all you do!” They make great end of year teacher gifts! Deadline is June 6 to ensure delivery by the end of school.
The Ottoson and AHS teachers who receive the most STARS will win the STAR of the Year awards.
We recently awarded the Arlington Public Schools $39,866 in three grant categories: Development & Expansion, Continuing Scholars, and Innovations in Education. These grants would not be possible without YOU our donors – thank you! More…
