Our First Annual Fundraising Event
125 of our supporters attended our meaningful celebration of our First Annual Fundraising event and our first year's accomplishment. We had 20 students of all ages volunteering with every aspect of the event, from hosting, to speaking, to sharing memories. Teachers who attended said they could feel the love everywhere. Authors Tim McLoughlin and Dr. Fernando Espinoza shared stories about Mr. Aymar’s insatiable curiosity and his passion for the language and learning. Mr. Aymar’s impact was themed all over from book centerpieces to the literary artwork for sale. We delivered on our promise for Stories, Memories and Laughter. Incredibly grateful to our supporters.
The Legacy Left to His Students
At our April 30th event, we unveiled a video made by Carlos Neira - a 4th grade student back in 1996 - who is today a videographer. At our launch event in April 2016, these students sat down and shared their heartfelt thoughts of appreciation. Our Foundation intends to share his life lessons with Middle School Students to continue the impact that great teachers have in our lives.
Inspiring Middle School Students through Our Workshops
Our Mission is to continue to help Middle Schoolers with all the lessons that Mr. Aymar provided his students over 22 years. The workshops have proven to be a perfect venue for us to connect his passion, kindness and humor to empower students to have more independent learning habits. We have completed two series of Free Workshops in Partnership with the West Orange Public Library.
We want Middle Schoolers to avoid the 'Summer Slide' — the tendency for students to lose academic skills over the summer. Join us starting July 22nd for our “ TeensSpeak” Workshop on Public Speaking at the West Orange Public Library. Don’t miss it!!! For more details, visit www.wopl.org
We are grateful to Tami Evans, a wonderful parent, who captured our last workshop where we handed Certificates of Ambassador to each participating student.
Keep up to date on our fundraising efforts, events, and goodwill. We promise not to send you too many emails!
