Here’s what educators say about Stars in Our Schools:
“Receiving a star is one of the most meaningful gifts to get. I love receiving these because I feel truly appreciated as a teacher, and I know that the donation people make is going back to a great organization that really supports our schools.” – ARMS Co-Assistant Principal and ELL Teacher Alicia Lopez
“I was really moved when I received some Stars in Our Schools cards in my mailbox indicating that the parents of some of my students had donated to AEF in my honor. AEF does very important work to support teachers and programs at ARMS, so a monetary gift is like thanking a teacher twice!” – ARMS Science Teacher Jennifer Welborn
“I have had the good fortune to be honored by parents and members of the Amherst community through their ‘Stars in our Schools’ donations to AEF. When making their donations, parents and relatives have commented specifically that they see their children singing with joy and self-confidence and that they have an appreciation for music of different world cultures. It is deeply satisfying to know that what we do in the schools gets carried out into the community.” – Fort River Elementary School Music Teacher Anne Louise White (retired 6/2017)
