Students learn value of AEF, make video

(Continued)

AVON —

“That really helps freshmen get acquainted with the school and high school would have been hard without it.”

For current student Annie Scholtes, she too expanded on Arnold’s feelings, saying that the AEF and freshmen orientation are pivotal.

“Freshmen would be coming in completely lost, like lost dogs not knowing where to buy your lunch even,” she said. “High school is scary enough coming in.”

The students also said that helping to fund band and choir camps, events that students say are and will always be essential to future student success.

“They’ll teach you how to play an instrument before you get thrown into band class, and those are items that would be completely cut from the school without the AEF,” said Willis. “That helps a lot, going to camp, continuing your education over the summer. A lot of programs would be cut that are so essential for students.”

“It’s so hard for teachers to get supplies for class, and having the AEF be able to fund things that are so specific for helping kids, that’s the extra mile (they go). It leads to a better education and a more well-rounded experience for kids.”

The students also admitted they learned where the funding came from, saying it was heartwarming to know how many people that don’t even have children in school contribute to the foundation and help students along the way.
