What's New in the Land of the Titans

It's Gift Wrap Time!!!

We Need YOUR Help!

AEHS Gift Wrap at Westfield Wheaton starts on December 1!!!

ISO: Volunteers! 

This is our 25th year operating the gift wrap booth, and we need a lot of adult volunteers to make this happen.  We can't do it without you!  

We have jobs for wrappers and non-wrappers, and high school students earn SSL hours for volunteering.  This is also an incredibly fun and important way to get to know your Einstein community, work alongside our amazing students, get inside scoops from seasoned parents, and raise funds for essential causes that benefit all of our kids.

This is our only major fundraiser of the year, and we can't do it without lots of help.  No experience is necessary, we have jobs for wrappers and non-wrappers, and training is provided.  Students earn SSL hours.  Every present we wrap is a gift to all Einstein students and supports so many worthwhile programs - After Prom, teacher and student mini-grants, Taste of Einstein and much, much more.

This year the booth is located next to Panera Bread in the old Elevation Burger space at Westfield Wheaton.  Sign up instructions are below.  This is a fun and wonderful way to support your community.

The PTSA is still seeking volunteers for:
  • Latino engagement
  • Membership
  • School Improvement -- a position we haven't filled in a few years, but it would be great to have someone who can work on advocating for all sorts of school needs!
