CHILDREN'S COMMUNITY LIBRARY NAMED
posted 15 September 2018

"Truly touched by this wonderful initiative taken by
Dalbir Kaur Madan and OneUp Library. Our mother touched many lives and she would have supported
this cause wholeheartedly. She truly believed the
library to be the heart of any educational institution
and a vibrant reading culture essential to any society. During her lifetime, she helped create world-class
libraries and reading programs across the country, nurtured a love for reading in thousands of children
and mentored an entire generation of librarians to
carry on her work." - Himani Dalmia (Bandana Sen's daughter-in-law)

NEW AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM
posted 15 September 2018

This past Thursday morning (13 SEPT 2018), with students cheering, we
switched on four "Aufero" outdoor air purification systems in the high school
atrium. We will begin collecting AQI data next week to begin monitoring their
impact on air quality in the high school. BIG thanks to last year's Board of
Governors for their initiative and support for this project. We also thank the staff members who worked hard last weekend to install them quickly. We will keep the community informed about the results as we move through the coming months.
- from Jim Laney, Jr (AES Director)

SONGWRITER
posted 9 September 2018

YeRyeon, a Senior at AES, wrote and recorded two songs over the summer.
Here are the links to her songs: Airplane and Edge.
In YeRyeon's words, "This summer in Korea, I decided to start an ambitious
project: I would complete two songs and publish them to the world while stay-
ing within the budget of around $270. In June, I composed the song with my
guitar, made the chorus melody, wrote the lyrics, and went to a studio to record
my vocals and guitar. After that, I re-arranged the song in Logic Pro and added
MIDI tracks to further improve how the songs would sound. In July, I worked with
a mix/master engineer to polish my songs and sent them to a music publisher that would help my songs to be uploaded on iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, the Korean music market like Melon, Gini, or Bugs, and more. You can find Airplane and Edge on any
of the countries previously mentioned music platforms by searching for ‘iink Airplane” or “iink Edge."


PHOTAGO
posted 9 September 2018

As you may recall, a few days ago we reported we received a
message from Photago - the site we used to collect photos from
our alumni for our 2015 REUNION SLIDESHOW PRESENTATION
- that they are shutting down permanently, 1 November 2018.
Now, the site seems to be giving trouble getting into as a guest. We were able to contact Photago to get into this account again. We snagged and turned all 271 photos into one large PDF file. Since the photos you originally submitted came in
all sizes and shapes, you will have to increase or decrease the PDF size as you go through each photos. We don't have the software magic to turn each photo the
same size and shape, but many of you requested to be able to see the photos
again. This should work. Enjoy again!

FLORIDA MINI-REUNION
posted 28 June 2018
posted 23 June 2018 (on Facebook)

We got together with Krista and Glen Minehart last night in Melbourne, Florida,
at a waterfront place called Squid Lips.
We talked for so long our table was unavailable for other peak-hour diners, annoying the wait staff. Who cares? We don't see each other often enough.
