AUTISM ACADEMY AQUATICS – Back to School Pool Parties 2018

By Anthony KaDarrell Thigpen


AUTISM – With more than 300 registrations and counting, the Autism Academy for Education and Development (AAED) is making waves for the new school year.

The school is hosting two separate pool parties, east and west valley students and families will have an opportunity to splash into fun.

The East Valley pool party will kick off Saturday, August 11th.

AAED has a lot to celebrate, with new east and west valley facilities, rapidly increasing enrollment, new innovative technologies, and an advancing curriculum. Family and friends of AAED are kicking off the 2018 school year with its annual Back to School Pool Parties.

East valley campuses are teaming together to make poolside connections. Students swim, splash around, interact on water slides, and play together amid a backdrop of upbeat music and lots of party food.

Inexperienced swimmers are also welcomed to join the poolside event at picnic style seating with a variety of pizzas, drinks and snacks. The A+ Academy Parent Partnership Program (P3) will sponsor a 50/50 raffle.

One week later, Saturday, August 18th, during the West Valley Back to School Party, AAED funding specialist Kym Wilbur is volunteering to host a Swim-A-Thon fundraiser. Supporters will cheer for Kym as she swims 30 minutes nonstop to raise tax exempt contributions for AAED at Swim-A-Thon.

There will be opportunities for fun, relaxation, networking and lots of food at both events.
