AEF Summer School – Holly Avenue Elementary School

Here’s a glimpse of what the elementary students of AEF Summer School were up to this summer.
Pretty impressive, huh!
Did we mention that these projects were done by elementary school students?












  • Minecraft Edu – Students built and discovered our nation’s history in a virtual world setting.
  • Future Filmmakers – Students got the opportunity to write, direct, edit and produce their own movie.
  • Dance – Students learn basic jazz & hip-hop moves to popular music as routines were choreographed for the end-of-summer Showcase.
