AEA Clubs & Partnerships

AEA Clubs

Each year AEA is able to to offer students in specific grades the opportunity to enroll in an AEA club taught by AEA teachers! Please note: admission into these clubs are based on audition and/or lottery. Here are a list of some the clubs that AEA has offered:  

Dance Troupe

Mrs. Bonthuys and Ms. Garger work with a group of students from the upper grades on dance techniques and choreography, that they use to put on a dance performance at the end of their sessions. Past performances include, "On Broadway", "A Night at the Movies" and "Dancing Through the Decades."  Students have to audition to be part of this group.


This program will focus on the basics of coding. Students will learn the basics of programming with the goal of coding to create their own video game or digital art! 


Artist in Focus

The class focuses on different artists, learning about their history and art techniques. The students apply what they learn to create similar pieces. Students are chosen on a first come, first serve basis.  


5th Grade Newspaper 

Students in the 5th grade will work to create a digital newspaper, "The AEA Wolverine Times"  to describe the happenings going on at AEA. Students work together to brainstorm, research, and write articles. Other sections include reviews, crossword puzzles, and even riddles! 


Math Club 

During Math League, students will work together in small groups to solve complicated, high level, rigorous math problems. Once a month, they will participate independently in a competitive, Mathletes-style competition.

CASA- Flushing Town Hall

Made possible by the generous CASA grant, we have had the opportunity to partner with Flushing Town Hall to provide our students an afterschool program learning about various art forms. Our students have learned and performed Korean Drums, Cumbia (a Colombian folklore dance), Global Drums and Mexican Dance


AEA has partnered with Juilliard to bring their Morse Teaching Fellows program to our school. Through our partnership, students in grades 2-5 have been able to experience the music of the Ivalas String Quartet as an in person concert. In addition, classes are taught by Juilliard fellows who bring their musical expertise and passion into the classroom.


The New York Pops’ innovative PopsEd music education programming allows New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds to participate in fully customizable music programs that blend traditional education with pure fun. Our students have enjoyed working with Mr. Kevin learning songs and later performing for our families. We also receive free tickets to local performances throughout the year. 

Junior Achievement

Junior Achievement has 104 local JA Areas across the nation, and are the nation's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. Yearly, we have had the privilege of welcoming Junior Achievement students from local schools to speak to our students.
