ACE- Here’s to a great 2012!   Leave a comment

2011 was an incredible year for ACE punctuated by an incredible spring luncheon with keynote speaker Michelle Rhee. The tremendous outpouring of support from that event, and the generosity of our donors throughout the year, allowed us to supported 1,200 low-income children for the 2011-12 school year.

What’s more, last year’s success will enabled ACE to add 300 new scholarship recipients for the 2012-13 school year, increasing our scholarship program to 1,500 low-income children.
To put this in perspective, in 2008 ACE supported 727 students; to almost double our scholarship program during one of the most challenging economic climates in recent memory is an incredible achievement.
Thank you for all you have done to make this possible!
Just a month into the year, 2012 has already started off with some exciting developments
ACE was honored to partner with close to twenty other Colorado organizations to launch ColoradoSchoolGrades.com an online tool that allows parents to better understand how their public school is performing by assigning each school with an easy-to-understand letter-grade based on state data. This site gives parents valuable information to make an informed choice about their child’s education.
Also last month, we sponsored an exciting event as part of National School Choice Week during which tens of thousands of people attended more than 400 events across the nation to shine a spotlight on the need for better educational options for children.
ACE was the Title Sponsor of an event in Castle Rock that brought more than 1,200 people together to hear about the benefits of school choice and take away valuable ideas about how they can get involved in this critical cause.
2012 will indeed be an exciting year as we continue to showcase the  impact that school choice can have on the lives of kids… kids like Julio, Lindsay and Nehemias.
Thank you for your continued interest and investment in ACE and Colorado’s children. It’s an investment with untold rewards.Here’s to a great 2012!
