AEG, a longstanding community partner of 10th Street Elementary School in Los Angeles, recently surprised graduating fifth-grade students and their families at the Pico-Union campus on Thursday, June 10 with an impromptu culmination celebration.
As students stopped by the school to take a photo with their teachers following their online culmination ceremony, AEG employees were on-site to hand out 125 LA Galaxy backpacks stuffed with various school supplies and goodies from AEG’s NHL team, the LA Kings in addition to hosting an ice cream truck for students, families and staff to enjoy.
“AEG has been a steadfast partner in enriching the lives and academic success of 10th Street students for 15 years,” said William Otto, principal, Tenth Street Elementary School. “From their on-going support and participation in our on-site reading program with Read to a Child, providing students Christmas gifts and encouraging perfect attendance by hosting fun bowling events – in addition to hosting our annual (pre-COVID) culmination ceremony at L.A. LIVE, they continue to be a proud supporter of our students’ future.”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, AEG employees remained engaged with students through the virtual Read to a Child program, facilitated by the school and literary nonprofit organization.
