Supporting our Local Schools

Ernie’s is excited to announce that we are a proud sponsor of the Academia Ana Marie Sandoval Elementary School. This school is a unique educational combination of a dual language learning environment (English and Spanish) offered within an authentic Montessori framework in the DPS school system. Their vision is to foster a community of lifelong learners guided by a love of learning, interest and appreciation for other cultures and a desire to create a peaceful world.

We are also working with an organization called Amigos Del La Academia Sandoval.  This is an independent, non-profit organization associated with Academia Sandoval school.  Their mission is to raise money for the early childhood education program and other education purposes so that Sandoval can deliver a high-quality public education.  They raise money for scholarships, paraprofessional salaries, teacher training, reducing the student/teacher ratio and field trips.

Several fundraising events are coming up if you want to join our effort in supporting a local school in need:

  • Sweet-Heart Dance: February 9th
  • Sandoval Night Live: March 21st
  • Amigo -A-Go-Go (run-a-thon):  May 5th
    Update: Runathon Prize Winner, Josie won a Pizza Party for she and her friends at Ernie’s
