Thank you donors! Thanks to you, we successfully exceeded our annual fund goal yet again.
With the slogan, Strong Bodies, Strong Minds: Helping Students to Become Fit for Life! the aim of the Annual Fund was to increase overall awareness in lifelong health and fitness by engaging students of all ages in unique & fun fitness activities by creating new fitness opportunities inside the gyms and on the ASM premises, while enriching existing ones.
A total of euro € 158,860 was raised to this end, exceeding our goal of € 150,000.
Thanks to your contributions, over the summer, we installed a state-of the-art climbing and bouldering wall in our gym, created a new dance room and enhanced our gym with all sorts of new exercise equipment for elementary, middle and high school students. We also were able to purchase and install a scoreboard in our second gym for matches and tournaments!

In keeping with past years, the 2012-13 Annual Fund exceeded its goal of euro € 120,000 for the "Put the Cafetorium Back into the Auditorium" project.
A total of € 167,043 in cash donations was raised to improve the sound, lighting and comfort in the ASM auditorium to enhance our performing arts and music events for students and audience alike. Thanks to the Annual Fund, new acoustic panelling was installed in the cafetorium, a new sound system was implemented complete with two monitors and two vertical speaker arrays, two sub woofers and a state-of-the-art soundboard. New chairs, reserved for musical and theatrical events, were also purchased while lighting was cleaned and refurbished.
Our 50th Anniversary Annual Fund for Excellence was a huge success. We exceeded our goal and raised 133,000 Euro to turn our library into a Bibliotech, a true 21st century E-Learning Center.
Thanks to the Annual Fund donations, we have inaugurated a state-of-the-art Motion Picture Arts Studio complete with editing lab and green screen/film production equipment. Already this year, the Studio is being used for digital storytelling in the Elementary School and for the following Upper School courses: Digital Photography, Introduction to Film and IB Film.
We have also purchased over 1,000 e-books for our students, and begun a digital video library of educational films, available 24/7 to all ASM community members, which can be downloaded to any digital device.
