This Week in Review:

Dear Families,

        It was a pleasure to have the school community join together for Back to School Night on Monday evening.  Your presence was truly invigorating and created a school spirit that has helped jump start this very exciting school year! 

       Your children have gotten into the swing of things too.  Our “early morning care” program has begun and I have suggested to  the children that they bring a book to read in the morning.  I think it is important to encourage reading as a quality pastime. 

       The “extended day ” program has a new and improved component.  It incorporates outdoor activity led by Brian Dorrian, our Director.  The students now have the opportunity to enjoy outdoor play along with beginning their homework. 

       MAP testing has begun for Kindergarteners through grade 8 students.  The data derived will provide teachers the opportunity to set goals for their students so that academic growth can be further developed. 

       Strike up the band ! Grades 2 through 8 enjoyed a presentation by Paul Effman Music on Thursday afternoon.  A flyer will go home today with details on various instruments your child may be interested in learning to play at school.  Band will meet Thursday afternoons.

      I am happy to report the children whom have sampled the lunches from our new program, have given it rave reviews.

      We are officially off to a great start at AES and there is plenty more to look forward to ….. just see the week in Preview !
