BIG NEWS!

Hello Creeker Families!
It’s been a while since I have been in touch–truth be told I have been waiting for the moment when I could announce a return to our beloved Amity Creek building. And today is that day! I am beyond thrilled to announce that we will be returning to Amity Creek on Monday, March 15–just two weeks from today! I will have have lots of information to share about the move soon, but for today let’s just bask in the glory of the good news!

In anticipation of our return, I snuck into Amity last week and have put together a little sneak peek of the remodel…

We will need some extra move-in help on Sunday, March 14 from 8am-4pm. If you have a little time to spare on that day please email me and let me know (only parents will be allowed to be in the building, no kiddos): [email protected]

Classified Employee Week
Every year we have a week to honor and appreciate our classified employees–these are all the people who work at the school who are not certified teachers (custodians, bus drivers, office support, educational assistants, maintenance, etc). For Amity this includes Patti (office manager), Mindy (Educational assistant), Nathan (Educational assistant and Musician-in-residence), Karima (Educational assistant), Kim (Nurse), and Scott (North Star custodian). If you feel inspired to send a thank you to any one or all of these amazing people, please do! We’re doing some card making here at school.
