Monday AM Notes, March 4 2024

School wide theme: Stewardship

Hey all,
What a week it was last week–thank you, thank you, thank you for all the hard work, love, and guidance you put in to make the Variety Show so special! I laughed and I cried, and I was once again reminded just how special Amity is!

An update from LA: My dad did well with the surgery and is recovering. He’ll be in the hospital another day or two and then will have to move him to a rehab facility for a few weeks. All in all things are moving in the right direction and I’m so happy that I’m here with him! I need to stay an extra day so I will miss school Monday but will be back Tuesday. Brad will be there again, and I am a phone call or text away–don’t hesitate to reach out.

A few notes to get you going:
1) Patti returns this week-need I say more?! Welcome back Patti!
And of course, we are so grateful for all that Kelli did while we were gone–a true angel! She genuinely appreciated all the love that came her way on Friday!

2) The Amity lottery info night is this Thursday from 5-6pm. We’ll chat about this at SIW this week.

3) Meetings this week: Team Collaboration Time on Tuesday (2:45-3:30), and SIW on Wednesday (1:30-3:30). I’ll send an agenda soon for Wednesday.

4) Are you using the Print Shop whenever possible? Currently we do 75% of printing here at school, 25% at the shop. The more we send to the shop for printing the cheaper the copies are, and doing so saves us vital funds that could be spent on other things! Please do your best to get copy orders to the Print Shop whenever possible. Thanks!

5) New end of year schedule: June 12 is now early release (SIW), June 14 is now a full day, June 18 (last day) is a 1pm dismissal. Obviously we have lots to discuss about those 2 new days but just wanted to get this to you now. We’ll talk!

6) Visiting artists coming in March and April–I have been coordinating with Gina and both will be during Enrichment. March 12/15, 19/22 will be drama and April 2 and 9 will be portraits with acrylic paint. I’m super excited for both!

March 5: Team Collaboration Time, 2:45-3:30pm
March 6: SIW in-house, 1:30pm
March 7: Lottery Info Night for incoming Kindergarten families, 5-6pm
May 4: Auction! May the 4th be with you…some type of space related theme
May 31: Summit High production of The Real Story of the 3 Pigs is coming to Amity, 8:30am.

Here’s to a great week ahead!
