8th Grade Slide Show Picture – Due May 3rd

We are putting together a special slideshow for our 8th grade students which will play during the celebration. We would love to have 2 pictures: a baby picture and a more recent picture of your student to add to the presentation. This is completely optional, but it has been a big hit in past graduation celebrations.  Please email pictures to Tammie Waddell DUE NO LATER THAN MAY 3rd. Please put Slide Slow picture in the subject line.


End of Year 8th Grade Edge Adventure Trip

We are excited to let you know that we have planned our 8th grade end of year activity. Our 8th grade students are invited to join their classmates on a fun and adventurous day trip to Epic Sky Trek in Castle Rock on Thursday, May 9th. This is an exciting opportunity for them to spend time together. The students will have the chance to celebrate the culmination of their 8th grade year by having fun and bonding; as well as working on communicating and problem-solving skills. Activities include Ziplining, “Sky Trek”, and the “Adventure Tower”.


Registration for the 8th grade Epic Sky Trek field trip is a two-step process. Both steps need to be completed for your child to be able to attend this field trip. The deadline to register is midnight on April 26th. The cost of this trip is $110, which includes a pizza lunch, snacks and drinks.


  1. Parents will need to register their student for the field trip on the American Academy School Store.
  2. On the American Academy School Store (and on your confirmation email) you will be able to find a link to complete a waiver for Epic Sky Trek.
