Dear American Academy Parents,
We have Field Day on May 23rd! Your student should bring a sack lunch to school if they didn't buy the Hotdog Lunch. Also, make sure to send your student to school with sunscreen, plenty of water, and a hat. You are welcome to join in the fun and laughter!
Distribution and Signing -Tuesday, May 21 from 2:30-3:15
Final Week Schedule - Free Dress week
We will take some morning time to do the Move Up to Middle School practice, where your student will get acquainted with the new environment coming their way next year. This time will be followed by normal classes and routines.
Math and specials will be normal, during snack the students will have Q and A time with some of the middle school staff. AM and PM rotations for literacy, history, and science will both be conducted before lunch.
After lunch, there will be two classrooms designated for makeup work, while two are designated for fun. Once students have finished all makeup work they will be able to join one of the fun classrooms. The school wide yearbook signing will take place from 2:30-3:15, at which time students will return to their homerooms and dismiss as normal.
This day will be our end of the year party! Students will rotate at designated intervals through the classrooms to enjoy some fun activities with all their teachers! Then it's PIZZA, PIZZA, PIZZA for all! Who doesn't like relaxing and eating pizza with friends???
When we are not in Field Day, we will be cleaning the rooms, the desks, and watching movies until SCHOOL-IS-OUT-FOR-SUUUMMER! So, NO school supplies or folders are necessary this day, but empty backpacks are encouraged in order to bring home any items from school.
Make sure not to miss any of the fun!
Field Day Schedule
We will be having our hot dog lunch at 11:45 followed by Field Day Festivities from 12:30 - 3:00.
Parents are more than welcome to attend to cheer on their outgoing 5th graders. It will be a blast.
REMINDER: if you have not paid for your child to eat the hot dog lunch that day, please be sure to send a sack lunch as the cafeteria will be closed.

Fifth Grade Specials
Please visit the respective links below to see what your child is experiencing in specials programming!
As this school year comes to an end and we celebrate the accomplishments of our students, I want to be certain that their art work from the Student Art Show is returned and taken home.
I am in some need of volunteers to help take down the Art Show. My amazing volunteers that helped put the show up, did a wonderful job labeling what art work belongs to which classes. I will need help taking the artwork off the walls (and sticky tape) and organizing into piles to be distributed back to students to take home.
If you could please pick a slot on sign up genius, it would be a tremendous help. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050C48ABA828AAFB6-artshow1
