Reward Celebration and Ice Cream Donations!
The fifth and sixth graders will be having an ice cream social as a celebration for a job well done this school year. The celebration will be held in the afternoon of Wednesday, May 30, and students who have an average of $30 or more in weekly Kickboard earnings for the trimester are invited to enjoy a sundae and a movie. To make this happen, we need your help with donations. Please go to www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C044BACAE2BA4FF2-icecream
On our last day of school, students will have the opportunity to play games. Students are encouraged to bring one or more board games from home to share.
Just a friendly reminder that Fall sports at American Academy starts right after the start of the school year and are available to middle school students from 6th to 8th grade. If your daughter is interested in playing volleyball for AA, be on the lookout for open gym and tryout times as soon as you get back to school.
Field Day is scheduled for Friday, June 1st. Kindergarten – 2nd Grade will participate from 8:30AM- 11:00PM and 3rd Grade – 6th Grade will participate from 12:30PM – 3:00PM. Coach McGarva, our PE Teacher, needs 2-3 volunteers for each station. Please note, if you sign up as a field day volunteer, you will be assigned a specific station for the duration. Volunteers will not rotate positions/stations or follow their child from station to station. To volunteer, please sign up here:
