Mrs. Walker’s Tiger Blog Bites- Week of April 18th:

OAA Spirit Week:  We have a lot of fun events planned for the 3 day week ahead.  In celebrating and motivating students for the OAA, students and staff will be participating in a spirit week.  We would LOVE for all of our students to participate in each of the daily themes.



Monday, April 18thShow your School Spirit (Wear Spirit Wear)

Tuesday, April 19thRelax & Do your Best on the Test (PJ Day)

Wednesday, April 20thDress for Success (Wear your Very Best)

OAA PEP Assembly:  On Wednesday, April 20th, students will participate in a OAA pep assembly.  Each classroom in grades 3, 4, and 5 will perform a song or skit revolving around “showing what they know” on the OAA.  This is always a favorite activity for Amelia Students!!  Look for video and photos later in the week!

OAA Sponsor Program:  Kindergarten, first and second grades each “sponsor” a testing grade level.  They work to create motivational posters and decorations to be displayed in the hallways.  What a powerful message promoting success!!

OAA DANCE:  Friday, May 13th   The OAA dance has become a tradition at Amelia Elementary over the past few years.  All students who are in attendance during each day of testing will participate in the OAA dance scheduled for May 13th.  ATTENDANCE ON TESTING DAYS IS CRITICAL!  Each student that is absent on a testing day is required to make-up the test before the mandatory shipping date (typically only have a few days to complete). 

Lets make perfect attendance our goal!!!!


  • 3rd grade:  April 26th and April 28th
  • 4th grade:  April 27th and May 3rd
  • 5th grade:  April 26th, April 28th and May 3rd

NO SCHOOL:  This is a reminder that we do not have school on Thursday and Friday of this week due to spring break.  I hope that you have a wonderful extended weekend with family!!
