  Isn’t is amazing to know that we only have 14 days left of the 2010-11 school year? 

Teacher Appreciation Week:  I wanted to take a moment to thank all families who participated in teacher appreciation week.  It was amazing to see all of the personal cards and letters, high-fives, student created poetry and yummy desserts brought in for teachers to enjoy.  You certainly made appreciation week wonderful!

Amelia Elementary Talent Show:   The Amelia Elementary Talent Show will be held on May 26th at 6:30 pm in the cafeteria.  Permission slips were sent home last week.  The rehearsal schedule is May 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25th in the cafeteria from 3:15-4:30.  You must attend each scheduled rehearsal.  If you are unable to make a rehearsal, a note must be sent in.  Please understand that if you miss one unexcused rehearsal you will not be able to participate in the Talent Show.  Parents, please pick your child up by 4:30.  Please note that some days we may run longer, so please be patient.  At the 1st rehearsal, you will need to have all props, people in your group, you music (sheet music and CD) and anything else you need to perform your talent.  Please bring the signed permission slip.
