A Week and Counting…

It is hard to believe that the summer has flown by so quickly.  The Amelia Elementary staff is ready for the start of the 2011-2012 school year.  Although we anticipate many challenges with the loss of transportation, we are excited to have the children back ready to learn.  

 As with every year, we look forward to hearing of the places that our students vacationed, “stay-cation” activities or other summer fun.  Feel free to respond to this post telling of your summer excitement.  Below are a few photos of Amelia staff members enjoying the summer with family!

 The following are important dates:

 Monday, August 29thTransportation Meeting (Please choose either 5:00 or 7:00 to pick-up transportation tags and to hear the procedures for arrival and dismissal.  It is imperative that you attend one of the sessions.

 Thursday, September 1stOpen House 4:30-6:30 pm

 Tuesday, September 6thFirst Day of School  Drop-off and breakfast will begin at 8:45.  Do not release your children until staff members direct you to do so.

 Some pointers worth repeating from the first 2 transportation meetings:

  • Arrival time is 8:45 am
  • Do not be in a hurry.  It will take time for students, parents and staff to become efficient with procedures.  
  • Please do not yell at staff members.  The are doing as directed.  If you have concerns, feel free to direct them to me.  Safety is our primary concern.
  • All students must have a book bag and back-pack tag (bus, walker, family number) must be attached to the backpack.
  • Bike riders MUST wear a helmet.

Collaboration between parents and staff is now more important than ever as we all are trying to do more with less. Amelia is looking forward to a fabulous year of learning and fun, and we thank you in advance for helping to get us off to a great start!
