Amelia Tiger Closet

We are proud to announce the opening of Amelia Tiger Closet. The goal of Amelia Tiger Closet is to help the less fortunate students in our school get a jump start by providing the necessities most of us take for granted. A “store” will be set up so that our needy children and their families will be able to choose gently used clothing, shoes, coats and many more items.  We will begin accepting donations on Monday, December 5, 2011. Please bag or box your gently used items (washed) and drop them off in the front entrance of the school building between the hours of 8am and 10am., Monday-Friday. A receipt will be provided upon request.  We will accept any gently used child’s clothing or shoes, however with the cold winter months fast approaching, our immediate focus will be on winter coats, shoes/boots, hats, gloves and socks.  If your child or a member of our school family are in need of gently used items, please contact 943-3800 to set up a time to visit the Amelia Tiger Closet.

 Breakfast with Santa

Our annual Breakfast with Santa is Saturday, December 10 at R-Place in Amelia (Swan Lane- Across from the former La Donna’s Cafe). Ticket cost is $4/person and includes your picture with Santa! The first session (10a-11a) is full, however spots are still available for the 8:30a-9:30a session. If you wish to attend, please fill out your registration form and return it with payment to your child’s teacher. Checks can be made payable to AEPTA. Due to lack of parking and space limitations in the building, absolutely no walk-ups will be permitted. If you are in need of another registration form, please contact Beth Burcham

Holiday Shop

This year’s Holiday Shop will be open Monday, December 12 through Friday, December 16. Each class will be assigned a specific time slot during which students may shop. Gifts for family, friends, relatives, pets and even local professional and collegiate sports teams will be available. With over 100 “kid-priced” gifts, the students are sure to find that perfect gift! A portion of this year’s proceeds will go toward providing gifts and food to our Amelia Elementary needy families during thisHolidayseason. An envelope and explanation of items will be sent home with students this week. If you wish to volunteer during the Holiday Shop, please contact Danielle Humphries at:

Classroom Holiday Parties

Classroom Holiday Parties will take place on Friday, December 23 (T/R kindergarten will be on Thursday, December 22nd).  If you wish to volunteer during the party, please contact your child’s Head Room Parent. This year, each student will make a keep-sake ornament to bring home to parents.
