Kindergarten Schedule & Report Cards:

Good morning!

I wanted to take a moment to remind parents that Monday/Wednesday kindergarten students will be in session this Friday.

Also, look in back-packs for report cards.  They will be coming home with students on Friday!

Have a nice day!

Students at Amelia are really moving!  Each classroom is graphing the miles walked between now and May.  Can you believe that Amelia students have walked a total of 279 miles?

In need of a winter coat?

I have a handful of winter coats, gloves, scarves and hats available for students that may need them.  If you need a coat for your child, please contact the office at 943-3800 or email me at walker_s2@westcler.org
