Lost and Found:

We have MANY items left in our “lost and found”.  If you are missing anything in particular, feel free to swing by the school to check if your article is here.  We will be donating any unclaimed items by the end of the day on Wednesday, June 13th.


Last Day of School 2011-12:

I simply cannot believe that today was the last day of the school year!  I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for making the day full of memories and fun.  Awards ceremonies, kindergarten graduation, 5th grade picnic, classroom celebrations and the walk-of-fame were the highlights.  It is always a bittersweet moment when our children leave the building on the last day in tears because the simply do not want the school year to end… this is the school environment that we strive to create! 

When I first became the principal of Amelia Elementary, our current 5th grade students were just starting their kindergarten school year. We both became Amelia Tigers at the same time.  How lucky I have been in order to work with such amazing boys and girls and to watch them grow into the wonderful students that they are today! I am very proud of our graduating students and look forward to hearing of their successes during the years to come.

Farewell 5th Graders:

It’s time to say good-bye
Our road has come to an end.
You have many cherished memories
and many more new friends.

We’ve watched your child learn and grow
and change from day to day.
We hope that all the things we’ve done
Have helped in some small way.

So it’s with happy memories
We send them out our door,
With great hope and expectations
for what the future holds in store.

I hope that you enjoy the slide show of the end-of-year activities.  Feel free to email me at walker_s2@westcler.org with a favorite photo to add to the slide show.

Last Week of School:

We are entering our final week of school for the 2011-12 school year. It has been an amazing year — one filled with memories of friendships (new and continued), learning celebrations and school happenings. We want you to know how much your support means to us — through volunteering in the classrooms, at PTA events and through your support of your child’s learning activities. Your support of your child’s learning environment makes it possible for our school to reach all learners. Our school is great because of you and your children!

Throughout the summer months, I will update our blog with details about the upcoming 2012-13 school year.

Here’s to a fantastic week…filled with sunshine and wrap up activities!
