Arrival and Dismissal Reminders:


Parents,

I need to remind everyone at arrival and dismissal to please follow the traffic patterns as previously posted.  When one person does not follow the correct procedures, the entire process is slowed down.  I had a few parents report ugly confrontations in the parking lot due to this situation.  The last thing that I want is for our children to witness inappropriate language or behavior from adults.  I know that this is frustrating for you but please be considerate of others.   

The biggest issue that is occurring is that some cars are attempting to cut into the line coming from the wrong way on Church Street.    The traffic pattern for drop off in the front lot is for ALL cars to enter Church Street from Chapel and exit on 125. 

Arrival begins at 8:45 AM.  Please DO NOT drop your children off before this time.  Please wait for my staff members to be at their designated locations before letting your children out of the cars.  This is to ensure that everyone is safe and supervised.

Please help me by following the procedure.   Have a great day,

Stephanie

West Clermont’s new superintendent, Dr. Kline, spent the morning visiting Amelia Elementary classrooms, meeting teachers and interacting with students. He was extremely impressed with the intelligent and respectful students that we have. Thank you for spending the day with us and learning about our wonderful school.

Month Long Celebrations:
• Most notable: Black History Month: The HISTORY Channel is my favorite go to learn about and celebrate black history.
• And…February is also the month to celebrate international friendship, pet ownership, potatoes, cherries, wild birds and embroidery. It’s also the shortest month…and before we know it, we will be looking ahead to March. So make the most of it!

We are still having an issue with a lot of tardy students in the morning. Please, we are asking on your part that you get your students to school on time. As a reminder the first bell rings at 8:45am and the second bell at 9:05 am, which is when the students should be settled in their class and attendance is taken by the teachers. When students are tardy, they are missing the essential morning procedures. Also, late students entering classrooms are a distraction to the other learners. Thank you for helping remedy this concern.

Happy 100th Day of the School Year!

AMELIA ELEMENTARY STUDENTS JUMP FOR THEIR HEARTS AND HELP SAVE LIVES


 Dear Parents,

 

 

 

Our students are jumping at the chance to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers. During the month of February (beginning February 11st), Amelia elementary is hosting its annual Jump Rope for Heart event to raise money for the American Heart Association, which funds lifesaving heart and stroke research and community and educational programs for our youth.

 Jump Rope for Heart teaches students how physical fitness benefits the heart.  By raising money through Jump Rope for Heart, we are preventing heart disease and obesity for the next generation of Americans. Kids are literally jumping into a heart healthier life while becoming passionate about raising money for other kids with sick hearts.

For over 33 years, Jump Rope For Heart has raised more than $818 million for the fight against heart disease and stroke. Millions of students have jumped rope and learned about heart health and how nutrition and physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke.

 I am asking students to donate $1 to our cause.  If every student donates just one dollar, our school will collect over $700 in order to help children with sick hearts.  

 You will be receiving a parent letter next week.  On the back side of the parent letter are “in honor” or “in memory” hearts.  Feel free to have your child indicate a family member or friend’s name that has had a sick heart.  Decorate the heart and return it to your child’s teacher.  We would like to have a heart wall of fame displayed in our first floor hallway. 

 Thank you for your support with this great cause,

 Sincerely,
Stephanie Walker
