NEWS FROM THE OFFICE……..  Over all things are pretty quiet here at Amelia as it usually is this time of year.  Hold on tight though, after Spring Break has come and gone things really seem to fly by!  Before you know it I will start the countdown to the end of the school year!! 

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION………… As mentioned in previous posts, kindergarten registration for the 2013-14 school year was last week for Amelia Elementary.  If you missed our registration window, feel free to contact the district office at 943-5000.  It is important for our students to register as soon as possible so that we can begin to plan for staffing and sections needed.
