  • The things that I would miss the most from Amelia Elementary is the principal Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Langdon and Mrs. Fowler.  I love this school no matter what even if I get in trouble a lot.

Clermont County Youth Orchesrta Program for Interested 5th Grade Students:

Dear 5th Grade AE Families,

The Northern Kentucky University Music Prep Department has created the Clermont County Youth Orchestra for West Clermont students in grades 7-12 who have a least one year experience playing a stringed instrument. Our West Clermont students rehearse on Monday evenings at Amelia High.

I have just gotten word that the program is expanding! In partnership with West Clermont, NKU’s Music Prep is now offering beginning strings instruction for students in grades 5-7 who have never played a stringed instrument before.

Parents of 5th grade students who are interested in this opportunity,  there will be a parent information night on January 23, 2012 from 5:15-6:15 at the Amelia High School band/orchestra room.

This is a great opportunity to get more information about the program, ask specific questions, have your child try instruments, get sized, and even place your rental order! Please bring your child to this meeting.

If you can’t attend Information Night, but would still like to enroll your child in the NKU Satellite Strings program, please contact them at (859) 572-PREP.

  • Cost is $160 per semester (February – May) plus the cost of instrument rental and book
  • Classes meet every Monday from 4:45–6:00pm in the Amelia HS band room
  • Students will perform a spring concert and opportunities to continue instruction both during the summer and next year will be available!

To ensure that we have enough instruments on hand to try, please RSVP before Friday, January 20, 2012 by calling (859) 572-PREP or email at musicprep@nku.edu.

Flying Pig Kids’ Marathon:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This morning, students in Kindergarten through 5th grade were excited to learn about the 2012 Flying Pig Kids’Marathon.  In collaboration with PTA, I have decided to bring this opportunity into Amelia in order to promote fitness, fun and healthy food choices.

The goal is to walk, jog or run the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) in the months leading up to the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon in May.  Each student will receive a “HOG LOG” to be used to track each mile completed towards the marathon goal.  Miles will be done at school during recess or can be done with family and/or friends.  Always pick a safe place and never go out alone.

Students can complete the marathon distance by completing the final mile as part of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Kids’ Marathon26th-Mile Event on Saturday, May 5, 2012.  Experience the thrill of victory by crossing over the actual Flying Pig Marathon finish line.  All registered participants ($10.00 registration fee) will receive a finisher’s medal and a t-shirt for a job well done.

Feel free to learn more about the event at the following website:   www.flyingpigmarathon.com
