Mrs. Walker’s Tiger Bites for the Week of April 30th:


We welcome May during our 33rd week of school! If the weather forecast is correct, we will also welcome back some warmer temperatures.

OAA Testing:  The next week’s OAA testing schedule is listed below.  Remember that it is very important that students are in school on scheduled testing dates.  I appreciate how hard that students and parents have worked to have students to school and on time during last week’s testing.  Our attendance was wonderful! 

Flying Pig Info:   PTA will pick up all registration packets for the Flying Pig Kids Marathon on Monday, April 30 and will distribute them to your child on Wednesday, May 2.   We ask that all registered AE students meet at the entrance to Great American Ballpark no later than 11:30. Our group has been assigned white T-shirts, so please look for those. A course map will be distributed on Wednesday of next week, but will also be included in your packet. Each school will be assigned a location and “wave” start. That will be included in your packet as well. The start will begin at Noon and will continue in 5-minute start “waves”. Kids will go through finishers “chutes” for flow and safety. Group reunion area will be near the big Paddle Wheel monument on Mehring Way.  Bring your cameras… this would be a WONDERFUL event!
