Elementary Principal Letter

Dear ANCS Elementary Families,

We are excited about Curriculum Night tomorrow evening. You should have gotten details about how to join from your child’s teachers by now. If you haven’t, please reach out to them so you can join. Just as a reminder, here is the schedule.

  • 5:00-5:25 – Session one
  • 5:25-5:30 – Break
  • 5:30-5:55 – Session two

If you want/need more information about why we have a Curriculum Night, please see last week’s courier letter.

This weeks Guiding Principle focus is, we take responsibility for our actions and learning. Your student will have spent time talking about this in the classroom and we have discussed it briefly at our school-wide morning meeting, held virtually Tuesdays-Fridays. Ask your child about his/her understanding of that Guiding Principle and what the Guiding Principles are at ANCS.

You can help us have a more efficient arrival each day by making sure you have completed the SchoolDoc screener each morning by 7:30. It is also helpful for your child to have his/her mask on and backpack ready to go when you pull up to school each day. Additionally, arriving to school in the window of time for your child’s grade level helps prevent a lot of congestion. Here is a reminder of what those times are.

  • Kindergarten, First & Second grade – Mondays 9:00-9:10 & T-F 7:30-7:40
  • Families with students spanning K-5 – Mondays 9:10-9:20 & T-F 7:40-7:50
  • Third, Fourth & Fifth grade – Mondays 9:20-9:30 & T-F 7:50-8:00

If you child eats breakfast at school, you can arrive between 7:30 and 7:45 Tuesdays-Friday. Breakfast ends at 7:50.

Please make a note that if you need to pick your child up early from school the latest time that can happen is 1:45. The end of the day is a busy time at the desk. Also, please communicate any early dismissal plans with your child’s teachers so they are prepared.

As always, I am happy to answer any questions you may have.


Take care,
