Elementary Principal Letter

Dear ANCS Elementary Families,

We are all looking forward to the upcoming break. The students are working hard to stay focused on their school work as many classrooms are wrapping up units before the break. A gentle reminder at home each morning about staying focused on school would be helpful. Here is some important information about the upcoming break:

  • Friday, December 17th is an 11:30 dismissal and there is no after school. Please make sure your student knows how he/she is getting home and that you have communicated any changes with your child’s teachers.
  • If you have ordered lunch for your child, he/she will receive a sack lunch prior to leaving school on Friday. 
  • Winter Break is Monday, December 20th through Monday, January 3rd. Teachers and staff will be back in person on Monday, January 3rd for a workday and you will receive your child’s progress report via email that day. 
  • Tuesday, January 4th is the first day back for students and it is a regular school day beginning at 8:00. 

I want to give a shout out to Ms. Wawerna, our wonderful music teacher. Many of you know that Winterfest is a beautiful tradition here at the elementary campus. We have not been able to enjoy this the past couple of years due to the pandemic. However, Ms. Wawerna has not let that stop her from showcasing all the talent our students have and this year she brought them into the auditorium so they could perform. You should have received the link to view the performances from your child’s teachers and I hope that you enjoy them as much as I have. Thank you, Ms. Wawerna, for bringing this joy to our school family! 

I am wishing you all a safe, peaceful and happy winter break. I look forward to seeing everyone in 2022! 


Take care,
