Elementary Principal Letter

Dear ANCS Elementary Families,

We are so enjoying having you all in the building so you can walk  your student to his/her classroom. We appreciate that you are getting to school a little earlier than usual so you have time to see your child’s work and learning space while allowing teachers to get started with the day right at 8:00. We all look forward to more times that you can come back into the building to celebrate student learning! 

Just a reminder that we still have some classes left this week. Here is the schedule for Thursday and Friday.

  • Thursday, March 17th – Sattler/Berney, Kellum/Maland, Lawrence/Smith, Taylor/Smith
  • Friday, March 18th – Walbert/Denson, Armstead/Godicheau, Love/Coyne

This week is the last week for our spring parent-teacher conferences. We hope that you found your conference time informative and productive. We recognize that 30 minutes isn’t always enough time to discuss everything, but we believe that having time to talk over the conference guide and set goals together is an important part of developing a partnership that supports student growth and learning. Thank you for taking the time to meet with your child’s teachers and remember that if you ever have questions or concerns, you are free to contact them anytime. If you have not set a date for your conference, please take care of that as soon as you are able. 

Now that we have an extra hour of daylight each evening, it can be tempting to let go of some of the daily routines you have set in your house. We know that adjusting to Daylight Saving Time can be challenging, but we encourage you to continue or even tighten up on bedtime and morning routines. With only 10 weeks of school left of this school year, we want to make every minute of it count. Having students come to school well rested and ready for the day of learning is a huge support and benefits us all. 

I hope you have a wonderful remainder of your week. As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. 

Wishing you well,
