Letter from Cathey Goodgame – April 11, 2018

Dear ANCS Families and Friends,

I’m starting out today’s letter with a HUGE thank you Emily Howland and Anna Coan for making us feel loved and celebrated through the PTCA Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week the week before Spring Break. Emily organized the week and did much of the work to make it happen and Anna was right by her side to support in any way needed. The smoothies, lunch, pencil pouches, coffee/tea bar, raffle gifts, hearts and smiley faces in the yard, yoga and everything else made us feel fully appreciated. Thanks, Emily and Anna!

The next couple of weeks at the Middle Campus will be pretty normal as we get ready for Milestones and exhibitions. Unlike previous years, we aren’t starting Milestones immediately after Spring Break so we have some time to settle into being back before testing begins. We follow the APS schedule Milestones testing schedule with different grades testing on different days (see below). We ask that you not plan to check students out before 1:00pm on any testing day for their grade level.

Milestones Testing Schedule
8th grade (5 days): Wednesday, April 25 through Tuesday, May 1
7th grade (3 days): Monday, April 30 through Wednesday, May 2
6th grade (3 days): Wednesday, April 25 through Friday, April 27

Our APS Soccer teams will play in the first round of the playoffs tonight at Lakewood Stadium. The girls will take on King at 5:15 and the boys will play Young at 6:45. The next round, assuming that we win tonight, will be Saturday morning at 10:00 (girls) and 11:30 (boys) at Sutton Middle. There is no charge for admission to the playoff games prior to the championship and we would love to have a big blue cheering section. Go Wolves!

Wishing you well,

Cathey
