Letter from Lara Zelski – May 8, 2019

Dear ANCS Family and Friends,

We are right in the middle of our Milestones administration, which is a very long window that includes makeup days. I appreciate your cooperation and understanding that there are no visitors in the building while students are testing. Testing is a change in routine for all of us!

As soon as testing is over, we will jump right into focusing on our fifth guiding principle, we celebrate our individual and collective successes. Portfolio shares begin on the 16th (look for more information from your child’s teachers), field day is on the 20th and the fifth grade celebration is on the evening of the 23rd. You will receive more information about all of these, but if you would like to volunteer for field day, please contact Coach Hall. We need all the volunteers we can get.

Speaking of volunteering, thanks to Kari Lovell, we were lucky enough to be awarded a Comcast Cares Day at the elementary campus for this Saturday. There is additional information in the courier, but if you are interested in helping, we would love to have you. The morning begins at 8:00 am and breakfast will be provided. You will be joining folks from Comcast to do some cleanup of our grounds. What a great opportunity for our school.

I want to thank our PTCA for sponsoring our annual Run With The Wolves this past Saturday. I would like to specifically thank Thinh Nguyen for coming to morning meetings and drumming up excitement for the big run.Finally, thanks to everyone who came out to support the event, whether you ran or not. We love when our school family comes together. It was a beautiful morning and a lot of fun!

Finally, don’t forget that the last PTCA meeting of the year will be on Tuesday, May 14 at 6:30 at the Elementary Campus. What better way to wrap up the school year than with some family fun and great food! We’ll wrap up the year, approve 2019-2020 PTCA Executive Committee slate, and there will also be a special performance by the ANCS Chorus! Dinner is buffet style prepared by Chef Bradley, and just $8 per person. It must be pre-ordered and that link can be found here.

Have a wonderful remainder of your week!

Lara
