Bear Den News

August 6, 2020

Dear Ayers Families,

As I mentioned on Monday in my welcome back letter, there will be a lot of information coming out in the upcoming weeks. My goal is to keep you all informed as much as possible. I know that each decision directly impacts students and their families. We are doing our best to minimize the impact, while also designing a safe and engaging learning environment for our students.


Please take a moment to complete each one of these items prior to Ayers Bears Day on August, 13th.


  1. Complete your Student Data Verification through the Aeries Homelink Parent Portal.

  2. If you are new to Ayers, join Konstella.

  3. Sign up for your Ayers Bears Walkthrough appointment

  4. Enter the PTA Dollar-A-Day Chromebook Raffle

  5. Complete the At-Home Technology Survey

  6. Opt in to School Messenger Texting

  7. Order your Ayers Bears Spirit Wear


We understand that not all families feel comfortable with coming onto campus for this event. Please contact our school office, if you would like to make an appointment after these times, to make other arrangements.


Remember that when you arrive on campus the following rules apply to both adults and children:

  • Physical distancing of 6ft is required

  • Must Wear Face Covering

  • The blacktop and playground areas are in use by Dianne Adair and are NOT open for play.


Warm regards,

Martha Thomas

Principal, Ayers Elementary School

Aeries Homelink Parent Portal

Data verification forms for all Ayers Bears will only be available through Aeries Homelink. You must create a Homelink account to access and complete data verification BEFORE Ayers Bears Day to receive your classroom placement.


If you registered for a Homelink account in the past - you are all set to login.

If you do not have a Homelink account, YOUR VERIFICATION CODES WERE MAILED HOME TODAY.


Follow the Data Confirmation Steps to complete your verification.


Please print and sign the verification of completion at the end of the Homelink process. This will be needed at Bears Day to receive classroom placement.

DOLLAR-A-DAY CHROMEBOOK RAFFLE

The PTA remains fully committted to bridging the financial gap between public funding and the true cost of the full educational experience we all want for our student at Ayers. Every single student benefits from the Ayers Dollar-A-Day Fund.


The 2020-2021 school year is starting off different than most but, Ayers PTA is still responsible for funding the following vital programs and staff for both present and future needs of our students!


The Ayers PTA spends approximately $180 each school year per student. In order to maintain and add to our current level of excellence we need your financial support so that all of our children will continue to receive a first-rate education at Ayers.


100% Participation is the Goal!


We know that ever family situation is different so the goal of the Ayers Dollar-A-Day Fund is to receive 100% participation regardless of the dollar amount. No amount is too small, and it will make a difference for our school.


Your $180 donation includes a PTA membership, 4 raffle tickets for a Lenova Chromebook Duet, and best of all knowing that your Tax-deductible donation allows you to feel NO other obligation for donations/fundraising for the rest of the school year!


Donate directly through Konstella BEFORE Ayers Bears Day and receive DOUBLE raffle tickets!

Technology Survey

We are looking to serve our students who are in need of a technology device and/or internet at home to continue Distance Learning. We are asking ALL families to fill out this form - one per family. If you have more than one student at Ayers, you will add their names at the end of the survey.
