Notes from Mr. Kessler

Dear Anthony Families,

We enjoyed another great week here at Anthony! Students enjoyed various fall activities and were excited about fall parties.

This year, Mrs. Smith, our music teacher, is putting together a virtual slide show in order to honor our Veterans. If you have a picture of your favorite Veteran, a picture with your Veteran, if you are a Veteran and have a selfie, of if you have any picture of a family member that is a Veteran and would be willing to share it, please send it to Mrs. Smith at Include their name and the name of the student(s) they are related to here at Anthony. Please do not send hard copies of photos. Please email all photos by Monday, November 9th.

Next month, we will start conducting our school clubs. Because of Covid 19 safety restrictions, we are starting with 10 students per club. We hope to increase this number in January, but it will be determined by the pandemic status at that time. Club sponsors will be sending home information regarding the requirements and eligibility for after school clubs sometime over the next couple of weeks. See our activities website for details:

Finally, we at Anthony Elementary believe we have a caring, giving school community. We think that it is important to give recognition to our students and staff who volunteer everyday improving and making our community proud. We are participating in the President's Volunteer Service Award program. Please see our community service website for more information:
