Toys and Trading Cards Stay at Home
Please remember that students should not bring toys, trading cards (Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, etc) to school. We have a growing problem with toys being brought in backpacks that end up being lost, broken, or are creating a distraction in the classroom. Thank you in advance for your help with this.
Move-A-Thon FUN, Pledges, and PRIZES!
Move-a-thon Envelope Information
How do I collect pledges?
Students will be bringing home pledge envelopes that includes the number of laps they moved. Pledging is optional. However, if your student would like to participate, have your child ask parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors that you know if they would like to support their efforts for completed laps or a flat pledge to earn money for their school. DO NOT collect pledges from someone you do not know. It is not safe and is in no way encouraged by the school or the PTC.
Do I pay now?
Yes, please return all pledge envelopes to the school no later than Friday, October 20th, 2023 for processing.
Donations in lieu of pledges:
If someone would like to donate money, without pledging per lap, that money can be collected and deposited into the pledge envelope. Please make all checks payable to: Aumsville PTC .
Last year, you earned over $22,000!! This helped buy supplies for the Panther Store, Harvest party, Move-a-Thon prizes, Books for the vending machine, new recess and gym equipment, Assemblies, Field Trips, Field Day, Promotion parties, Math Night, Science Night, Class Field Trips and appreciation events for Teachers and Staff.
Conferences October 16th and 17th
We are excited that our school conferences are just around the corner, scheduled for October 16 & 17 . These conferences are a vital part of our commitment to your child's education, and we encourage every family to participate.
Parent/Teacher conferences provide an invaluable opportunity for us to connect with you, the parents and guardians, who play an integral role in your child's academic journey. It is a time to discuss your child's progress, celebrate their achievements, and address any concerns or challenges they may be facing.
Our goal is to work together as a team to ensure that every child receives the support and guidance they need to succeed. Your insights into your child's strengths and areas for improvement are invaluable to us. By connecting with every family, we can tailor our educational approach to meet the unique needs of each student. We understand that your time is precious, and we appreciate your dedication to your child's education.
Please watch for further communication from your child's teacher, via Parent Square, regarding scheduling and details. We are committed to making this process as convenient and informative as possible.
Thank you for being an essential part of our school community. Together, we can empower our students to reach their full potential.

It truly takes an “all hands on deck” mentality to run a school effectively. If you are interested in volunteering in your student’s class, chaperoning a field trip, or helping out behind the scenes, please begin the background check process found here or on the Cascade School District website on the “parents and students” page.
The background check process takes two-four weeks, is completely free, and lasts for two years. We recommend completing this early in the school year so as to avoid delay.
You no longer need to provide proof of COVID vaccination in order to volunteer.

Too often we underestimate the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn life around. If you would like to publically compliment someone at Aumsville Elementary or a community partner at an Aumsville Elementary event, you may do so here.
The compliment will show up in the next Panther Periodical!
Stephanie Moll: Thank you for the hours of time you volunteer to make FUN activities happen for Aumsville Elementary!
