Fall Festival

Our Fall Carnival is coming up—QUICK!

It will be October 28th from 4:30-7:00. We have so many things planned and can not WAIT!

Each grade is in charge of 2 booths. We will have music, inflatable jumps, food for purchase, balloon animals, and more.

Punch cards will go on pre-sale October 25th (more information coming soon).

WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you are available to volunteer please let your student’s teacher know or respond to future emails about volunteering for this activity. We will need volunteers to help run and supervise activities and are also needing prizes donated. If you are interested in sponsoring any part of our carnival, there are plenty of opportunities for that as well.

We look forward to hearing from you and are so excited to celebrate with all of our Advantage Arts Academy friends and families!


WE WILL BE CHECKING OUT BOOKS THE WEEK OF OCT 11th-15th! Then we will also be checking out books October 25th-29th. We turn in and check out books the 2nd and 4th week of the month. Thank you all so much for your patience.

Birthday Table

Birthday table will be held this week, Wednesday October 13th. We will be celebrating the July and October Birthdays. Students with Birthdays in July or October will be able to go to the birthday table this Wednesday and get a treat.

Get Involved

Our Goal is to have every family volunteer 10 hours this year and participate in helping with some of our planned events!

We are looking for volunteers with tiling experience that could help install a tile mural that the students worked on last year. The mural will be indoors and is about 8'x5'. If you or someone you know could help with the tools and installation please contact the art teacher, Mrs. Redd at

Our First Event is Advantage Arts Academy's Fall Carnival on October 28th. Each Grade Level will be reaching out to parents for candy and prize donations.

After School Clubs


There WILL NOT BE Art Club on Wednesday, October 13th! If you have not paid your students $40 Art Club fee, please be sure to stop in the front office to pay it.

Drama Club

This week we will be starting the first week of play practice for drama club for the students that made it for a kid version of A Christmas Carol. The list for the students that make it into the play was posted by October 8th. Those students will have practice each Tuesday leading up to the performance in December.

Center Stage

Kindergarten Paints Fall Trees

In kindergarten we learn about the different seasons and the patterns that we can see with the change of the season. Now that it's Fall, we noticed that the weather is a little colder and the leaves on the trees are changing colors and falling down. We made our own Fall trees by using a q-tip to make colorful dots for our leaves.

2nd Grade Rainforests

In second grade we have been learning about different habitats. We made our own little model of a rainforest habitat with at least four animals that we can find in the rainforest. These turned out so cute and it was fun to learn how to make our paper into something 3D.
