We'd like to take a moment to welcome four new staff members to the Amanda Moore Elementary School family...each one is a valuable and integral part of our team!
Count Day is Wednesday, October 3rd!!!
Attendance on count day is essentially important. School funding is based solely on attendance on two specific days of the school year. We desperately need every student who attends Amanda Moore Elementary School to be in attendance on Wednesday, October 3rd. Thank you in advance for your support.

Halloween Parade and Parties
Halloween is a favorite day for many of our students. The opportunity for students to dress up and pretend during school is nearly extinct in today's high stakes rigorous education world. Our traditional Halloween parade is always great. For those of you who are new to Amanda Moore, we create a path through the gym with chairs which allows for every seat in the house to be front row. All the students will parade through the building and gym and then back to their classes for an afternoon of games and treats. Our parade will begin at 12:30 p.m. sharp. Parents and family are welcome to come to the gym to select their parade viewing spot as early as 12:20 p.m.
We ask that students' costumes be easy to change into. We also ask that the costumes be sent to school in a bag and not worn to school. Due to the wide range of student ages, we ask that students select non-violent, non-frightening costumes for the school parade and party. Costumes which have weapons or look like weapons should be left at home.
Please remember that this is also a PLC Day...we will dismiss at 1:55 p.m.

When to Keep Your Child At Home
Green School Environmental Tip
Clean up after your pet
Most of us pick up after our pets to be a good neighbor and keep our yard clean. But, there’s another important reason. Pet waste contains bacteria that is harmful to us and our water. Leaving it on the sidewalk or lawn means harmful bacteria will be transported into the storm drains and then into our lakes and streams. So what can you do to help? Simple. Whether on a walk or in your yard, dispose of your pet’s waste promptly in the toilet or trash.
