Boston Market Dine Out Fundraiser

Don't forget...

Anderson families - We love to see students show up prepared and ready for the day each morning.

Due to the amount of tardies we are having most mornings at Anderson, we want to remind our Anderson families how important it is to have the students at school on time and ready for learning. Students lose valuable instruction time at the very beginning of the day and it can be disruptive to have so many students arriving late. Thank you so much for your help in getting the students to school in the mornings on time.

Please make sure you call our attendance phone line at (331) 228-3300 if your child will be absent or late. All absences and reasons for absence are needed to be recorded, and your help in getting us this information is appreciated.

Halloween Costume Parade and Classroom Parties


On Friday, Oct. 28th, (2:00-2:20 PM) Anderson will have a Costume Parade to celebrate all things fall and fun! If your child wants to wear a costume in our parade, they are welcome to bring a simple costume to school. Their teacher will give them time before the parade begins to change into the costume. Please keep all costumes simple enough that your child can put them on themselves. (Please no violent-themed costumes. No Blood/Guts... Remember we have younger students)

Parents/guardians, Grandparents are welcome to come to view the parade. The parade route will make its way outside to the back of the school. We will have cones set up marking the route.


Each classroom will celebrate all the hard work they have done since the start of school by having a party on Friday, Oct. 28th. (Approx: 2:20-2:50 PM). Each grade level and teacher may need parents helpers to plan, host, or simply help in the classroom for the party. See info from your child's teacher regarding their plans for the class party. We highly recommend that all students take their "normal" transportation home. This keeps our dismissal process smooth and safe for all kids.


  • Also, just a reminder, that all volunteers also need to bring a current driver's license or state ID in order to comply with the D303 Security Check before they enter the building.

Anderson Veterans Day Celebration

Anderson will be observing Veterans Day on Friday, November 11th. We invite our veterans to come to Anderson at 8:30 am to enjoy a school assembly and a small reception afterward with their families. We need your help! We would love to invite as many veterans as we can. Please complete this FORM if you have a veteran family member who can attend. We look forward to honoring their service.

Please fill out one form for each veteran attending. You can also call the main office at (331) 228-3300 to RSVP.

We know that not all the veterans in your family are able to attend our assembly. We would still like to give your child an opportunity to share about and honor the veterans they know. Please click HERE, print, and fill out the "Anderson Veteran of Honor" sheet. We will be proudly displaying these in our hallway and showcasing them at our assembly.

(Don't have a printer... no worries... we will be sending home copies with each student)
