The Sky's the Limit!


I would like to wish every Anderson Student and their Families a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. Thank you for all you do every day to support your kids and help them be their best. I continue to be impressed by how involved and supportive each Anderson Family is with our school and most importantly your own child's learning. Keep it up! You will never regret spending extra time reading with or to your kids. You will never regret showing them how you used mathematics to help accomplish a task. And you will certainly never regret investing your time to be "fully present" with your kids. Ask them questions about their lives, and listen. Play games, and teach them how to both win and lose. This Thanksgiving, let's put down our phones, and enjoy the kids we have been blessed with.

It was great to see so many of you at Parent-Teacher Conferences. We had a great turn out and we were close to reaching our goal of 100% of families attend.

Salvation Army Toys for Kids Collection

The Salvation Army’s annual Jim Wheeler Toys for Kids program is once again in full swing. This program, which collects and distributes toys for the needy boys and girls of the Tri-City area, is celebrating its 36th year. The program has been named in honor of the late Jim Wheeler who was the creator and driver behind this effort.

Once again, we are asking for your support of this program for children at Christmas time. We are looking for new unwrapped toys and games and also will be accepting monetary contributions and gift cards to help make this Christmas a very special one. Click below for the flyer.
