Notes and Updates

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a wonderful 3 day weekend. Thank you so much for coming to student-led conferences. It was a joy to watch everyone and the kids did a great!

Last week we finished our science unit by experimenting with butter and watching how matter changes by melting and freezing. We also finished up reading across genres by retelling different types of genres. In math students got back into learning about numbers and place value.

Don't forget to check out the unit letters on the drive by copying this link: tinyurl.com/skeane1g.

Scroll down to read about what we will be learning next week and important dates and information for next week.

Special Announcements

Writers Cafe

Sunday, May 8, at 8:50 - 9:30, 1G will host our annual Writers Cafe. Students will share poems they wrote during our poetry unit and have a special song for Moms. I hope all parents will be able to join us!

A-Z Countdown

Believe it or not, we are in the final 30 days of school! We will celebrate the end of school year with an A-Z countdown of the last 26 days of school. This will begin on Wednesday, May 4. Each day will be represented by a special activity for each letter of the alphabet. Some days do require some planning from home, so there is a copy attached to the e-mail for your convenience.

ASD Fine Arts Show

Starting May 1st, enjoy 19 days of beautiful student artwork.

Random selections from PreK4-IB art are on display in the ES main corridor and the HS Fine Arts area so you may take a quick glance at what’s happening in the art rooms at ASD.

The students are very proud of the work they have created and we hope you take a moment to explore our galleries.


Students brought home a Help the Earth Chart as an Earth Day Challenge on Sunday and are encouraged to fill out the chart over the coming weeks and bring them back to school by May 5th. Please encourage your child to participate in this challenge. Students who participate will be recognized as an Earth Hero!
