Star Standards and Star Time

Our entire school has been working hard on the Star Standards, our new school-wide behavior expectations. This week, our students were rewarded with "Caught Being Good" coins for showing excellent behavior in all areas of the school!


Mrs. Rose won the Golden Spoon for best cafeteria behavior AND

Mrs. Park's class won the Flying Penguin award for best behavior in specials!


We are so proud of each and every one of our students showing amazing behavior!


Below are some of the things that we do during our Friday Star Time. The kids have loved learning the school song, learning our 7 Habits song and learning songs and dances during Movement.

Thank you for all of the help with the Fall Carnival

SILENT AUCTION ITEMS

Thank you to those who participated in our silent auction. We have a few items needing to be picked up for our silent auction. Please visit the front office to pick up your Silent Auction Items!

After School Clubs

Strings Ensemble

A few things have changed this year, be sure to read through the attachment, but the highlights are:

  • If you're late to pick up your child by 5-10 minutes more than once they'll be asked to leave the club for the year
  • Please make sure your child attends every club (with the exception of sickness) to get the best experience
  • They can borrow books from the school again this year - please make sure they only use pencil when writing in the books (no pens or markers).
  • Practice cards need to be signed by a parent for them to get music money. I don't care how many minutes they practice - only how many days of the week they practice.


The link to pay for the club this year is in the newsletter the principal sends each week, in case you didn't see it or get it, here it is again.

Drama Club

This Fall for Drama Club we are doing three short plays, one for each grade level 4th-6th. There are 15 spots available for our 4th grade play,15 spots available for our 5th grade play and 15 spots available for our 6th grade play. Everyone who signs up will have a role in the play. Once all the slots are full, we are not accepting anyone else, sorry. We will have our first meeting on September 13th and then meet every Tuesday, 3:30-4:30pm, until our performances in December (exact dates to be determined). Parents need to pick up their children right at 4:30. (Younger and non-participating siblings cannot stay.)


If you have any questions, please email Miss Thomas at ethomas@advantagearts.org.

Art Club

This fall, AAA will have 2 art clubs—one for Grades 1-3 and one for grades 4-6. Each club is limited to 21 students and will be evenly distributed amongst the grades on a first come first serve basis. Each art club will meet on alternate weeks thru December (exact dates to be determined). A schedule will be sent out once club meetings begin.


The first meeting for the Grades 4-6 Art Club will be on September 13th from 3:30-4:30.

The first meeting for the Grades 1-3 Art Club will be on September 20th from 3:30-4:30.


Students are asked to bring an 8.5 x 11 sketch book and pay a $20 materials fee the first meeting. (There is a limited amount of fee waivers available—so do not let that stop you from signing up!). We are also requiring that students miss no more than 2 meeting without a valid

excused absence. Please pick students up promptly at 4:30 and other siblings cannot stay during that hour. If you have any questions, email Ms. Parks at jparks@advantagearts.org.

Counselors Corner- Leader In Me

Starting in October, we will touch on all 7 habits to better understand each habit before continuing to learn about each individually. I am receiving great feedback as we have focused on Habit One, Be Proactive, that students are being proactive and excited for their continued progression.



Here is the link for the information slide show we had gone over during this presentation a few weeks ago.
