The Sky's the Limit!

Let’s run together while staying apart!!

Join us for the Anderson Elementary 1 mile run challenge!

On Friday, May 22 (our last day of school) we are going to celebrate finishing the school year in a special way to unite us all, while maintaining all social distancing expectations! We are going to have a virtual 1-mile run! That means we are all going to plan to run a mile in our own safe space (neighborhood, bike path, etc.) on our own

convenient time.

Also in the works...Anderson Virtual Field Day!

Friday, May 22nd, 2020!

Stay tuned for more details from our PE teachers!

Never run a mile before or don’t like running? NO WORRIES! Each week, your family will get a training plan to help you build up your endurance for the big day! We will also be designing race bibs for you to print out (or replicate at home) and wear to show your Anderson pride! WILD FOX RUN CLUB members will have a special bib design for them to show off their dedication to fitness!

While we will encourage you and your family to challenge yourself along the way and go for the run, this is not a required event! You also have the option to walk, bike, scooter or move however suits you!

We are asking that you have a good time while complying with the stay at home order and not gather with other families to complete this activity. We understand in order to complete this task responsibly, an adult should accompany the child(ren). Therefore, the run can be done any time of day on Friday, Saturday or Sunday (May 22-24) that best fits for your schedule.

All Students Must Register for 2020-2021 - Don't Delay!

Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 has moved to an online format that will open on April 27. In years past, parents completed the necessary paperwork in paper format. This year, all acknowledgments and authorizations are contained in a single electronic, online registration form that will be easily accessible from most electronic devices (computer, Chromebook, and Smartphones).

Beginning April 27, parents can sign into the Returning Student Online Registration form using their Home Access Center (HAC) credentials, select individual students, and complete their registration. The form will be located in the Parents/Community menu of the District website.

Registration fees for elementary and middle school will be available in Pushcoin beginning April 27, and billed to reflect the early bird discount of $10.00 if paid by May 22. High School fees will be available in June. For families who may qualify for a fee waiver, and are not directly certified by the state, a 2020-2021 district fee waiver application will be available on the District 303 website in July, accessible from the Parent/Community menu.

Social and Emotional Learning for our students. Information from D303.

Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. (The President and Fellows of Harvard College, 2020). This weeks SEL lesson includes strategies supportive of successfully completing assignments or tasks. One such strategy is Ready-Do-Done, a process children and adults can use to plan through the completion of tasks that may appear overwhelming. This weeks competency is:

  • Responsible decision-making: The ability to make constructive and respectful choices about personal behavior and social interactions based on consideration of ethical standards, safety concerns, social norms, the realistic evaluation of consequences of various actions, and the well-being of self and others.

We are asking students to identify and use strategies to manage emotions. Video clips and text is embedded to foster conversation. The challenges and uncertainty facing families and children are impactful on overall mental health and well being. We are hopeful the resources shared will be a support to parents/guardians and children. If you have any questions on the information provided or are seeking additional support for yourself or child, please contact Patti Palagi, Director Instructional Interventions ( or 331-228-6457).
