Hello AEA Families,
We have so many fun events planned this Fall! Just a few reminders as we finish up our first month of school! Please, stay in your vehicles during arrival and dismissal. This will help to ensure our students, families, and our staff stays safe. Students are welcome to purchase pizza anytime before Friday. We do our best to order a few extra slices however, we typically order near the exact amount. The order is placed Thursday afternoon and students will not be able to buy any pizza on Friday. We are nearing the end of Quarter 1 and report cards will not be sent home unless school fees are paid. All updated immunization forms need to be turned into Ms. Barker as soon as possible.
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have also included my contact information at the bottom of the page.

ROCKETS OF THE MONTH: SEPTEMBER
Boston is always a leader in class. She is a great friend to all and a hard worker. Boston has all of the ingredients of what makes an AEA Rocket. We are proud to have her not only as a student but as a great example of what friends do and are inside and out.
Mirabella has shown the O, C, and S traits. They have started to gain more confidence in themselves and it is showing in their work. Even coming out of their shell to answer questions and participate more in class. The grades they have show this.

ATTENDANCE OHIO LAW REQUIRES STUDENTS TO BE IN ATTENDANCE EACH DAY THAT SCHOOL IS IN SESSION. Regular school attendance by all students is important. Research shows that attendance is strong indicator of academic success. Therefore, all students are urged to make appointments or complete personal errands on school holidays or after school hours. Students who are excessively absent (18+) days, both EXCUSED AND UNEXCUSED may forfeit academic credit for individual classes per semester.
According to Ohio law (House Bill 410),
Habitual Truancy is defined in hours:
a. Absent 30 or more consecutive hours without a legitimate excuse.
b. Absent 42 or more consecutive hours in one month without a legitimate excuse.
c. Absent 72 or more consecutive hours in one year without a legitimate excuse.
Includes Excessive Absences:
a. Absent 38 or more hours in one school month with or without a legitimate excuse.
b. Absent 65 or more hours in one school year with or without a legitimate excuse.
Any students who demonstrate Habitual Truancy or Excessive Absences will be asked with their parent to participate in an absence intervention program.
If your child will be absent for any reason, please call the attendance line and leave a message
