Meet Baby Peterson!
I would like to take a moment to introduce the newest addition to our family, Josephine Maureen Peterson. She was born on April 9th at 8:43pm weighing 8lbs 4oz 20.25 inches long. We are absolutely smitten with our baby girl. I will be out for the remainder of the 2018-2019 school year and look forward to seeing you all in the fall of 2019!

Included in this e-mail is a link to a SignUp Genius where you can sign up for a time slot to come to Bristol Elementary for a 20-30 minute session.
During this preview, students will work with one of our kindergarten teachers in classrooms while parents will have the opportunity to mingle in the library as well as meet Mr. Senti, school principal and Ms. Chapman, school nurse. In addition to this opportunity to meet and greet with one another, parents will be given an information card to complete on behalf of your child. Parents will also receive information about our annual home visits. This is a visit for your child to meet their classroom teacher as well as another Bristol staff member.
We so hope you are able to join us for 20-30 minutes on April 23rd.

Come and Watch Intelligent Lives on April 17th at 6:00 P.M.
From award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib comes INTELLIGENT LIVES, a catalyst to transform the label of intellectual disability from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility for the most systematically segregated people in America.
INTELLIGENT LIVES stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer, and Naomie – who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.
INTELLIGENT LIVES challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment, and intimate relationships.
Film length: 70 minutes

Please help us with traffic flow
Because of our location arrival and dismissal are challenging. There are a few things that can help:
- No Parking Zones: Please observe designated No Parking zone on W Cedar heading away from Bristol. Cars parked here slow traffic flow and create an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
- U-Turns: Please do not make U-Turns on Gray or in the intersection or Gray & Cedar during arrival or dismissal. This slows traffic flow and creates an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
- Drop & Go: Please refrain from parking and exiting your vehicle during arrival & dismissal times. If you must park please pull all the way down Gray or park on a neighboring street.
Little Statemen Store
The Ambrose PTO has gained permission to open an online Little Statesmen Store specializing in spirit wear for the youngest of children in the district (infants through preschool). The High School Parents Club graciously shared their designs with us so we could be the providers for little kids. Please help our PTO support the Ambrose Center by sharing this information. The store will be open for three weeks so timing is everything.

Happy April from the Cafeteria!
• April is Earth Month look for ways to reduce food waste in your cafeterias!
•It is estimated that 40% of our total food supply is thrown away or 63 million tons of food, once thrown away food will end up in landfills where it emits 124 million tons of greenhouse gases per year, the more waste we put in our landfills, the more harm to the planet.
