Spring Forward


We are in our 2nd week of district assessments for our 1st-5th grade students. This time of year is a busy one as we forge ahead through the last quarter of the year. Our students will need to use extra focus for this time of year so that we can help them learn all they can.

Today, marks the 4th 9 weeks quarter of our 2nd semester. Students will be studying and preparing to master all of the AKS curriculum so that they can show their learning to be prepared for next year. It is very important that your child comes to school for the full day to be able to learn all they can for success. Thank you for checking the parent portal for grades, reviewing their homework with them and making sure that you keep open communication with their teachers.

Thank you for springing forward with us to ensure a smooth final semester of the 2018-2019 school year.

Do you have a 4 or 5 year old who is ready for kindergarten next year?

Please join us on March 27th at 6PM for our Kindergarten Transition Meeting. We will have all of our kindergarten teachers joining us that evening to show you and your new kindergartner what it is like to be a new student at our school. You will visit the classrooms, learn about our program and more information about kindergarten registration. You don't want to miss it!


I am very excited to announce that we are ready to bring back a new PTA board and membership drive for the 2019-2020 school year. We will be looking to get the names of anyone who is interested in leading in any capacity. Please send me an email with your interest by Friday so that we can begin the nominating process.

Friendly Reminders

  • All visitors will be asked at the door who they are and their reason for entering the building by our front desk clerk. Always have your ID ready to show every time. Vanessa Camacho-Chapparo is our new front desk clerk and is happy to join our team. Please be patient with our new district requirement that ensures a stronger and safe environment for our school community.
  • We will begin our morning announcements at 8:45 AM daily and ask that all car riders are in their seats ready to begin their day prior to 8:45 AM.
  • We are going to use Mypaymentsplus for all of our monetary transactions besides small fundraisers throughout the year. Please make sure that you sign up for this with the information below.
  • We are infusing social emotional learning with our PBIS discipline program. Every classroom will have morning meeting daily where they will greet one another, share something based on a focused topic, engage in an activity and end with a morning message. This 10 minute activity every day ties to our AKS, but also helps to start the day off positively. Ask your child about the amazing experience.
