Dear Auburn Village School Community,
It is hard to believe that we are officially starting our 4th week of school. It seems like only yesterday that we opened our doors to begin a new school year. We celebrated our first Brave Rally for the year. The middle school listened to Student Council speeches given by the students that were running for an officer position. The speeches were cleverly put together and the public speaking abilities were evident. I think our 6th grade public speaking class is making a difference! Our elementary school reviewed our rules for cafeteria behavior. They were reminded to walk quietly in line, pick up after themselves, and above all, act respectfully to their peers and adults.
Our fantastic PTA is kicking off their Meadow Farms fundraiser. This fundraiser is one of their largest revenue contributors. In the past year, the PTA has purchased two 3D printers for our school, as well as, purchasing timing equipment that enabled our Cross Country Team to host two home meets this year! Please look for a white envelope of information that will be coming home with your child.
Our Kindergarten through Fifth grades will be implementing new report cards this year. These report cards will be competency based. This means that parents will be provided more information based upon their student’s progress on certain standards. This report card allows parents and students to understand more clearly what is expected at each grade level. With this understanding, parents are better able to guide and support their child helping him/her to be successful in a rigorous academic program. We will be holding a parent information session on October 25th. Please look for more information that will be coming home with your child. We will also be posting details on our website, social media, and Bloomz.
Lastly, our last fire inspection report required us to move our Lost and Found. With storage space at a premium at AVS, Lost and Found was relocated to under the benches in our back lobby, Our Recycling Club will look through the items every two weeks and return them to their owners. If a student’s article is not labeled, it will be donated. This is a change in practice from past years when we kept items for a year. Please label your child’s clothing.
Enjoy the cooler weather!
Lori and Michel
