Newsletter 03/20/2015

I hope you all have a wonderful and restful Spring Break.  The students, staff, and families of Awbrey Park are so caring.  This is a great time of year to think back about all the growth you have seen in your child.  They all have matured and learned so much.  They work so hard and are so fun to be around.

Our Believe Fundraiser will be starting right after Spring Break.  We only do the Jogathon and this fundraiser.  It raises money for field trips and student incentives.  You can support this fundraiser by doing any of the following:
1. Purchase items out of the catalog for you and your family.
2. Send emails to out-of-state family and friends using easy templates found at
3. Ask neighbors, co-workers, friends and others to purchase and show their support.
These gifts will get back in time for Mother Day’s present.  What a great opportunity to help out Awbrey Park and celebrate our families.

Congratulations to Charlotte Haker, Claire Smith, Carissa Boyce, and Kristen Gianforti who have all been nominated for the ACE Awards.  So many other staff and volunteers could have been nominated. You all do such great work and make such a difference in Awbrey Park!  Please join me in congratulating our little crew of nominees.

We did Open Mike today This is just an informal chance for students to get up and sing, dance, or tell a joke at lunch.  This is also a great opportunity to build a sense of community.  It was so much fun.  We will do these once a month for the rest of the year.

PTO Meeting will be on April 6 at 6:00.  Please come and join the fun.

Kindergarten Parent Night will be on April 9 from 6:30–7:30.  This is a meeting to let our incoming Kindergarten parents know what to expect as their kids get ready to start school next year.  If you know of any parents who have Kindergarteners for next year, please let them know about this meeting.  We will be contacting the parents that we already know are coming to Awbrey Park after Spring Break.

The first day of school of school after Spring Break is March 30.
