Friday Memo 8-31-15
Happy Friday Andover Families and Staff!
Welcome Back! Our 2015-16 school year is off to a great start! We held an Opening Ceremony on Wednesday morning to raise the flag on a new year. Dr. Doyen (our new Superintendent), Mrs. Wilson (our new Assistant Principal and Director of Special Education) and Mrs. Jacobs (our new third grade teacher) were assisted by Mr. Miller and Mr. Gasper in the above picture. Our newest students led us in the Pledge of Allegiance and Mr. Piros and Mrs. Adanti sang The Star Spangled Banner. After Dr. Doyen and Mrs. Wilson addressed our students and staff, I shared a short story about an exclamation mark.
It’s a story about fitting in, standing out, and with the help of others, finding your way. Our Opening Ceremony ended with the song, We’re Going to be Friends by Jack Johnson.
Thanks to the hard work of our custodians (Steve, Greg and Diane) and our dedicated teacher staff, the building and grounds were in “tip-top” shape to begin the year. The students are enjoying their new teacher, their new rooms and work spaces as they settle into their daily routines.
Our school pictures are scheduled for Thursday September 10, 2015. We are hoping for a beautiful day so we can take them outside. This year’s first PTA meeting is scheduled for Tuesday September 8th at 7 PM in the library. Please mark your calendars for our two curriculum nights on September 23 and 24 from 6:00 until 7:30 PM. There will be more details in next week’s memo.
Finally, we are sending this memo through our School Messenger email service. Please let us know if you would like to update your email address or add additional recipients by contacting Rosemary at email@example.com.
We hope you have a great weekend, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday!
