    Welcome to all of our new and old friends!!! Summer seemed to have gone by so quickly; we can’t believe it is September already.  We are ready for our brand new school year and our eager students are excited to be here!

     

    #AJalltheway!

    This year marks the first year of our #AJalltheway Campaign! Our school family meets in the gym next Monday to welcome each other and share our vision for another great year!

    At AJS we:

    • Spread kindness!

    • We are always inclusive, never exclusive.

    • Lift each other up and never put each other down.

    We have a “Shout Out” board in the Main Hallway where teachers are celebrating great things they are seeing that reflect our #AJalltheway! We will recognize these students daily and then once a month feature one student on the Bulletin Board.

    In addition, our K-1 students will receive an #AJalltheway wristband to remind them that we are a school family. Our Grades 2-5 students will receive a #AJalltheway pencil to share the vision of AJS being a special place of caring.

     

    Open House

    A separate invitation was sent home through backpack mail.  Our Open House will be September 10th  from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.  If your child receives Academic Intervention Services (AIS) you will receive a separate letter and we will have a meeting from 5:30 pm in our Cafeteria. Our 4th and 5th-grade Orchestra/Band students will have a meeting from 7:15 – 7:30 pm in the Music Room.
