The Amity Weekly Minute: August 8, 2021

Amity Elementary

What's New?

From the Desk of Mr. Drouhard

Dear Amity Families,

Our Amity Weekly Minute this week will be shorter than most, but don’t worry, the information will be flowing once we get students back into the building. For our families new to Amity Elementary, our Amity Weekly Minute acts as our building newsletter. You will see it arrive in your inbox on Sunday afternoon with information about upcoming events, pictures of our students in action, and articles about what happened the previous week. We are always striving to keep our families informed and connected!

If you missed our Welcome Back release on Thursday, August 5th, below you will find a link that will take you to that information. This release shared many of the details necessary to help get the year started.

Please tell your children that we are excited to welcome them back and to enjoy their last week of summer vacation!

Take Care,

Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year!

Last Thursday, Mr. Drouhard released a welcome letter featuring many of the key details you'll want to know before the start of the school year. This included Kindergarten info, school times, arrival/dismissal procedures, and much more! Click the link below to read the complete release:
