Dear Families -

  • We would like to thank ALL of the many adults who planned and/or attended our 31st annual Ann Arbor Open Conference. This year’s event included great conversations, new ideas to chew on, and affirmation that we are doing good things for students and teachers.

Check out this wonderful blog post by Nancy Flanagan, one of our key speakers:

  • Thanks also to Andrea Klooster, Gretchen Suhre, Neeraja Aravamudan, and Julie Roth, along with many many other parent voluteers for their dedication to the cast & crew of Honk Jr.! We are very excited about the upcoming performances this weekend. Come check out our talented kids and enjoy some fine musical theater.
  • Our musicians in the band performed at Bands In Review last Saturday night, and their performance was outstanding! Thanks to Carolyn Bybee and Melissa Overhiser for their continued support and leadership.
  • Next week, before Spring Break, we will be sending home print copies of placement forms for next fall. Please read the letter that will be attached carefully, and send us your parent input by May 1st. Staffing and grade level assignments will not be known until far later in the spring, but we need to collect and organize parent input so that we’ll be ready to go when those decisions are finalized.
  • We want to spotlight our beautiful bulletin board under the whale, across from the office. There are many teacher apples on the trees, each with a wish from an A2O staff member. Apples can be sweet, sour, tart, healthy, red, green, large, small, smooth on the outside, and rough on the inside. Our wishes can be described the same way: small (a box of Kleenex), large (a case of Kleenex), healthy (hand sanitizer), or green (recycled yogurt containers). If you’re able to help us out, feel free to ‘pick’ an apple and provide whatever is written on it. You may deliver it directly to the teacher or, if you prefer anonymity, bring the contribution to the office and we’ll get it to the proper person. As always, thanks for your help!
