Dear Families of the 5-6 Academy for Excellence,

 I hope you will agree that we are off to a great start to the new school year. The routines and schedules are falling into place smoothly and upon observation, students look very happy, comfortable and confident in their classes.

 There are many clubs available for students to participate in after school. For a full listing, please see our homepage.  Also, if you still need to sign up for Home Access, there is information about this on the website too. 

 There are many things coming up on the calendar, so please communicate with your child and refer to the district calendar for important dates, such as Halloween events, PTA meetings, parent/teacher conferences, and days off.

 Your continued support as a partner in your child’s education is critical to their success this year. It is your interest in their homework, your kind words when they feel frustrated, and your ongoing communication with teachers that make a difference. 

Let’s keep the positive energy together,

 Anne Chen
