Dear AmPark Families,
Happy summer! It has been an absolute pleasure to serve as the school leaders for the AmPark community this past year. Thank you all for your tireless support of the children and the school. We wish you a safe and healthy summer with plenty of time for family and relaxation.
Angie and I will be available throughout the summer although the building will not be open on a daily basis. Please reach out via email should you need anything.
Supply lists will be posted for each grade to the school website this week. Letters from next year’s teachers and our welcome packet will be emailed to families by August 24th.
The Welcome Warm-Up event will take place on Tuesday, September 4th at 2:45 p.m. for Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and new AmPark families.
The first day of school will be Wednesday, September 5th. It will be a full day for grades 1-5 and a half day for Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten. More back to school information will be shared in the welcome packets.
Kelly and Bonnie
Dear AmPark Families,
District 11 City Councilman Andrew Cohen is letting us decide how to spend $1,000,000.00 in discretionary funding with Participatory Budgeting. Thanks to the efforts of some of AmPark's super-parents, Sofia Zuberbuhler and Jorge Yafar, AmPark Neighborhood School is on the ballot 2X! We are up for a safety expansion to our Betty Park and for technology upgrades with schools also located within District 11 (along with our neighbor PS 95!). Please take a few moments to vote (and possibly win) AmPark and other neighborhood community areas hundreds of thousands towards improvement projects. Anyone 11 years old and up who lives in District 11 can vote!
Thank you to those who took a moment to vote in person this morning! We will have another in-person, paper ballot vote here at AmPark on Friday from 2:00pm to 3:00pm. Additional parent volunteers are encouraged and welcome to support getting people in to vote!
