From Principal Kelly:
Spring has sprung and new beginnings are all around us. If you have been offered a Kindergarten seat at AmPark for the 2019-2020 school year pre-registration will take place the week of April 29th. Please call the main office to schedule an appointment with Damaris. Please spread the word for families that you know within the community.
April 2nd and 3rd bring the ELA State Tests for our 3rd - 5th graders. The test will begin promptly at 9 a.m. Third grade teacher Casey Burns shared tips to “Destress the Test!” at our last PA meeting. The powerpoint will be posted on our website, but the most essential points for students to remember are:
Come on out and join in the fun at the annual Spring Auction on April 5th. It is a wonderful community event and opportunity to make new friend with other family members. We hope to see you there!

Hello AmPark Families,
We'd like to thank all of our volunteers for their hard work at the Book Fair, AmPark's Got Talent, with the WITS Labs and those who have been selling Auction Tickets and Raffle tickets. Thank you to all of the parents that attended these events and the amazingly talented staff, students and their families that performed at AmPark's Got Talent on the 22nd. Our biggest fundraiser is just 4 days away and we have amazing donations to be bid on from class art projects to gift cards, experiences (from date night to family outings) and Hamilton tickets! We hope to see you all there. Please volunteer your time if you can!

We have so many other amazing items up for bid. Here’s just a sample (see full list of donors attached):
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!!
All your generous donations have created some Incredible class themed BASKETS will be up for bid AND beautiful and meaningful CLASS ART PROJECTS! You do not want to miss the opportunity to bring home a beautiful keepsake-work of art from your child's class. You cannot purchase these art projects anywhere else.
This year we have some beautiful works of art created with Ina by Jennifer's class. They are truly beautiful cityscape prints. A picture by one or more of these student artists would be a wonderful addition to any home decor.
You can also purchase RAFFLE TICKETS for the chance for your kid(s) to win a lunch and fun activity with their favorite teacher or staff member. See attached flyer. Raffle Tickets are also for sale in the office. Raffles will be picked at the Auction, but you do not need to attend to win.
With the price of admission, you will be treated to delicious finger foods, an open bar, and a kid-free evening of fun and bidding. Childcare is free for AmPark students.
This is our largest fundraiser of the year. All money raised goes to make all our kids' educational experiences here at AmPark better ones. In order to make it work, we need help from all families.
You can also volunteer at the Spring Auction. If you choose, your ticket for the Auction will be free. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080445aead2fa7fc1-spring
Looking forward to seeing you there! Help us make this the best Spring Auction ever! If you have any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or check us out on Facebook or amparkpa.org.
