Student Council End of Year Project: Bathroom Beautification
We are so proud of the hard work and creativity of our 2021-2022 AmPark Student Council. Collaboratively and responsively, they created murals and messages to put into our 3rd floor student bathrooms in the hopes of both beautifying the space and encouraging their peers to treat those spaces with care and respect. Thank you to Esperanza, Ethan, Lena, David, Franci, Chelsea, and Eleanor for your hard work and leadership, and to our amazing Melissa Valerio for being their facilitator! AmPark is a better place because of you and you have left a very special mark here for ever after.
What a beautiful week of celebrations and spirit! Thank you for supporting your children in participating in the theme days. On Monday, we had our first in-person whole school sing in years to kick off Spirit Week. Hearing the children singing together was the perfect way to highlight our Find Your Voice theme. Thursday brought the entire community together for our first whole school event in several years. The Spring Sing lifted our voices and our spirits!
Sasha’s class has been sharing their Chick Watch 2022 with the entire school through their in-class cam on their chicken eggs. Four chicks hatched on air this week! The students have loved getting to visit and learning more about caring for baby animals.
A huge thank you to the Career Day Committee and the parent volunteers who took part in Wednesday’s Virtual Career Day. Hanade, Natasha and Meagan secured volunteers from a variety of different industries to teach our students about options for the future.
We celebrated Field Day as a school today and despite the heat, a great time was had by all! A huge thank you to our Field Day and Spirit Week Committees led by Caitlin, and to all of the parent volunteers.
We would also like to thank our amazing PA for bringing back the AmPark Olympics! We had a chance to reconnect with AmPark alums, play, and dance together.
Please be reminded that the school is closed on Monday in observance of Juneteenth. Our fifth graders will be moving up on Tuesday morning at 9:30 in the P.S./M.S. 95 school yard, followed by our Kindergarteners in the afternoon at 1 p.m.
Sending lots of love to AmPark family fathers and father figures for Father’s Day!
We look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming end-of-year events! Next week is Spirit Week and you may be hearing from your child’s teacher about supporting some of the Field Day events on Friday, June 17th.
