Hello AmPark Family,
Just a few announcements on this summery Friday afternoon, with wishes that you all are staying cool while enjoying some family time. We've had outreach from a few of you asking about when to expect details of the school year ahead. We ask you to please all be on the lookout for our summer mailings that will come your way the week of August 23rd. Also the week of the 23rd, we will be holding another virtual Town Hall/Coffee Chat to meet with you and speak to questions you may have as well as to share any news about the upcoming year. The details of the Town Hall will be posted, along with a Zoom link in next week's Owl Blog.
We are excited to announce that we will hold our in-person AmPark Meet & Greet on September 2nd from 1:30pm-2:30pm. During the Meet & Greet, students and families will be welcome to come into the building and meet their teachers as well as to get a preview of their classrooms. During this event, all social distancing and PPE protocol will be followed to ensure the safety of all. We look forward to it and hope to see you there!
After-School + Childcare Needs = Roads to Success
As we work towards bringing in Roads to Success in the fall we are asking families to please tell us your childcare hopes and needs. Your feedback will help us plan into how to best support our families and students at AmPark.
