Annual Holiday Gift for Teachers & Staff and Giving Tree
(posted by afleming; 11/30/16)
We want to continue the tradition and give cash gifts for the teachers and staff of American Academy in lieu of individual gifts. This is a great way to do something extra special during the holiday season for those people who are so important in our children’s education and lives.
This program is very popular with the teachers and parents. It is simple to participate:
• Fill out the Holiday Gift Form with your Family Name and the amount of money for each teacher/staff next to the individual’s name.
• Enter the total amount of money enclosed in the envelope on the last page of the Holiday Fund Form.
• Return the form and money in a sealed envelope with “Holiday Gift c/o Christi Dexter” written on the envelope.
• Please send in CASH ONLY! If a check is sent in it will be returned home.
The deadline for turning in the form and money is Friday, December 9, 2016.
Crazy Hat Day - Monday, December 12th
(posted by afleming; 12/01/16)
A few years back, we created a little incentive to help get our kids get in the giving spirit and we want to continue this fun tradition. On Monday, December 12th, we will be having a Crazy Hat Day. If a student donates $1 to the Giving Tree he/she will be allowed to wear a crazy hat to school that day. Donations will be collected by K-8 homeroom teachers that Monday morning.
Proceeds from the Giving Tree will be used to help buy gift cards for families at our school that are on the free or reduced lunch program.

Thanks to all who have already signed up to volunteer as part of the Spring Fundraiser planning committee!! We will be holding a meeting in early November to discuss the various options for this year’s Spring Fundraiser, but we still need a chairperson(s). This is a great job for a group of friends to divide and conquer and have a whole lot of fun along the way. If you are interested in assisting, please sign up using the link below.
