Message from the Assistant Director and SPED Director, Shylah Poirier

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable break filled with lots of quality time with your families.  I am excited to see all of your students back in the building!  January is a great time to set goals and revisit ideas that need to be adjusted.  We only have a short 5 months left in this school year and every minute of every day counts! This is why it is so important for your student to be on time and in attendance each day. Please make sure to support your student in their daily attendance!

Thank you to everyone who donated to our new Community Food Pantry!  We had about 30 families stop by and get some wonderful and nutritious food over winter break.  Please continue to donate food to the pantry!  Some necessities include: Pastas, toiletries and cereals.  Also, if you are looking to get rid of a working fridge/freezer, please contact me!  I would love to have one in our pantry to help keep perishable food items fresh for families in need.

I am excited to look at the data from the first half of the year and compare it to the upcoming progress data that teachers will take in the months of January and February.  This data will help support us in setting our final goals to make a strong push into the end of this school year! Our school is doing great things with academics and the progress that we have been making so far is incredibly exciting!

As always, please make sure to have your student practice their math facts each night as well as read a minimum of 20 minutes.  These simple tasks will make such a big different in the long run.

Please remember that I am here for you and your student!  Don’t ever hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.  It is each of you that have chosen AAU to be the school of choice for your student and it is important for you to feel valued and heard through your child’s educational career.
