On Thursday, December 21, students in grades kindergarten through eight, who are registered to attend, will enjoy a Christmas movie in the Main Street Cinema. Below you will find helpful instructions for the day.
All students should report to school at their usual times.
Students remaining in school must wear their uniforms.
Children attending the trip may wear their gym clothes.
We will eat lunch upon our return.
Parents who will be attending the trip should arrive at the Academy by 9:00 a.m.
Buses will leave the Academy between 9:15 and 9:30 a.m.
Students should be returning to school by 1:30 p.m.
Students will be dismissed at their regular times.
If a parent accompanies a child the student may be signed out upon returning.
We hope everyone has a wonderful time enjoying the movie and our feeling of togetherness this Christmas season.
As an additional follow-up to the social media workshop that you attended in late September, the Academy purchased a license to post on our website seven short videos designed to help you as parents help your children to navigate this new world that has opened up to them via the Internet. This video series covers a wide range of topics in the broad area of digital citizenship. Each video is about ten minutes in length and offers real life experiences and valuable advice on topics including digital footprints, digital literacy, health and safety on line, digital commerce, and cyber bullying. Each video also contains a Spanish translation. We are exploring additional resources to use with the children while they are in school, and trust that these videos give you more information and suggestions about how you can complement their digital education while they are at home with you. I hope that you find them as interesting and valuable as I have.
