First things first. A big salute to the fifth grade committee for a great movie night last Friday. They have been amazing in the quality of the events they’ve run and we just want to say well done.
The 5th grade committee will be showing Big Hero 6 on Friday, April 17th, their last fundraiser. The doors open at 6 and the movie will start at 6:30. Please come out and show your support. There will be plenty of food, treats and refreshments sold. The admission fee is $5 per family. Thank you so much to each and everyone that has supported us this year. This has been such an amazing year.

Let me encourage you to take five minutes right now and complete the survey. The DOE uses this information to plan future education policies, to help rate the the success of our school, and to determine what changes may be needed. It also looks at the percentage of surveys completed to measure parent involvement, so it is important that we demonstrate our interest in our children’s school.
Greetings Parents, Partners, and Administration of AmPark!
This month we had our first Café Day with our new Chef Partners from Restaurant North. They created a great Hubbard Squash soup with Popped Sorghum and served it in the cafeteria. The students really enjoyed it, and it was made without cream or oil.
AmPark parent Dean Parker is on a mission. He wants to make every child and parent at AmPark aware of hunger and its impact on kids in America. “Sixteen million children experience the sense of being hungry and they don’t need to,” said Dean, who heads the school’s service committee. “Every child can help make a difference.”
