Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at the American Academy for Girls! In the elementary school, we have an excellent team of ladies who are experienced in education and pledge to hold each student accountable to high standards of academic achievement. This year, we are excited to use Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), with new textbooks and lab activities. We also care about each student’s social growth and will challenge all of our girls to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, effective communicators, and global citizens. We will offer various clubs and extracurricular activities again to foster these character traits.
For morning drop-off, please use the elementary gate in front of the school. Students should be at school by 7:20a.m. to prepare for the day. Classes start at 7:30a.m. Students who come after this time will be considered late. At the end of the day, Grade 2 and Grade 4 will be dismissed from the playground at 2:30p.m., while Grade 1 and Grade 3 will leave from their classrooms.
Our elementary Open House will be on Wednesday, September 28 from 2:45p.m. – 3:45p.m. You will be able to visit with the teachers, see your student’s classroom, and learn a little more about daily routines and classes.
Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on October 12th from 2:45p.m. – 4:45p.m. and on October 13th from 9:00a.m. – 2:00p.m. Teachers will be sending home appointment times for you to talk more specifically about your individual student’s academic progress and other matters then.
Let’s work together to make 2016-2017 your daughter’s best year yet at AAG. I wish each and every one of you a wonderful school year, full of great experiences. Please do not hesitate to contact me at the school with any questions or concerns at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at: 2563-9612 ext. 127.

Asst. Elementary Principal
