Sometimes simple is best and goes a long way. Today I just want to say thank you. I want to thank you for entrusting us with your children. AVA’s culture and climate are two extremely critical components that define who we are. Everyone at this school works hard to make sure students and parents feel safe at school and love coming to school. Today was another example of how we can make the learning environment fun. The day started with students being greeted at the entrance with music from our resident giraffes – this does not happen at just any school. Then, seeing the staff and students in costumes and watching parents enjoy as the students participated in the costume parade was exciting! I truly believed everyone will leave school with a positive memory that will last a long time. 

Thank you for choosing Aspen View Academy. Thank you for all you do to partner with us to make your child’s educational experience so successful!

Morning Carpool Reminders 

Morning carpool is from 7:45am – 8:10am

We are seeing an increase in the number of tardy students in the morning. As a reminder, the morning drop-off begins at 7:45am (5 minutes earlier than last year) and continues to 8:10am. If your child arrives in the building after 8:12am they will be marked tardy.  

We added the extra 5 minute drop-off window to accommodate the increase in student enrollment. We have, however, noticed very few cars arriving on the property between 7:45am and 7:55am. Also, we have observed quite a few cars arriving on AVA property after 8:10am meaning your child will be tardy. School officially begins at 8:15am so it is important to have kids in class and ready to go. Classes begin at 8:15am and having students arrive to class tardy is a distraction that can easily be avoided.

Thank you for making Aspen View Academy the best school!
