This is an adult only event, ticket price includes – heavy appetizers, buffet style meal and non-alcoholic drinks. There will be a cash bar available.

We will have an awesome loaded silent auction which includes some of the following:

  • Teacher Experiences
  • Student Art Projects
  • Autographed Sports Memorabilia
  • Valentine’s Day Date Night Packages
  • Tickets to Denver Center for Performing Arts and Lone Tree Arts Center

As an added incentive, each family that purchases at least one ticket will receive 50% off one item at the Wolf Shack. This includes if you have already purchased a ticket. Ticket prices will increase on February 1st.

Announcements

Visitor parking is now on the west side of the building (the small lot past the PreK playground). If you are just stopping by quickly (early pick up/drop off, dropping something off for your student, etc), you are welcome to park your car along the curb in front of the school (where carpool takes place). Please do not park in the staff parking in front of the building as these are assigned parking spots. Thank you
Mark Your Calendars! 

The Middle School Musical Theater Elective will perform Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Jr. on Wednesday, February 12 at 7:00 PM in the AVA gym. There are no tickets or admission fee necessary to see the show, just show up! Come support our students and their endeavors in the performing arts! Hope to see you there!
Pay to Dress of Choice January 29th - Milestones for Maxwell 

Pay to Dress of Choice will be on January 29th. The charity randomly chosen and approved by the Board is called Milestones for Maxwell. Funds raised will help research and support advanced gene therapy for the neurological disease, SLC6A1. Read more here. You can participate in the pay to dress of choice for $1 minimum. 
Papa John’s Spirit Night January 30th  

Papa John’s and Aspen View Academy PTO have teamed up to help raise money. 20% of your order will be donated to AVA! The flyer will come home in future Thursday folders and must be turned in with order. You can also purchase Papa John’s gift cards in the Wolf Shack. 
We are short photos for yearbook! 

We are still looking for photos. Please send pics to photos@aspenviewacademy.org .
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!
