School picture retakes are this Wednesday, September 26, from 9:00 a.m. until noon in the Schoedinger Theatre lobby. Students in our new 3-year-old Explorers classroom will have their photos taken from 8:30 a.m. until approximately 9:00. After that, anyone who wants retakes just needs to bring their original picture packet with them to the theatre lobby.
Also, we will end our school day this Friday with a Fall Pep Rally. All students and faculty/staff are encouraged to wear spiritwear that day. If an item is not maroon and/or gray or have an Academy logo on it, it should comply with our dress code.
Please remember as well that this upcoming Monday, October 1, is our Fall Holiday. This means that our school will be closed, and your children will be able to enjoy a long weekend.
And finally, Parent-Teacher Conferences are coming up near the end of October, and we want to make you aware of a few changes we have made to offer you more convenient times:
- We have opened up Monday, October 22, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. as a possible time slot for parents of all divisions.
- On Thursday, October 25, times from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m. are available for the Lower School and Middle School.
- In a change from the school calendar, Upper School will be releasing students at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 25, to begin conferences that will last until 8:30 p.m. We expect that many upper-schoolers will remain on campus for athletic events and other extracurricular activities, so we plan to still provide them with lunch and places to gather.
- And as previously scheduled for Friday, October 26, there will be no school for students. All divisions will be hosting conferences from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. that day.
- You will be hearing soon from your divisional offices about how to register for conferences.
Thank you for your kind attention to all of this.
