Hello Allenstown Elementary School Families,

I hope you had a fantastic summer and are as excited as I am for this upcoming school year! As the new school year approaches us, I wanted to inform you of some important information.

 

Competency Education: Our district has been moving towards competency based education. There are several, very helpful videos on our website that can give you a baseline for how it works. We will continue to provide information and support in this area.

Alma: We have a new Student Information system being used throughout the district. You will receive login information this week. Please do not stress because AES will have more information to follow to help your family transition into using this at our school.

Please note:

If you’re a parent that has multiple students in more than one SAU 53 school, then you will receive one introductory e-mail that will work across multiple schools, but will have to login to two separate URL’s in order to access a particular student.

For example, if a parent has one student at AES and one at PA, their login will work at both buildings, but will have to login to each aes.getalma.com and pa.getalma.com to see the respective students information and progress.

 

Kindergarten Orientation: If you have a new kindergarten student, please attend the orientation this Friday, August 24th from 9:00-10:30. There will be important information for your child as they become new students at Allenstown Elementary School!

 

First day of school is August 28th!: We begin at 8:10 and end at 2:30. Please remember that the car loop is very busy so it is important to drive with caution. The drop off/ pick up loop will have a morning person assisting with the drop off of your child. In the afternoons, please be mindful of other people and their time as they pick up their students. If you park to pick up your child, please do it in a timely manner.

 

New Staff at Allenstown Elementary School: Please welcome Kelly Beliveau, who was an AES interventionist last year and will now be a 2nd grade teacher! We are excited to have her on the 2nd grade team. We have a new music teacher, Michael Kenyon! He taught for several years at Strong Foundations and comes with a wonderful knowledge base of music. We also have two new intervention teachers, Carolyn Hughes and Collette Fortin. They will be a great addition to AES!

 

Upcoming Dates:

AES BQQ/Open House 9/13 @5:00 pm -7:00 pm

Picture Day 9/27

Here is the 2018-2019 school calendar.

 

We are looking forward to a great 2018-2019 school year! With Smiles, Ginelle Czerula Principal Allenstown Elementary School
