Once again September was a busy month! Picture days, Grandparent’s Day, Scholastic Book Fair...wow what a month! Many thanks to Toby Smitt for taking the lead once again this year with the book fair. Without the help of Toby and Mary Speidel, I’m not sure we would be able to offer this event to our families. I don’t have the final amount of sales, but it appears that we did about the same as last year with just over $2,000.00 in books sold. Our school will now get a percentage of that total to spend on classroom supplies, books, and equipment. “Thank-you” for supporting our efforts and a HUGE “Thank-you” for all of the books you purchased for our school library. The staff was overwhelmed by your generosity.
I also want to thank the “Do-Day Ladies” forthe check I received from them in the amount of $300.00 for the academy. We were in need of a large locking storage cabinet which we now have. We can’t thank-you enough for your generous donation.
One final update, our current registration is at 83 students which is about 9 students higher than we ended with in May. And of those 83 students, 26 of them utilize aftercare hours with approximately 15 staying until 2:30 and 11 staying until 5:30. I am hopeful that we will continue to grow throughout theschool year and into the future.
