End of Year Celebration
We will be celebrating the end of the year with a picnic and awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 22nd. Come join us for a fun afternoon celebrating all of our wonderful students! We will meet on the front lawn immediately following recess (around 11:00) until 11:30. Immediately following lunch we will begin our award ceremony where each student will be recognized for their hard work this year! We expect this to last no later than 12:30.
Please send your child to school with a water bottle, sunscreen, running shoes, and appropriate athletic bottoms. We are looking forward to a fun day!
Summer Review Packet
A summer review packet has been uploaded to this web page. Please feel free to download the document and print this for your student. The packet provides a daily review of math and literacy skills for students to practice over the summer! It is an excellent way to keep their minds fresh for next year!
With the end of third trimester quickly approaching, we are working on planning our final Rebel Bucks parties. If you would like to volunteer to help or donate items please follow this link:

Firefighter Appreciation Day and Field Day
American Academy will be celebrating Firefighter Appreciation Day in conjunction with elementary field day this year on Thursday, May 23rd. Our field day t-shirts are a special edition shirt designed by Chad Riggs to show our support for those who serve us through the fire departments. Our PE teachers have worked to incorporate firefighter training stations into their field day rotations. We will also be hosting a “Fill the Boot” campaign with an American Academy twist. Our campaign will be “Fill the Boot with Notes of Kindness”. We will also be providing lunch to the active and retired firefighters who are able to stop by the campus.
We would be forever grateful to those who could assist in donating refreshments and/or desserts for our honored Firefighters:
It’s not too late to RSVP for the Firefighter Appreciation Day Lunch! If you would like to sign an active or retired Firefighter up to attend our Appreciation Day, please RSVP on the link below:
Ms. Matthews, our incredible elementary PE teacher, has several volunteer opportunities still available for field day and would be forever grateful to those who could assist. Volunteers will be provided lunch! Please click on the links below to sign up.
Like last year, this years field day will be an all day event for grades 1-5. Your student(s) can expect to find some familiar stations like last years face painting and temporary colored hair spray paint, as well as some new stations like STEM. Since we will be outside for most of the day, please make sure to send your student(s) to school wearing sunscreen and with a water bottle. Other highlights include a water station, field game station and firefighter station. If you have specific questions regarding any events please contact Ms. Matthews email@example.comLike last year if you are not volunteering we ask that you please stay behind the flagged rope to ensure all students can find enjoyment during Field Day.
