Anne Wien Newsletter - March 19, 2018

Welcome back to school, everyone! The snow that continued to fall over Spring Break sure didn't make it feel exactly like "spring" but we hope you all still had a wonderful week together as a family. With the sunshine and extra minutes of light we’re now getting each day, this is always one of my favorite times of year. Today is also a special one as it marks the first day of Fourth Quarter. Our students have a chance to make this quarter their very best of the year! Thank you for all of the support you are providing at home during these exciting days of spring!

Annual Awesome AWE Art Show next week!
Join us next Thursday, March 29, from 5:30-7:00 PM for an evening of art and refreshments. Stroll the hallway galleries filled with art from all 375 of our Anne Wien students. We’ll also have special art activities for the whole family so bring everyone!

District Science Fair this Week
After a wonderful School Science Fair during the week before Spring Break, we're excited to announce that 7 projects will be moving onto this week's District Science Fair being held at Pioneer Park. Congratulations to Megan Spencer, Toby Thies, Jaden Harms, Emily Campbell, Zayden Nerbonne, Jackson Simon, and Mrs. Reece's 1st Grade, whose class's project was selected to move onto district. All of these projects do need to be transported to Pioneer Park this Wednesday, and we're looking forward seeing our River Otter scientists share their work with the whole town!
Spirit Assembly
this Thursday!
We hold School Spirit Assemblies at the end of every quarter, so our 3rd Quarter Spirit Assembly will be held in the gym this Thursday, March 22, from 10:30-11:10am. We'll be recognizing our "AWEsome Otter" recipients and our "AWEsome Bus Riders," and will have some fun student performances, too. Go, Team Anne Wien!
Returning to Anne Wien
Next Year?

 We are already planning for next school year and would appreciate you letting us know if your child will be returning to Anne Wien. Please fill-out and return our Pre-Registration Forms by Friday, April 13. They are coming home with your child this week and are on BRIGHT PINK PAPER.
Thank you!
Our annual statewide testing for all 3rd-6th grade students in the state of Alaska will be held next month. Here at Anne Wien, our students will be testing during the week of April 16-20, so it will be VERY important for all student to be in attendance that week. Thank you for marking your calendars.
Here at Anne Wien, we'll also be holding our third and final round of "universal screening" for ALL students starting next week, to check our students' progress in Math, Reading, and Writing.
Up 2 Places!
Our Current Attendance Ranking
We've moved up in the rankings! As of this week, our Anne Wien students have been at school for 91.83% of this school year, and we just passed Salcha Elementary and Midnight Sun Elementary! Yes! Next, let's catch Boreal Sun Charter School! To get closer to our goal of a daily attendance rate of 95% we need to have no more than 20 students absent from our school each day. We can do this! Thank you for getting your children to school on time each and every day, Anne Wien families!
