Hello Ames Parents-

I hope everyone is going to make the best of this beautiful weekend before we officially head back to school on Wednesday for students in grade 1 to 5, and on Thursday for Kindergartners. I am looking forward to seeing everyone next week :)

I am going to be using "Class Messenger" this school year as a quick and easy method of communicating with parents on important information I need to share with you in a timely manner.

I created a Parent Room for us called “Ames Elementary Parents”. Please check your email for instructions, in both English and Spanish, on how to join.

Open communication is the key to our successful partnership in your child's education this school year.

Please check it out and sign up!

Have a great weekend!

Todd A. Gierman, Principal
A.F. Ames Elementary School
