From the Desk of Mr. Drouhard

Dear Amity Families,

It was great seeing everyone at our STEAM Night on Thursday! STEAM night and Harvest night are two of my favorite nights of the year. Both bring together our students, teachers, and parents to celebrate a night of learning. It doesn’t get any better than that! If you couldn’t make it this year, make sure you mark your calendars for the 24-25 school year!

Take Care,
Josh

A Message from the Principal

Hello Deer Park Families! 

DP Nation had a fantastic week with various achievements. Lucy Heringer emerged as the winner in the bowling sections, scoring an impressive 515 overall and a remarkable 227 in a single game. She will be representing The Cats at the districts in Dayton on Tuesday, February 20th. Jon Mil also performed well, securing 9th place in the sectionals. He will represent The Cats in Dayton for the districts on Wednesday, February 21st. We wish both of them the best of luck in their upcoming competitions.

In the winter guard competition, our junior high team secured 2nd place, while our high school team secured 3rd place over the weekend. Congratulations to both teams for their outstanding performances.

Lastly, the junior high students had a memorable night at the dance. We would like to express our gratitude to Mr. Hills and everyone involved in organizing the event. Please see the attached photos to witness the fun-filled evening.

No School- February 19th

Just a reminder that there will be no school on Monday, February 19th in observance of President’s Day.


Conference Information

Parent-teacher conferences serve as a crucial platform for open communication and collaboration between parents and teachers. These conferences provide an opportunity for parents to discuss their child's progress, strengths, and areas for improvement with their teachers. Teachers, on the other hand, can gain valuable insights into a student's home environment, learning style, and any challenges they may be facing. This exchange of information allows both parties to work together in the best interest of the child's education. Parent-teacher conferences also foster a sense of partnership and trust, as parents feel more involved and informed about their child's academic journey. Ultimately, these conferences play a vital role in enhancing student success and building a strong school-home relationship. We hope to see you on February 29 or March 1. Please click on the link to schedule a visit.

From the Desk of Mr. Drouhard

Dear Amity Families,

This week we will celebrate Kindness Week at Amity! While we strive to promote kind behaviors daily, it is important to have a stand alone week to focus on the ideal way to treat one another. The week of Valentine's Day was chosen due to showing how much we love one another. Kindness week will have a spirit week for students to participate in. Our teachers have daily activities they can do with their class to promote kindness. These include books with discussion questions, stand alone activities, and even a school wide bulletin board of filling others buckets put on by our student council.

A quick reminder that STEAM Night is on Thursday this week. Please plan to arrive at 6:00 p.m. as we will have 1 hour to get through 14 different experiments. We will open doors at the main entrance and also the recess door for access on both sides of the building!

Kindly,
Josh
