The Amity Weekly Minute: May 19, 2024

What's New?

From the Desk of Mr. Drouhard

Amity Families,

The journey of school is a long one, but also seems to end in the blink of an eye. Yesterday, our seniors received their diploma from Deer Park High School and earned the title of graduates. Our 6th graders will be leaving us on Thursday to head over to the Junior High to fill their spots. Earlier this week, we welcomed in our next class of Deer Park students by hosting our kindergarten screeners at Amity. The class of 2037 is already poised to take the class of 2024’s place! One journey ends, and others begin. I’m sure our 2024 parents would have plenty of advice for the class of 2037’s parents. The most common one would be to enjoy the moments along the way because they will be gone before you know it.

I am so proud of the efforts of our students this year and wish them the best of luck on the rest of their journey! They will continue to do great things!

Please have a safe and restful summer!

Take Care,
