The Amity Weekly Minute: May 7, 2023

What's New?

From the Desk of Mr. Drouhard

Dear Amity Families,

It's hard to believe we are week into May! While state testing is behind us, we still have plenty of academics left to squeeze in with our students. This is the time of year that teachers pull out their bag of tricks and work to engage students in hands-on projects and activities to keep their interest! They also like to sprinkle in a field trip here and there to make it interesting! Hopefully your child is enjoying their last days at Amity this school year!

Take Care,
