INTERNATIONAL NIGHT TIME CHANGE!
MONDAY FEBRUARY 24th, 2020
Come out to celebrate the diversity and multiculturalism that exists within the Aiken school community. It’s one of our favorite nights of the school year! This year we would like to enhance our international night to include more opportunities to showcase the traditions and cultures within our school community. Some examples may be teaching a dance, native to a particular country, teaching students how to write their names in a different language, sharing a book, sharing photographs, or assembling tri-boards.
To help make this night successful and fun, we welcome your participation and contribution. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the country you would like to help highlight. Once we have a list of participants we will contact you with more information.
CHANGES ARE COMING TO OUR CAFETERIA
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
There are now two easy ways to earn money for Aiken School though Box Tops for Education. You can download the app and scan your receipt, or you can continue to send in the box tops in plastic bags (grouped by 25). Of course, if you already taped them on a piece of paper we'll accept that as well. Please see the attached flyer for all the details.
Did you know the 2020 Census count impacts federal funding that communities receive each year for programs and services that are critical for schools, students, and younger children? When it comes to schools, the 2020 Census will determine funding for special education, teacher training, technology, school lunch assistance, Head Start and after-school programs.
How can you help? Be part of the solution, be counted because your family matters!
In mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you can respond in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail.
