Welcome

Dear Grand Blanc Academy All Star Families;

I hope you have enjoyed this summer. As usual, we have been working hard to plan for your child’s return. It will be another great year of supporting families and growing success. We are looking forward to your child’s new beginning! We are still busy taking enrollments and creating class lists. If you have friends or family that have talked about enrolling but have not yet taken the initiative, please encourage them to do so quickly. We have several grade levels that are nearly full! Your child’s classroom assignment will be posted at Open House. Teacher’s return on August 20th for training and preparation. Please note the Board of Directors has also approved the school calendar. Every Wednesday is an Early Release Day. This is planned for teachers to continue to have Professional Development on a weekly basis so we can provide the best instruction for your child!

We will not be offering latchkey this year. We did not have enough participation to maintain the program.

Our Open Houses are scheduled on:

Wednesday, August 29, 2018, from 5:00-7: 00 pm and Thursday, August 30th from 8:00-10:00 am. We have tried to accommodate your working schedules by offering a morning and an evening session.

Free Breakfast is served from 7:30-7:55. Instruction begins at 8:00 and dismissal begins at 3:30.

Wednesday dismissal begins at 12:45.

Free lunch is provided every day as well!

Classroom assignments and Bus lists will be posted during the Open Houses

Dismissal signs and car signs will also be available for pick-up

Please note that this event is a meet and greet and that we will have a Family Night later in September to review the school expectations to build a stronger school community!

This year we have been awarded an opportunity through an organization titled Pack Your Back. It is being promoted by Little Miss Flint, Mari Copeny. Each child in grades K-8 will receive a backpack full of supplies for the year. Please see the attached list so you will know what additional supplies your child may need. They will receive their backpack when you come to the Open House!

We have several new staff members this year and I am so excited for you to meet them. The range of experience is from beginning teacher to well over 10 years of teaching.  Although change can be a challenge, t his year will not be! Our staff is well prepared to work with your family in every way!

I know I have included a lot of information, but there is so much more to share. Please make it a prior it y to attend so that you have all the information you need to get started for the year!

The first day of school is September 4th!

All the Best,

Mrs. Patty Wood and the All Star school staff
