PG Movie Permission Forms:

In an effort to appeal to some of our older students (Grades 2-8) on Fun Fridays (Camps and Parents Night Out too!), we would like to offer some specific movies that are rated PG.  We would like your permission to do that.  Click the link below to complete an authorization form for your child(ren). You can specify certain movies or choose all.  To be clear, we will always offer a G-Rated Movie as an option in one classroom and a PG-Rated Movie in a different classroom.  Without a permission slip on file, the only movies we would allow your child to watch would be any “G” Rated Movie.  Other than G rated movies, we will not screen any movies that aren’t on our specific list on the form, even if they are rated PG.  


PG Movie Permission Form


Please Note: All K/1 Students will only be allowed to watch “PG” Rated Movies at Parents Night Out (if a permission slip is on file)!  K/1 will only be allowed the "G" Movies at Camp and AfterCare.

Community Service Project:

The ADS AfterCare Program will be doing a “Penny Harvest” during the 2016-2017 school year.  We are asking families to have a penny jar at their home to collect coins (specifically pennies but any coins are allowed).  At any time, the kids can bring them to school and add them to the “Penny Jars” located in each AfterCare Classroom.  At the end of the school year, the students will come together to vote on a community service project to help better the community.  Students will add up the funds that they raised throughout the year and decide on a project that they can do to help the community.  As few as 25 pennies a month from each child will go a long way to helping make this project a success.    Let’s show our students that even a penny can make a difference!


“Discovery” Talks:

Once or twice a month, I’d like to invite different parents to sign up to come in and talk to the AfterCare classes.  Parents could give a talk about their careers, traveling, hobbies, etc.  Anything that you think the kids might find interesting.  Parents would prepare 10-15 minute talk about their subject matter and then do a Q&A with the kids.  Parents could bring souvenirs/objects for a show & tell session as part of their talk or even photos if the talk was about a travel destination.  Depending on the subject matter, we can limit this to certain age groups or open it to all ages.
