Northwest Announcements
Facilities Focus Group October 22, 2014

Attention Parents:  we would like to enlist the help of 15-20 parents that would be willing to meet with Dr. Matt Adams, Chief Operating Officer for ACSD, on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 from 5:00-6:00 in the Northwest Media Center.  Dr. Adams is conducting a facilities focus group to get input on needs for NW.  As you know, the PPEL money was approved by the voters for 10 more years, therefore he is conducting a needs assessment and developing a plan of action on how to improve our building. 

 Please let me know if you can attend this important meeting by email travis.busby@ankenyschools.org or call the school office at 965-9680.

Picture RETAKE Day
School picture Retake day has been scheduled for Thursday-October 30, 2014.  If your student was absent on picture day, they will be added to the schedule and have their picture taken that day for school records and identification purposes.  If you are unhappy with the portrait package you purchased and would like to have your student's picture re-taken, please call the office 965-9680 to have them placed on the schedule.  Please return the entire portrait package to the school office.

Parents: Please take the School-Year Calendar Planning Survey -
Each year, Ankeny Schools’ staff, administration and Board representatives meet to discuss and plan the school calendar. Part of that planning includes surveying parents regarding their preferences and using that feedback to guide our decisions through the process.

We are beginning our planning process for the 2015-2016 school calendar, and would like to invite parents to take our brief nine-question, multiple-choice survey found at the following link:


 
This is drop-off week for the Winter Clothing Donation Drive:
This week, each of Ankeny's schools will accept clean, gently-used winter clothing to donate to Ankeny children in need.  If you have coats, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves or boots you would like to donate, please drop them off at your child's school.  Items will be accepted during school hours, October 20-24

The donation drive is sponsored by a new program called F.E.W.D. (Faith and Education Winter Donations), supported by Project Fresh Start through the Ankeny Community Education Department.
