This coming Thursday, September 18th, is the annual Back to School Night for parents to visit campus and meet the teachers. AOAT is hosting a Parent Social to gather our AOAT families together for mingling and refreshments before the classroom visits begin. Parents are such an important factor in student success, and we want to encourage our students and their parents to be the best “learning teams” that they can be. When the vital role of education is stressed at home, then students come to school motivated to excel.
Parents can also order AOAT shirts at the Social. This past week, Academy students submitted their shirt designs, teachers selected the best two, then all grades voted on their favorite shirt for this big Anniversary year. Orders are being taken this week in art classes and at Back to School Night, and shirts will be printed next week. Don’t miss out – this shirt is sure to be a collector’s item when supplies run out!
