Happy Monday Kate Mitchell Family!

Today is the week of ISASP testing for our 3rd through 5th graders. Please make sure, if your student is in this group, to help them by getting them to bed early, making sure they get breakfast, and (most importantly) know that doing their best is all we need them to do. Some have started testing today and nervous going through one of the tests, they may not know everything on their tests – the year isn’t over yet – and that is perfectly fine.

Thursday is PTA sponsored STEAM night starting at 5pm and running until 7. We will have a different group in each classroom including the ISU insect zoo, the ISU airpad with a quad copter, a veterinarian and more! A meteorologist, Brett McIntyre, will be talking in the gym starting at 5pm. The following food providers will also be in attendance: Carlos’ Quesadillas & Tacos, Super Dog/ Gyro cart from smiles food carts and Kona Ice. We hope to see many of you there. The flyer can be found HERE.

On April 20th, from 2-4 P.M., AMS will host its first INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP FAIR. We will have presentations, art activities, displays of art from WORLDLY GOODS and cultural books from the Ames Public Library, and several from our community will be wearing traditional attire from different countries. This event is for all ages, please come and celebrate our rich culture.
