Breakfast in the Classroom!

We are excited to announce that Anderson qualified for a breakfast and lunch program that would allow all students to eat at no cost to the family. In order to keep us qualified for this program, we need all families to complete the free and reduced meal forms regardless of your income. The information on these forms is confidential and staff members are available to assist anyone who needs help completing the forms. Students will eat breakfast in their classroom from 8:00 to 8:15 while they complete morning work. If your child arrives late to school they will miss breakfast. Breakfast will not be served before school or during recess. Your child is welcome to bring a snack from home to eat during morning recess if they are hungry.

Science Night Success!

Thank you to the many families who participated in our Family Science Night! There were 80 children engaged in science activities with their families. The Children's Discovery Museum set up 10 different science stations featuring gadgets in motion. We also had our new giant blue blocks out for children to build and explore. A special thank you to the 10 staff members, parent volunteer and 5 past students who volunteered to run the science stations. It was a fabulous family event and it was wonderful to see returning students giving back to Anderson.
