I 'm late getting this posted today due to my jet - or should I say "Disney" - lag! So many words of thanks have to go out to Mrs. Julie and Mrs. Sally Williams for organizing the Disney Performance trip this weekend. I cannot thank the wonderful parents and grandparents and teachers who gave up their time - and sleep - to chaperon the students Friday and Saturday. I am so proud of the way our students performed - on the stage and in the audience. It was gratifying to see the results of the time and effort they have put into rehearsals. It was even nicer to hear the compliments regarding their behavior. Thank you, middle schoolers; great job! I'm glad you're a part of SAA!

Congratulations to the four SAA students whose work is being displayed at the Sarasota-Bradenton Airport for the next year: Bryan Jorge, 7th grade, Annelyse Swain, 5th grade, Joseph Sprouse, 4th grade, and Kennedy Cole, Kindergarten. We are very proud of you! More information and photos can be found on our website. Check out the link given in the announcements.
There are only two weeks until Winter Break and we have lots to do in the way of testing. The Algebra mid-term EOC is Thursday, December 11, from 8:05 - 10:00 in the computer lab. It is very important that students are on time to school for the testing. Middle school students will have to choose their second semester exploratory classes this week so we have them registered by January 12. Students who did not take PE first semester must be enrolled second semester.
As a reminder - the flu mist immunization provided by the Health Department will be available for students Thursday, Dec. 11 in the SAA administration building. If you are planning for your child to participate, be sure to return the form sent home last week.
Have a wonderful week!
