American Academy News
New BOD and SAC Members Announced
CP&PKR - The 2015 School Accountability Committee (SAC) and Board of Directors (BOD) election results are in! They have now been officially certified by our Board Election Committee (BEC), so please join us in welcoming these two new members to these two very important American Academy organizations.

NEW BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEMBER – Lisa Gillette
Lisa Gillette has served on the American Academy School Accountability Committee for the past two years. At the Parker campus, she has also been very active as a day-to-day volunteer during that time, and looks forward to lending her professional experience in finance, accounting, and risk management to her new position as a director. Lisa has two children at the Parker campus.

NEW SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY COMMITTEE MEMBER – Melissa Sitzmann
As a student teacher, Melissa Sitzmann’s experience with school-specific challenges give her a professional perspective on those challenges and possible solutions. She brings a B.S. in Biology and 16 years of experience working in Human Resources to the committee. Melissa has twins at the Parker campus, and is currently studying to be a Middle School science teacher.

We’d also like to recognize and sincerely thank the other BOD and SAC candidates - Kristen Sanchez, Kay Wan, Nicholas Grove, and Krishna Potlapelly - for submitting their applications for this year’s election. We know how much time and effort is required to put together those applications, and it definitely takes a special kind of bravery to put yourself out there in front of 3000+ other American Academy parents for consideration.

Congrats to Our 2015 Graduates!
We are so proud of you all. You will be missed!!
Used Uniform Resale - July 25
CP&PKR - Join the PTO-CP and PTO-PKR for the Uniform Resale on Saturday, July 25, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm! At this annual event, parents can plan to purchase gently-used AA uniform items at great prices, usually around 50% - 80% of the original price. The event will take place at the CP campus in the gym and cafeteria.

Whether you want to buy or sell uniform items, be sure to take the time to read the PTO Uniform Resale page. The PTOs have this amazing event down to an absolute science, and they provide great tips for buyers and very specific instructions for sellers to help you get the most out of your Uniform Resale experience.

TDAP Immunizations REQUIRED for 15-16 Grade 6
CP&PKR - Important! Because of the current, state-wide pertussis epidemic, all incoming 2015-2016 6th graders MUST receive the Tdap immunization prior to beginning the next school year!

Even if your child has been previously immunized, he or she MUST be revaccinated before the start of the 2015-2016 school year to ensure immunity and public safety. Please read the attached letter from our district nurse, Paulette Joswick, and contact Ms. Joswick if you have any questions about this requirement.
