Save the Date!
This is a special year for your student and your family – graduation year! There will be a lot of details to cover in the next few months, like the class gift, the class pictures, baby photos for our student slide show, the graduation gowns and diploma covers, dress code for the ceremony, and rehearsal times. We’ll get to them all, but to start with, we wanted you to be able to save the date and pass along to relatives!

Bring on the Baby Pics!
It’s time to pull out those baby albums and send us your favorite baby or toddler pics of your 8th grader! We have two very fun reasons for digging through your baby albums.
  • The Graduation Slide Show
    Email a baby/toddler photo to Ms. Shawn Paumen, our Middle School Technology Instructor, who will be putting together a slide show for the 8th grade graduation ceremony. Ms. Paumen graciously volunteered to create the slideshow for us this year - thank you, Ms. Paumen! Please email one baby/toddler picture of your child with their name included in the email to Ms. Paumen by Friday, March 17, so YOUR child can be a part of it on the big day! The slideshow will run before and after the ceremony.
  • Yearboo(optional)
    To honor your child, you may purchase a 1/12 page for $10 or a 1/6 page for $20. You can pay by check (made payable to American Academy) or cash. You may drop off the money at the front office or have your child bring it to Mrs. Marsh. After you’ve placed your order, please email one photo (preferably a baby or toddler photo) and a note (6 sentences or less) for your advertisement to Ms. Marsh. Your photo must be at least 300dpi or they will be blurry in the yearbook. It is also suggested that your child be the only person in this photo, but this is not required. Please place your order no later than March 18th. Orders cannot be accepted after this date. It is necessary to enforce this deadline so we have adequate time to complete the yearbook. Please note that we will do our best to keep all 8th grade ads a secret unless you choose to share yours with your child ahead of time. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Marsh.
