Screen Shot 2014-09-16 at 11.01.27 PMAmity Middle School Principal Kathi Fuller-Cutler released this fund-raising information today:

The first fundraising event of the year has begun. With the PTSO, we are selling KidStuff Coupon Savings Books. Homeroom teachers have passed out a Ziploc bag containing KidStuff books and directions, for each student to bring home. We are asking students to sell at least two books. The books sell for $25.00 and we make a 50% profit on each book.

If a student is enrolled in the band, strings or choir, the first book sold will go to the PTSO and the second book’s profit will go to the music department to be allocated towards the individual student’s cost of his or her spring trip.

This is one of the largest fundraisers of the year and we need your support.

The fundraiser will run from Sept. 15 to Sept. 26.

Amity HIgh SchoolThe scheduling process for the 2014-15 school year at Amity High has begun.

This past Thursday and Friday, counselors met with students at the Middle School in Orange and the Middle School in Bethany to review course recommendations and assist 8th graders with the selection of 9th grade electives.

This week, 9th, 1oth and 11th grade students will meet with counselors in computer labs to review course and level recommendations, and select electives.

In preparation for these meetings, parents and students are asked to review the 2014-15 Amity Regional High School Program of Studies, which is posted on the high school website, and available by clicking: http://www.amityregion5.org/file/612/view.

I clicked the link and got this message: 

Oops! No file here by that name

If you are a parent and could not access the list, either call the school in the morning or pay close attention to the form your child brings home from school.

Students will bring home paper printouts of course verification forms. Parents are asked to review the selection of academic courses, course levels and electives, and sign the course verification form. Students are required to return the signed course verification form to the counseling office before the end of the school day on Monday, March 3.

Parents who have any questions may contact their child’s school counselor. Questions about course and course level recommendations should be addressed to teachers.
