Principal's Message

Anthony​ ​Families,
It​ ​is​ ​great​ ​to​ ​be​ ​back​ ​in​ ​the​ ​swing​ ​of​ ​things​ ​this​ ​school​ ​year.​ ​​ ​Though​ ​the​ ​eclipse​ ​was​ ​a​ ​bit cloudy,​ ​our​ ​students​ ​were​ ​able​ ​to​ ​participate​ ​in​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​engaging​ ​activities​ ​around​ ​this unique event.​ ​​ ​As​ ​well,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​observed​ ​some​ ​outstanding​ ​lessons​ ​and​ ​relationships​ ​being built​ ​as​ ​we​ ​have​ ​gotten​ ​into​ ​this​ ​school​ ​year.
If​ ​you​ ​have​ ​not​ ​done​ ​so​ ​yet,​ ​I​ ​hope​ ​you​ ​can​ ​help​ ​welcome​ ​the​ ​following​ ​new​ ​Anthony teachers​ ​to​ ​our​ ​team:
Kindergarten​ ​-​ ​Heather​ ​Brooks

Certified​ ​K-2​ ​Interventionist​ ​-​ ​Stormy​ ​McClanahan
As​ ​well,​ ​we​ ​have​ ​some​ ​outstanding​ ​new​ ​paraeducators​ ​and​ ​aides​ ​on​ ​our​ ​team,​ ​so​ ​I​ ​hope you​ ​can​ ​join​ ​me​ ​in​ ​welcoming​ ​them​ ​to​ ​our​ ​Anthony​ ​family.
Also,​ ​our​ ​team​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​remind​ ​you​ ​that​ ​our​ ​Title​ ​I​ ​Family​ ​Fun​ ​Night​ ​will​ ​be​ ​on​ ​Thursday, September​ ​21​ ​from​ ​5:00-7:00​ ​at​ ​Anthony.​ ​​ ​At​ ​our​ ​Family​ ​Fun​ ​Night,​ ​our​ ​Child​ ​Nutrition Department​ ​will​ ​be​ ​serving​ ​food.​ ​​ ​As​ ​well,​ ​we​ ​will​ ​have​ ​a​ ​Kona​ ​Ice​ ​Snow​ ​Cone​ ​Truck​ ​with snow​ ​cones​ ​for​ ​sale​ ​(please​ ​bring​ ​cash​ ​for​ ​this).​ ​​ ​Further,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​working​ ​to​ ​book​ ​the Leavenworth​ ​Fire​ ​Department​ ​to​ ​bring​ ​a​ ​fire​ ​truck,​ ​have​ ​face​ ​painting/temporary​ ​tattoos, and​ ​potentially​ ​a​ ​bounce​ ​house.​ ​​ ​We​ ​hope​ ​to​ ​see​ ​all​ ​Anthony​ ​families​ ​at​ ​this​ ​yearly​ ​event.
As​ ​always,​ ​thank​ ​you​ ​for​ ​your​ ​continued​ ​support​ ​of​ ​our​ ​Anthony​ ​students​ ​and​ ​staff.​ ​​ ​If​ ​you have​ ​any​ ​questions​ ​about​ ​various​ ​topics,​ ​please​ ​feel​ ​free​ ​to​ ​contact​ ​us​ ​at​ ​​(913)​ ​684-1500 and​ ​see​ ​the​ ​various​ ​staff​ ​members​ ​below:
