We hope you have had an outstanding summer break, and we are excited to have all students back for the 2017-2018 school year. This will be my fourth year at Anthony, and I expect it to be our best yet. We will be continuing our PBIS Summit Buck System, Character Trait Certificates, BIST Process, and many other Anthony traditions as well as adding new ones such as expanding our Facebook Live announcements and Character Trait Program.
As we start preparing for next year, we want to share some important dates/details.

The following documents are required to enroll your student:
Proof of Residency: Must be in the form of a water bill, electric bill, or lease agreement. Required to ensure students attend the correct school. Immunization Records: Students will not be allowed to start school until all immunizations are up-to-date.
Student Physical: Physical examinations are required for students new to the district and under the age of 9. Physicals must be completed by a health care provider approved to perform health assessments.

Also, during its regular meeting on Wednesday, July 19, the Leavenworth Board of Education voted in favor of adding 10 minutes of instructional time to the school day at all grade levels. Elementary students, including those at Anthony, will begin their school day at 8:10 a.m. and release at 3:20 p.m. At Anthony, our students will still enter from the back U Loop, and doors will still open at 7:45 am.
