5th and 6th Graders Compete in Chester County Reading Olympics
Recently some of our 5th and 6th graders competed in the Chester County Reading Olympics competition at West Chester East High School. All teams performed exceptionally well earning eight blue ribbons and one red ribbon! The primary goal of Reading Olympics is to help students grow and develop as readers while exposing them to a variety of different books. Our AGI student definitely accomplished that goal, learned how to work together as a team, and had fun!

Grief and Loss Group Is Available to AGIS Students
Our school counselors, as well as our student assistance program liaison, work throughout the year to help students deal with the loss of a loved one when that need might arise. This might be individually or in a small group. Mrs. Erin Matthews, our student assistance program liaison, worked with a group of students recently and is preparing to begin a new Grief and Loss group soon.

Take Our Daughters & Sons To Work Day 2014
Thursday, April 24, is designated as Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day all across the United States. If you plan to take your child to work with you that day, you must send a note in prior to April 24 in order for the day to be considered a field trip and not an absence.  
Attention Volunteers
Volunteers, please remember to sign your index cards for the school year. If you don't sign them, we won't be able to make sure you are updated in the computer system. If you come to volunteer next year and there is no record of you volunteering and the teacher the student had that year doesn't remember you volunteering, or if your clearances are over a year old, you will have to redo your clearances. Thank you for helping the students. 
Attendance Reminders
Attendance on a regular basis is imperative to student success. Absences, late arrivals, and early dismissals can have a significant impact on student learning and achievement and, in some instances, may lead to disenrollment of the student or, legal consequences for students and parents.
