Amelia Earhart Elementary School

Parents of Amelia Earhart,

We have had a great start to our school year, and I hope that each of your children feels the same way!  Please let us know if we can help you or your child in any way as we move forward with the school year.  A few important items:

I believe that one of the most important things you can do with/for your child is to read each day with them.  This will help improve their reading skills and develop a love for reading that will open doors in their future.  Just as important, it can be a way to connect each day with them.  I challenge each parent to make time daily to read with their kids.

We will begin our full school days on August 29th. 8:30 AM – 3:20 PM Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM on Friday.  (Half Day Kindergarten is 8:30 AM – 11:40 AM each day).

If you are interested in being more involved in school decisions, please consider joining our School Community Council (SCC).  We meet once a month to discuss important items at our school.  The primary purpose is to decide the use of the Trust Land funds from the state, which recently has been about $64,000 a year.  If you are interested, please email me ( between now and Tuesday, September 6th to become part of that decision-making committee.

We apologize, but there are some mistakes on the calendar printed on our AVIATOR Homework folders.  Please download the correct calendar information

If you have a young child not yet in Kindergarten, please consider signing them up for the Free Online Waterford Upstart Learning Program

It has been estimated that as much as 80% of learning occurs visually. Currently, vision disorders are the 4th most common childhood disability in the United States with one in four children having an undiagnosed vision problem. Our school is committed to ensuring every student is healthy and ready to learn.   In support of our commitment to promote healthy learners, our school nurse along with trained volunteers will conduct school-wide distance vision screening the morning of September 12th, 2022. If your child wears glasses or contacts, please have them wear them on the day of the screening.   A child’s vision can change as they grow, therefore it is important that students receive regular screenings to identify those that might need to be seen by an eye care professional.   Early detection and treatment of a vision problem is critical to your child’s educational success, health, and wellbeing. You will be notified if your student does not pass the vision screening after the rescreening process.  If you do not want your child to participate, complete the opt-out form and return it to your child’s teacher before September 13th, 2022. We look forward to ensuring every child is healthy and ready to learn.

Thank you,

Principal Ryan Mccarty
