Hey Hey West Ada parents! Would you like your voice to be heard? We need your opinion. A group of West Ada parents have developed an accelerated school re-opening plan called 'Return2Learn'. Please take the survey and sign our petition so the school board will know where parents stand!

Here are some more resources for families at home. While the article says it is great for Gifted and Talented students, this resource is great for all kids.
Just a reminder the carnival is coming up this Friday night. There are still many open slots for helping, especially running games. All materials are provided just need people to man the booths. (perfect for middle and High school students looking for service hours) https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4eacab2ba3fc1-back1://
Fall carnival is coming up and we need many hands to make this even a success see where you or middle or high schooler can help!! thank you!!

A big thank you to Andrus PTA for helping supply our classrooms as well and letting us turn in receipts for the expenses that teachers have taken on without realizing anyone would help us out. We are so appreciative!!!
Join us at Cafe Zupas tonight for the last family night out fundraiser of the school year!
This week is food allergy awareness week. As we approach the end of the school year and as a reminder for next year, let's try to be understanding of the kids that manage their allergies and/or diseases with the food that they eat or don't eat, each and every day. It can be scary and frustrating for a child to deal with and even more anxiety for their parents to not be there to help guide them. It wasn't a choice for these kids to be different, they're not just being picky, but it's something they have to be aware of all the time. Rewards and treats do not always have to be food. Lets try to find ways that every child in the classroom can participate with the same rewards and celebrations and not feel isolated because of their differences. For these kids and their families, they learn very quickly that people are way more important that any tasty treat. When we know better we do better!
So many beautiful decorations, delicious treats, kind words, and sweet gifts--It's been a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week here at Andrus. A Huge thanks to our amazing PTA, our generous families, and our kind kids!!!😁💕🎉

To help the families of Andrus Elementary stay updated and informed.

Make sure to ask your kids about the amazing Bike Rodeo put on by our Health, PE teachers, Valley Regional Transit, and some awesome parent volunteers. They all learned about bike safety, hand signals, how to brake, to say “on your left” when passing, and all wanted to stay out and rodeo the whole day. So fun! Valley Regional Transit

Major thank you to our Andrus Family for helping make this possible through your donations. 

After a couple of years of no assemblies, Andrus was able to bring in a Science Wizard and his Extreme Science Assembly. 

All grades were able to attend at two different times for about 45 mins. 

This show is a large production including two performers, music and amazingly visual demonstrations:
700,000 Volt Van de Graaff generator (VDG): (one of the largest you can find), it creates 10-15 inch lightening bolts and more than enough static to raise hair
Vortex Cannons: creates flying rings of fog 
Floating beach balls: thanks to the Bernoulli effect, we have flight

What did your kid think of the assembly?
