Hello Second Grade Families,
We had a great week here in Second Grade! Here is what is going on next week.

Dean’s Den- a Message from your Dean
Kickboard:
The end of trimester is coming and the students have worked hard to earn their Rebel Bucks. Good news is, the students running total will carry over to the next trimester, so they can keep saving or spend away in their respective class kickboard stores.

Uniform:
As you all know, part of American Academy attendance includes our student uniform policy. All uniform tops and bottoms must be purchased through Dennis Uniform.

Below are uniform reminders:

▪ Students MUST wear approved Dennis Uniform shorts, pants, and tops.
▪ Students are NOT allowed to wear long-sleeved undershirts under their American Academy uniform shirt.
▪ On dress-of-choice days, students MUST follow the guidelines of the uniform policy. Students cannot wear tank tops or any shirt that does not cover the shoulders.
▪ On dress-of-choice days, students who choose to wear leggings MUST have shirts that are the length of their fingertips when their arms are placed down at their side.
▪ Students are NOT allowed to wear Smart Watches this includes Fit Bit, Gizmos, Apple, Garmin, etc.
▪ Students are NOT allowed to wear shoes that light up.
▪ Students are NOT allowed to wear hoodies that are not from American Academy.
▪ Students Must have their shirts tucked in.
▪ Male students may not wear ¾ compression shorts / tights underneath their shorts.
▪ Socks must follow the American Academy uniform policy. They may be white, black, navy blue or red in color.

Students who arrive at school outside of uniform will be asked to call home for the appropriate attire.
