Dear Amargosa Valley School Parents,
As this school year draws to a close, we would like to extend our appreciation for all of your patience and support during this pandemic year. We have been very fortunate in that we have had the majority of our students in the face-to-face model for the majority of the school year in the traditional school day. Our students and staff have certainly risen to the occasion working hard and being flexible when necessary to ensure the most effective and safe learning environment possible.
We also would like to publicly recognize and thank our local businesses and community service organizations who have donated to our Student Incentive Fund this school year. EDP Renewables North America, Lhoist, Longstreet Casino and Saloon, Valley Electric, and the Amargosa Town Board have all made generous donations to our Student Incentive Fund this school year. The incentives from this fund help provide additional motivation for our students to do their best work in school and to do their best on the High Stakes Tests that our students take each year. These incentives have included reward trips to the Adventuredome, and Sea Quest, Bounce House End-of-Year celebrations, pizza parties, ice cream socials, and raffles with lots of “cool’ prizes. We look at these businesses and organizations as school partners and good neighbors in the Amargosa Valley.
Next week, we will send out important end-of-the-year dates and information through our School Website, Facebook Page, and personally with our students. Please look for that information.
Chuck Fannin, Principal, Amargosa Valley School
