Come out and support our Graduates!
May 18, 2020 Amargosa Parents: On Tuesday, May 19th, all Pre-K through Fifth-grade students’ personal belongings will be available to be picked up in front of our school. Each student will have a bag with their name on it and those bags will contain personal belongings, as well as a treat or treats that the student may have earned for completing their Reading Log. Parents, please stay in your cars when you drive up to the school. The teacher aides will bring your student’s bag of belongings to you as you stay in your car. If you are returning a chrome book, please inform the teacher aide as they deliver your student’s belongings to you. They will take the chrome book at that time. Our pick-up hours for the student belongings pick-up will be from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm tomorrow. For our Beatty High School students who live in Amargosa Valley, you can pick up your belongings at Amargosa Valley School under the same conditions on Wednesday from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm. Those Pre-K through Grade 5 students who weren’t able to pick up their belongings on Tuesday can come on Wednesday as well. To ensure everyone’s safety and health, our teacher aides will be wearing face masks and gloves and be observing all social distancing expectations during the belongings retrieval process. Thanks for your cooperation with the social distancing and health precautions that we are encouraging when you come to pick up your student’s belongings. Chuck Fannin Assistant Principal, Amargosa/Beatty Schools.

Reading aloud is not just for preschoolers You may think of reading aloud as something you do with a young child. But your teen can benefit from it, too. Consider reading aloud to each other from a story or article that might interest him. You might also check out an audiobook from your library. Hearing fluent reading can improve your teen's own reading fluency. And if he likes it, it may inspire him to read another book on that topic or by that author. click on the following link for further information: http://niswc.com/36acC276091 ______________________________________ La lectura en voz alta no es solo para los niños preescolares Quizás usted considere que leer en voz alta es una actividad para realizar solo con los niños pequeños. Pero su joven también puede beneficiarse de la lectura en voz alta. Considere turnarse con él para leer en voz alta una historia o artículo que podría interesarle. También podría sacar un audiolibro de la biblioteca. Escuchar una lectura fluida ayudará a mejorar la fluidez de su joven al leer. Y si le gusta, podría inspirarlo a leer otro libro de ese tema o autor. Haga clic en el siguiente enlace para más información: http://niswc.com/46acC276091
