Welcome to Atlantic Avenue Elementary

 
Hello Parents and Guardians,
April showers are gone and the May flowers are here.  The time is going to fly by as we near the end of the school year.  During Spring Break, our maintenance team at Atlantic Avenue School installed the security vestibule.  We also had red emergency lights installed at Seventh and Atlantic Avenue Schools to alert visitors and traveling staff members that we are in a drill or an emergency situation and not to enter the building.   A new sensory path was installed at Atlantic Avenue School for the students to use when needed.  In the near future, Seventh and Atlantic Avenue Schools will have a sensory library available for the staff to use as needed for their students. 
The 5th and 6th grade events that took place in April were very successful and beneficial to the students. The administrators and guidance counselors from all of the elementary schools and sending district schools worked hard to make these events a success. The events were organized to help with the transition to the Jr. High School and High School. It is the beginning stages to help foster positive relationships and to promote our school district.
Teacher Appreciation week is May 6th through May 10th.  This is a great time to let the teachers know how much you appreciate their time and efforts they put into the successes of your students.  
We will begin our NJSLA assessments in the coming weeks.  The 3rd and 4th graders will take their assessment from May 6th through May 10th.  The 5th and 6th graders will take their assessments from May 13th through May 17th.  The 5th graders only, will take the NJSLA Science assessment on May 30th and 31st.  As usual, the students will be well prepared for the assessments and will do their best. Our staff has worked extremely hard throughout the school year to prepare the students for success.  
The Haddon Heights Elementary students will be performing the National Anthem at the Phillies game on May 14th. Good luck to all of our choir students. Our annual 6th grade trip to Camp Ockanickon will take place on May 28th.  Have a great Month of May. The hot days of June are coming. 
  

Sincerely,
Mr. Ormsby, Principal


  
Here is the Calendar for the 2019-2020 School Year!  2019-2020 Calendar

Hello Stakeholders. February was a quick month filled with fun and learning for all of our children. Both Atlantic and Seventh Avenue Schools worked on their Community Service Projects and assisted many who are in need of help and assistance. Atlantic Avenue School staff members made and served dinner at the Ronald McDonald House and the students created care packages and place-mats for those residents. Seventh Avenue School hosted a Read-A-Thon and the students made book marks for the donated books that are being sent to Pender County School District in North Carolina, which was devastated by Hurricane Florence.  Many thanks goes out to the staff and students of Atlantic and Seventh Avenue School for all of their hard work to help others in need.   
I hope everyone is enjoying the end of the winter months as we start to enter the Spring and March Madness.  March is a busy time of year with many events on the schedule.  There will be HHPTG sponsored assemblies, HHPTG Science Fair, Atlantic Avenue Talent Show, Kids Heart Challenge (formerly Jump Rope For Heart), Read Across America, our first formal elementary school play, "Annie", and much more.  Also, Report cards will be coming home on March 20th.  
Be sure to read those weekly email updates and to check your teacher's school website regularly.  The home and school connection is a valuable part in all of our educational endeavors.
The School Leadership and Safety Committee met on January 28, 2019 and March 4, 2019 and discussed many items to help make changes for the next school year.  Their input is valued.  Keep in mind that all are welcome to attend those meetings to have their thoughts be heard.   If at any time someone has an idea or a concern, please feel free to reach out to Mr. Ormsby.    
Be sure to "Rock Your Socks" on March 21st because that date represents Trisomy 21, the medical term for Down syndrome.

Have a great March!

Sincerely,
Mr. Ormsby, Principal

Atlantic Avenue School Community Service Project

Atlantic Avenue School's community service project will benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Camden, NJ.  The Ronald McDonald House was built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. When a child is hospitalized, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed. (https://ronaldhouse-snj.org/who-we-are/).   With that said, the staff has already designated an evening in February to purchase, prepare, and serve dinner for the families staying at the House.  The contributions from the students will tie into the evening of service perfectly.  Classes will make and donate family welcome bags and snack packs for kids.  They will write letters to children and parents that stay at the Ronald McDonald House and make place-mats for residents to use while they dine.  Atlantic Avenue School is excited about the possibilities to help this worthy cause.  More information will be sent out to the parents and guardians in the near future.  




  Atlantic Avenue School is located at 21 East Atlantic Avenue in Haddon Heights, New Jersey.  Mr. Christopher Ormsby is the Principal. He can be contacted by email at ormsbyc@hhsd.k12.nj.us or reached by phone at (856) 547-0630. Approximately 150 students in grades Pre-K through Sixth attend Atlantic Avenue School.
