Attention ShopRite Shoppers…
Shop, Swipe and Earn at ShopRite to help Amsterdam School! ShopRite’s “eLabelsForEducation” program makes it simple for ShopRite customers to earn points toward FREE ITEMS for our school. Visit www.elabelsforeducation.com to activate your ShopRite Price Plus card. Every time you purchase a participating “Labels for Education” product with your Price Plus card, Amsterdam will earn 1 point. ASHA can then use the points to purchase supplies for the Art Appreciation program (or other programs as ASHA sees fit)! Similar to Box Tops, you can also send in "Labels for Education" labels found on participating products (some examples include Campbells, Swanson, Glad, Dannon, Pepperidge Farm, Post, and V8 - just to name a few).

Stay Informed
The ASHA Website has all the latest information regarding everything ASHA. It's the first place you should check when you have a question. We update the Home page regularly to announce what's happening; and we archive older information on the Notices page. Bookmark our site: http://www.ashanj.com and visit often.

Thank You Notes from ASHA!!!
- Thank you Laura Schneider and her many parent volunteers who helped make this year's Halloween Howl such a fun event for Amsterdam students! The children enjoyed a night of dancing, games, crafts and snacks...followed by the ever-popular "Trunk or Treating" at the end of the event. Fantastic job, Laura!

- Have you "liked" ASHA on Facebook yet?? If so, you have probably noticed the ASHA posts throughout the school year. Many thanks to our "Go Green" committee chair, Sylvia Adinolfe, for keeping everyone posted of ASHA activities, announcements and reminders!

- Thank you to our Red Ribbon Week Co-Chairs, Stephanie McGibbon and Christine Tuttle, for organizing Amsterdam's program this year. Our students showed their commitment for staying "Drug Free" by proudly wearing their ribbons, decorating classroom doors, and showing their spririt by wearing red on Wednesday!

Website Photos of our Children
From time to time, ASHA will be posting select photos of Amsterdam School children on our website. The children in each photo will be identified and matched against our photo release database to ensure parents have given permission for the release of their child's photo. If you would like to submit photos that you have taken at ASHA events, please email them or provide a disc to Maryann Comiskey. Visit our website often to stay informed about your child's school and enjoy the photos.


Halloween Parties
All Halloween class parties will be held at the end of the school day, next Friday, November 16th. Children should come to school dressed in costume, but there will be NO PARADE.
