A message from the Music Teacher Mr. Denke:


Hello all! I have created a music facebook page for Salem and Andrew Avenue schools! I will frequently be posting pictures, videos, student work and concert dates on this page. This is a great way to see what your child is learning in music class as well as what they have accomplished.  I hope to see you on there! Click here for Mr. Denke's Music Page

Mitten tree


1st Grade Community Service Project

Please help us in our efforts to keep all AAS community members in warm mittens and gloves this season!

There are many ways you and your family can take part...remember this project is kid-envisioned & planned!

  • Send in a clean, gently used pair of mittens or gloves

  • Shop Goodwill and/or consignment shops for deals

  • Help your scholar earn the funds (chores=responsibility) to purchase a new pair to donate

  • As a family collect and donate

  • Ask a crafty friend or family member to make mittens/gloves to donate

A “mitten tree” has been placed in a central location for community members to take mittens & gloves as needed!

Let’s make this happen and help our first grade scholars see the impact they can have!

Thank you for your support!
