Dear Fellow Parents,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I hope you are well rested after a hot summer and are ready to get back into the rhythm of school.
The Aidan Parent Association (PA) is here to support your family. The purpose of the PA is to build community among our families, acting as an informational resource and as a vehicle to get more deeply involved in our school. We host several events throughout the year, as well as regular meetings to help everyone stay up to date on what is happening at Aidan. These get-togethers serve as consistent opportunities to connect, to learn, and to navigate this unique environment together. We hope you will participate!
Please mark your calendars and join us for the following kick-off events this fall:
- Popsicles in the Park on Saturday, Sept. 10th at 10:30 AM at the Macomb Playground. Visit with fellow parents while your kids play. Don't forget your masks, sunblock, bug spray, and reusable water bottles while your kids enjoy their cold treats.
- Back to School Night on Thursday, Sept. 15th at 7:00 PM. Hear about your child's classroom schedule and procedures from their teacher. This is your opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into what will be happening in the classroom this fall.
- First PA Meeting on Friday, Sept. 23th at 9:30 AM online. Join us for the first meeting of the year, which will be held virtually. As a parent at Aidan, you are automatically a member of the PA. Meetings last about an hour. (We understand busy schedules, so you are welcome to login and off as needed.)
- Fall Festival on Sunday, Oct. 2nd. As is tradition (loosely defined as pre-2020 and the last few years notwithstanding), we will meet on the Aidan playground for refreshments and fun. Please mark your calendar!
We also encourage you to fill out our online Parent Volunteer Form, located on the Parent Association Page of Aidan's website. Volunteering is an excellent way to connect with those who share your passions and interests, increase your connectivity within the community and share your voice. Any amount of time you contribute will be greatly appreciated and we welcome new ideas.
In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please join The Aidan Parent Facebook Group and be sure that you are also following Aidan’s official Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter pages. And feel free to contact us, Rebecca and Bridget (find us in the online directory!), or our staff contact, Jahanna Schwab, with questions or suggestions to help us build and strengthen our Aidan community.
We look forward to a great year and look forward to getting to know our fellow Aidan parents.
All the best,
Your 2022-2023 Parent Association Co-Chairs
