News and Upcoming Events

Ice Cream Social 

The Angell Ice Cream Social will be on Friday, June 7 from 6 to 8 pm!  This event is an Angell tradition that celebrates the end of the school year. All Angell students, staff and families are invited for an evening of fun, food, games, and a chance to visit with friends before summer vacation.  

You can pre-order activity wristbands and pizzas by Thursday, May 30 at midnight.

Please sign up to volunteer at the event!  We can't run Ice Cream Social without you. 

End-of-Year Gifts for Teachers and Staff


You will be hearing from your room parents soon regarding classroom teacher gift collections.  Room parents will be organizing a group collection for their classroom teacher, which will be optional for families to participate in.  Individual family gifts and cards are also welcomed and cherished by teachers if you prefer.


The PTO will provide gifts for specials teachers and staff.  Thanks to your generous Family Contributions this year, we will not be collecting separately on this occasion as we have in past years. 


Angell’s Teacher Support Group


On Monday, June 3, from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm Angell parents and kids are invited to make cards for their teachers and participate in other teacher-support based activities at the University Lutheran Chapel’s community room. Feel free to bring a beverage & snack and hang out while the kids write cards and draw pictures for their teachers. Please email Vanessa Lane at lane.vanessar@gmail.com with any questions.


Notes from Principal Fenech & the Office 


VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION BREAKFAST - THURSDAY, 8:45AM

Angell Staff are grateful for the support of families and community members. Your contributions are greatly appreciated! As a small gesture of our thanks, we invite you to enjoy a breakfast buffet, connect with fellow volunteers, and take home a small gift. 

When & Where: May 23d, 8:45-9:45AM, Angell's Cafeteria  

Please RSVP @ https://tinyurl.com/May23breakfast   Please join us, even if for 15 minutes.  (*optional PTO meeting to start @ 9:30AM*)



FRIDAY’S FIELD DAY 

Students in Y5, K, 1st, and 2nd grade will be rotating through 10 outdoor activity stations beginning at 9:40am.   Students in grade 3, 4, and 5 will rotate through the activities starting at 1:40pm.  

To do’s - be sure your child has a water bottle (labeled with their name), sun protection, and comfortable gym shoes.  In past years, students have worn Angell spiritwear (or school colors: blue/white) as a fun way to show comradery and school pride! Students may get splashed by water as a few of the stations involve water play.  Most students will dry quickly, however, more “adventurous” students may want to bring a change of clothes. (You know your child, so plan accordingly.) 


2024-2025 SCHOOL CALENDAR

Next year’s school calendar is still being negotiated, but you can see upcoming winter and spring break dates at 2021-2026 Guidelines for a Perpetual Common School Calendar for Washtenaw County School Districts  Here you’ll see common dates for all of Washtenaw County on page two. 



IMPORTANT: Re-Enrollment for 2024-25

Each year, returning families are required to re-enroll. Every family should have received an email with directions for enrollment for the 2024-25 school year. It is important that everyone do this as soon as possible. The email will come from noreplyenrollment@powerschool.com. The process does not take very long but this is critical to our planning for next fall. 


LUNCH VOLUNTEERS - YOU CAN STILL JOIN THE FUN!

 Please sign up to help with overall supervision, Walking Club facilitation, and/or cafeteria help. Please check out this spreadsheet each week if you can donate an hour or two to lunchtime supervision sometime this week.
