Welcome to your new school district newsletter

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the first edition of our Ann Arbor Public Schools e-newsletter.

Our goal is to get news and information about school programs, students, staff and education initiatives into the public eye. We also want to encourage you to send us your story ideas, interesting tidbits about things going on in your schools and even photos and video clips of school events.

Our goal is to get news and information about school programs, students, staff and education initiatives into the public eye. We also want to encourage you to send us your story ideas, interesting tidbits about things going on in your schools and even photos and video clips of school events.

We welcome story ideas and contributions from staff, parents, students and members of the Ann Arbor community.

Send us your information or simply give us a call and we’ll take it from there.

This is a place where you can share all sorts of information from events and great programs to suggestions of special teachers and staff members to profile. We also welcome your feedback about this newsletter and what you would like to see included in future editions.

This edition, we feature an occupational therapist based at Haisley Elementary, a feature about an award-winning student newsmagazine at Community High School,  as well as information about Tuesday’s millage election and other school news of interest.

We plan to publish this newsletter every other week, or about twice each month; our next edition will be posted online on Monday, Nov. 16. You will find a regular link to it on the school district’s Web page and past editions will be archived here. If you have friends and family without Internet access, a PDF with much of the same information can be found by clicking on “print edition.”

As part of this initiative, we also will offer updated information at this site. You can subscribe here to receive notification when something is updated.

Most importantly, this is your newsletter, so we invite you to help us decide on a name for it. Send your newsletter name suggestions to Casey Hans at hansc@aaps.k12.mi.us and we will consider them all. Once a name is selected, we will invite our high school art students to design a logo that we can use, as well.

Story ideas and information also can be sent to Casey at the e-mail address above.

Thank you for reading and for contributing to this new venture in The Ann Arbor Public Schools.

– Todd Roberts, Superintendent, Ann Arbor Public Schools
