Summer Staff Transitions
This month we're pleased to announce several school-based promotions and moves among the administrative team at the Appoquinimink School District.
2015-16 MHS Parking Registration
We're looking for 1-2 host families for our Spanish/El Savadoran Interns

This fall, we will be welcoming two interns to our Spanish Immersion Program through the Amity Institute. Native speakers, who are also fluent in English, they will be learning about the education system in American Schools while providing cultural experiences to students & families in the Immersion Program at the Townsend Early Childhood Center. We are looking for host families for these two young ladies for a 6-12 month stay. This is a wonderful opportunity for a Townsend or TECC family, or an older student or community member who would benefit from the opportunity to hone their conversational skills.
Workshop: Supporting Your Child's Self Esteem
The University of Delaware Center for Disability Studies invites you to join them for a workshop where parents, teachers & caregivers can learn strategies to support their children’s social skills needs. Topics include: promoting optimistic thinking, responding to teasing and bullying, and flexibility in social situations.
FY16 Preliminary Budget Presentation
Finance Director Dr. Chuck Longfellow presented a copy of the District's Preliminary Budget for fiscal year 2016. Open this story if you'd like to view a printer-friendly version.
Can you give us 30 minutes?

We're trying to build our mentoring program for young people. If you can give us just 30 minutes once a week when school is in session, you can help unlock a young person's potential. Having a supportive adult (or teen) to talk with about school has been proven to: boost self-confidence, improve study habits, and increase coping skills & resilience. We will provide free training and background checks, coordinate the process of pairing you with a deserving student, and make sure the relationship proves to be rewarding to you both.
New Families: Join us for an orientation to the District on August 24!

On August 24, the Superintendent will host his annual New Parent Orientation. This district-wide event is for parents who are new to our school system and/or have a child entering school for the first time. Your printer-friendly postcard invitation appears below.
Bus Safety Brochure

Every day, 25 million American students ride a school bus to and from their school safely. In fact, children are nearly eight times safer riding on the school bus than with their own parents and guardians in cards. But even one accident is too much. So it's vitally important that you help us educate our students about the do's and don'ts of riding the bus.
Summer Reading Assignments: A grade by grade guide

Please be sure your child completes the assignment for the building/grade he or she will be entering in the Fall. District-wide reading assignments have been established for Grades 1-5. At the secondary level, the assignments vary by school. If you have any questions, please contact your student's school.
