Feedback Needed:
Asynchronous Friday's During
2021-2022 School Year:

One insight we gained from the pandemic was that having Asynchronous Friday's allowed teachers to focus on quality planning and professional development. It gave our students the space to pause, catch up on work, practice current skills, and advance ahead.

Due to this important learning, we are considering the idea of initiating Asynchronous Friday's once a month throughout the upcoming school year at Amana.  

We would love parent feedback and input around this idea. Please share any thoughts, questions, or concerns below. Thank you for your partnership as we continue to iterate and improve!
Upcoming Report Cards:

Please note: report cards will be available to view on June 6th and transcripts on June 10th in the parent portal on Infinite Campus. Please send any questions or concerns to Thanks!
Congratulations, Amana Academy!

Thank you to all our students, staff, and parents who took part in our 15th Year Anniversary party, Celebrations of Learning showcase, 5th & 8th Grade Passages presentations, Kindergarten Graduation and Drive-through, 8th Grade Promotion and Drive-through, AND everyone who helped us through the process of getting STEM re-certified.

Great job, Amana crew!
