For the past four years, the Anderson School Parent Council has hosted a Grandparent’s Day the Tuesday before Thanksgiving break. The event has become very popular with grandparents, community members and students. Many grandparents and community members from all over the Gallatin Valley and United States plan their Thanksgiving vacation around this opportunity to meet and greet their grand and great grandchildren’s teachers and get a firsthand look at their classroom.
After registering, grandparents were treated to coffee and sweet treats made by the Anderson Parent Council. Next, they went to their grandchild’s classroom and participated in several learning activities. Lunch was a big hit thanks to Mrs. Sally Donch, Anderson’s Food Service Manager, and the excellent kitchen crew. Roast pork loin with currant sauce, smashed garlic potatoes with green beans and wheat rolls made up the tasty menu. Many thanks to the Anderson Parent Council for the planning and preparation of this well attended event. Maia Johnson continues to be the significant APC member that utilizes her remarkable organizational and leadership skills. A special thank you to APC members for ALL they did. We are looking forward to next year’s Grandparents’ Day. (more…)

Tuesday – December 3rd - 12:30 – 7:00 pm
Thursday – December 5th - 3:00 – 7:00 pm
Your child(ren) will be bringing home a list after they have previewed the books.
When you visit the Book Fair, please consider presenting a special gift to your child’s classroom. We’ve asked teachers to fill out a Classroom Wish List so you’ll know exactly which books they think would make a real contribution to their students’ knowledge and imagination. The books will become a permanent part of the classroom library. As a token of appreciation, every gift will be recognized with a bookplate identifying your family or child as the benefactor.
All Book Fair purchases will benefit our school because proceeds will be used to purchase books for the library media center.
If you’re all booked up during Book Fair week (or just want to keep shopping), be sure to visit the Book Fair online at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/andersonschool. The online Book Fair is available for an extended time from November 21st to December 11th.
- Find an expanded selection of books for the whole family—preschool to adults
- All orders ship to school for FREE and each purchase benefits our school

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! The Learning Community at Anderson School is thankful for many things. Most recently, our parents, students and teachers in 7th and 8th grade were very involved with planning the annual carnival and haunted house. It is always impressive to see how they come together as a team and work for the common good of meaningful school fundraisers. A heartfelt thanks for your endless efforts!
End of First Trimester and Parent/Teacher Conferences
The end of the first trimester is Monday, November 25th. Report cards will be sent home that day and we encourage you to review them before attending parent conferences on Tuesday, December 3rd and Thursday December 5th. All of you will be receiving notice when your conference will take place. On Tuesday, December 3rd, conferences will run from 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm with an early dismissal at 12:30 pm that day for your children. On Thursday, conferences will run from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm. It is the first time this year that teachers have the opportunity to formally share their students’ academic progress with you. Please take time to have a discussion with your child/ren before the conference to be aware of their strengths and those areas where they may need additional help. (more…)
