Book Fair May 3 and 4

Posted On: April 25, 2017

Please join us at the Scholastic Book Fair May 3rd and 4th from 3 – 6pm.  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

The online Book Fair is available for an extended time from April 23rd to May 8th.

The Anderson School District #41 registered voters will be electing one Trustee to a three year term on the May 2, 2017 school election by mail ballot. Ballots will be mailed out by the Gallatin County Elections office on April 17, 2017. Following are the two candidates who have filed for the position:

Jaime June is a mother of three children and actively involved in the maternal health issues within our community. Jaime has a degree in Wildlife Biology from the University of California Davis and a follow up certificate of Lactation studies from the University of California San Diego. Currently Jaime works for the Billings Clinic Hospital in Billings and has a private practice in Bozeman as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

After graduating college Jaime was a restoration ecologist for the National Audubon Society in Winters California. There she worked in partnership with the Center for Land Based Learning to educate high school students about ecological processes and restoration. Working with these students was a wonderful experience, there were kids from rural schools, the inner city, as well as college towns. After getting married and starting a family Jaime and her family found their way to Montana in 2011. Jaime and her Husband Ron wanted their children to attend Anderson school due to its wonderful reputation. Now that her third child will be entering kindergarten in the fall Jaime feels compelled to offer more of her time to the institution. Jaime brings a very levelheaded approach to problem solving and organization. She has shown this in her work with the Montana Mental Health Collective as well as in mediating many projects with land owners and conservationists in her past job. Jaime offers a compassionate ear with a thorough research background that will help her make well guided decisions through appropriate education on the issues. Mostly Jaime would like to give back to the school that is taking such good care of her children.

Jack Huczek is the father of two Anderson School Students and a Senior Account Lead for CenturyLink. Jack has a B.S. in Business Management, and a MBA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. As a son of two 35- year public school teachers teaching in the heart of Detroit, Jack grew up influenced by giving back to the community through education and athletics. At a young age he developed a love for the sport of racquetball and became the most decorated junior racquetball athlete of all time. While earning his MBA he also maintained a Professional Racquetball Career representing HEAD/PENN Racquet sports on and off the court – becoming a 3- time World Professional Racquetball Champion. During this time Jack also gave back to the racquetball community serving as Vice-President of the US Racquetball Association and hosting coaching clinics that funded many non-profit organizations such as St Jude’s Hospital and Cancer Research. Jack is currently the Bozeman ambassador to USA Pickleball and hosts weekly community play open Pickleball events at Anderson Elementary and a local Church.

Jack wishes to serve on the Anderson School board because he wants to have an impact on the great community he lives in – and he believes, as his parents did, this starts with strength in education and sporting activity. When his family relocated to Bozeman they chose their residence based on being within the Anderson School District – and loved it so much they ended up right next door to the school! He’d like to help Anderson reach its full potential and continue to build on its exceptional reputation for generations to come. He specializes in delivering results and developing long lasting relationships.

Playing at the Emerson Cultural Center in Bozeman, MT

 Tickets are available at

Bozeman, Montana, March 2, 2017 – Disney’s The Lion King JR. is playing at The Emerson Cultural Center Friday, April 21, at 7:00 and Saturday April 22, at 12 noon and 7:00. The slightly abbreviated musical, designed for younger performers, is based on the Broadway production directed by Julie Taymor and the 1994 Disney film. The Anderson School cast contains approximately 80 students led by directors Laurie Kinna and Stephani Lourie.


In its 23rd year of producing full-length musicals, Anderson School has been filling up the Emerson with crowds that have grown to expect outstanding production qualities for shows including “Mary Poppins,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Beauty and the Beast.” The Lion King Jr. will not disappoint, as rehearsals and construction have already been under way for this exceptional project for months.  “Students of Bozeman, Mt  are chanting and singing in Swahili in three part harmony. It is chilling,” says director Stephani Lourie. “The sophistication of artistry regarding the set, light and costume design is unmatched by any of our previous productions, even “Mary Poppins!’ ”


The Lion King JR.tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colorful cast of characters including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa . The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.

Tickets are available on line at or at the door. They are $10.00 for the main floor and $7.00 for the balcony. For additional information, call Anderson School: 406-587-1305
