It’s time to clean out your closet!  Project Fresh Start, sponsored by Ankeny Schools Community Education Department, is collecting gently-used and new Prom and bridesmaid dresses for their annual dress giveaway in March. The gowns will be made available to students in eleventh and twelfth grades who plan to attend their junior/senior Prom.
If you’d like to contribute, please bring your donation to the Community Education office, 306 SW School St., from now until March 2.

Dresses will be distributed March 9-14 at the Neveln Center, 406 SW School St.
  • Monday-Friday: 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9:00 a.m.-Noon
Students are not charged for the dresses, and only school names (not recipients) are recorded.

If you have questions about the annual giveaway, please contact Mr. Kissinger at dkiss806@juno.com or Ankeny Community Education at 289-3960.

National World War II Museum Blog to Display AHS Student Posters
 US History students from Andrew Bouskas' classes at Ankeny High School will have World War II propaganda posters, which they created as a part of their class, displayed on the National World War II Museum blog in the near future.  Read more about their posters here.  
School Calendar Approval Process on Hold Pending IDOE Guidance:
 Approval and publication of the Ankeny Schools 2015-2016 school calendar is currently on hold pending guidance from the Iowa Department of Education (IDOE) regarding new rules for school start dates. This guidance is expected in January, after which the school district will continue its calendar approval process and announce the availability of the school calendar to parents.  The IDOE has informed school districts that they will not automatically grant waivers to start the school year early, as in the past.  This clearly has great implications for Ankeny Schools due to the high percentage of students who earn post-secondary dual credits through Advanced Placement (AP) courses.  Additional guidance from the IDOE is expected in January. We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in publication may cause.
Classes to be in session on April 24 snow make-up day:
 Due to classes being cancelled for inclement weather on January 7, Ankeny Schools will use the April 24 “Built in Snow Day” shown on the district calendar to make up the missed day.  Instead of being a day off from school, regular classes will be in session and students will attend school on Friday, April 24.

Take appropriate steps to help keep Ankeny students and schools healthy -
You may have noticed a number of news reports lately about the flu.  Flu season is definitely upon us, and our nurses want to remind everyone of procedures that can help minimize the spread of flu.
On behalf of all Ankeny Schools students and staff, thank you for taking time to follow these guidelines and help to keep our schools healthy.
