Intergenerational Day 2019!

Grade 5 students, parents and grandparents

Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and siblings visited Andover Elementary on the day before Thanksgiving to celebrate Intergenerational Day!  Each year, AES opens its doors to all of our extended families and invites them into the classrooms.  The students make presentations, enjoy craft activities, play games and share their classrooms with their families.  It's a very special day here in Andover and has become a Thnksgiving tradition.  We are extremely thankful for our families, students and staff!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Unity Day 2019!

2 Student Council Emcees

Andover Elementary’s Student Council planned a special Unity Day event that took place for the first time at AES on Friday.  Unity Day is an annual event that promotes joining together to create healthier communities through kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. It was started by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in 2011 and is now celebrated around the world.  Our Unity Day event included a march complete with posters and chants, student-led skits, videos, music, a flash mob, unity chain and a unity pledge. Special thanks to our Student Council for their idea to bring this meaningful event to Andover, their planning and their execution. 

Happy Veterans Day!

Father receiving flower from daughter

Andover Elementary School Students and Staff celebrated our Veterans on Friday in advance of Monday's Federal Holiday.  Our students made cards, recited poems, sang songs and shared essays with our special guests.  Mr. John Gasper, U.S. Army and retired AES teacher, spoke of patriotism and teamwork.  Each Veteran received a bundle of cards, a flower and a booklet of student essays.  We are extremely grateful for their service to our country.  Be sure to visit the photo gallery inside!

Snow Day

Snow Daze!

Snow arrived early this year and our students have truly enjoyed being outside and playing! From snowmen to snow angels to snow forts and giant snow boulders, recess has been a blast these last three days. As you know, we try to get outside every day. Be sure to send your children with hats, gloves, boots and snow gear.
