This is Tom Childers contacting you from Antioch Elementary. I hope that everyone is looking forward to getting back to school. I would like to take a moment to thank our students, parents and staff for your incredible work with IXL. Our students have surpassed one million questions answered during the first semester. That is simply amazing! I plan to highlight the students who have lead their respective grade level with IXL and MyON reading usage. Students will be selected after the grading period ends.
On January 25th, the Antioch Ambassadors will host Color Wars. Each grade level is asked to dress in a specific color. The grade level with the most participation will earn an extra recess period. The designated colors are as follows:
5th - Blue
4th - Red
3rd - Green
2nd - Purple
1st - Orange
Kinder - Black
The third grading period will end on Thursday, January 25th and school will be closed on Friday, January 26th for a teacher workday.

On February 2, 2018, all students in grades 3-5 will participate in a field trip to Weddington High School to watch a play. Antioch Students will be performing "Peter Pan". A field trip permission form will come home this week and there will be no charge to students. Each classroom in grades 3-5 will need one chaperone to arrive at Antioch by 11:00 am on 2/2/18 to ride the bus and supervise students. Please contact your child's teacher if you are willing to help. You must be an approved volunteer for this event.
Kindergarten registration is just around the corner. The registration process will begin this year on February 1st.

Antioch will once again offer the dual language program, however the lottery process will not begin until the UCPS Board of Education has voted on the student realignment plan.
Thank you for supporting our school - working together as one team on one mission, we are meeting needs, challenging minds and celebrating accomplishments.
Until next time… Have a great evening!
