7th Graders to get Chromebooks!
The Ankeny Schools Technology Task Force has been working to develop a vision and plan for the use of 21st century technology in our district called 1:1 Technology. One of the action steps that emerged from their work is a plan to deploy Chromebooks to all Ankeny seventh graders. We have scheduled parent meetings on Monday, March 2nd, at 5:00pm in the MAIN GYM (This is a change). These meeting are to help explain the program and answer any question that you might have. We send a mailing to you about the Chromebooks and the forms that will be needed in order to receive a Chromebook.  Please click here for a copy of the letter we mailed out. Click here for a copy of the forms that need to be returned.  Please sign and return the forms to your advisory teacher or to the office. All forms need to be turned in by March 12th.

Chromebooks are essentially laptops that use Google’s Chrome web browser as a vehicle to access Internet-based services. Chromebooks primarily use Google Applications (Apps), in addition to providing access to any available web-based resource or website. Currently our District uses Google Apps for Education, and each student and staff member has the capability of having a district-issued Google account.


Trivia Night for Friday, March 6th has been cancelled
Trivia Night that was planned for Friday, Mar. 6th from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm has been canceled.
Spring Picture Day
On Thursday, March 5, Parkview students will have their pictures taken by Lifetouch.  These pictures will be used for our student's IDs for next fall.  We are looking for volunteers to help line the students up for the photographers.  If you are interested in helping, please call the Parkview office at 965-9640. 
 
tdap Booster Required
Has your 6th grade child received their booster immunization for pertussis?  This is just a heads-up for all 6th grade parents for this coming fall.  The State of Iowa requires all 7th graders born after September 15, 2000, to have the booster "Tdap".  If the child does not receive this vaccine by October 15th, the State of Iowa is enforcing this law, and they will be excluded from school.  For free immunizations, call Polk County Health Department at 515-286-3798.
 
Second Semester 6-Week Reports Online for Grades 6-12
Secondary schools' six-week midterm grade reports are now available in Infinite Campus.  Midterm reports are not sent via mail, and no paper reports are sent until the end of the semester.  Parents and guardians may view midterm grades via Infinite Campus.  If you do not have an account in Infinite Campus, please e-mail portal@ankenyschools.org to start the process.
Please contact your student's respective teacher if you have questions regarding the midterm grade.
Ankeny Schools 2015-2016 calendar on hold:
Approval and publication of the Ankeny Schools 2015-2016 school calendar is currently on hold. Last month we received guidance from the Iowa Department of Education (IDOE) regarding new rules for school start dates. The district is currently reviewing the criteria to make a determination on next year’s calendar.   
 
In December, 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.  We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in publication may cause.

 

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.
