Principal's Message

Dear Families,

We hope your child has a positive experience this school year. We are proud of the diverse community our school serves and continually look for innovative ways to provide rich learning experiences for our students. 

We value partnerships with families and look forward to working together as a team to ensure your child experiences success. If at anytime during the school year you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher or myself so we can assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

Important Information

  • School begins daily at 8:30AM. Students are not permitted to enter the building prior to this time as there is no supervision available. If you need supervision prior to 8:30AM, please enroll your child in our Latch Key program. Information can be found on our school web site.

  • As in the past, all transportation changes during the regular school year must be verified with a written note sent to school from the child’s parent/guardian and must be submitted by noon to the main office.
  • The price for breakfast is $1.45. The price for lunch is $2.30. Funds can be added to your child’s account online by visiting www.myschoolbucks.com. The free/reduced lunch applications are available on our school website. A new application must be completed each year to determine eligibility.

  • Please remember the traffic circle in the front of our building is reserved for bus traffic. Parents who are dropping off/picking up their children need to use the side parking lot accessed by the AAK Middle School main entrance.

  • We invite all parents to join the PTSA. Please contact the new PTSA President, Dora Richter, at potsdamcentralptsa@gmail.com  to find out how you can be more involved in your child’s education.

  • Stay informed of school events. Follow us on Facebook and be sure to sign-up for One Call Now which provides automated notifications to parents.

Kind regards,
