2017 Orientation Day Details!


Orientation Day is Tuesday, August 15th at the school.

When you pick up your child’s teacher assignment packet, available for pick-up beginning July 31st, you will receive a schedule that will explain when you need to attend class and/or grade level orientation meetings with the teachers. It is also important to visit the cafeteria this day between 8:00am and 2:00pm to fill out all school-related paperwork and pay associated dues. You should allow at least one hour for the cafeteria visit.


  1. Pay school fees (All Students) and laptop fees (Middle School Only) in advance: https://anchorageschool.cheddarup.com
  2. Order your school supplies online:  schooltoolbox.com
  3. Add money to your child’s lunch account at MySchoolBucks: www.MySchoolBucks.com
  4. Complete your child’s KHSAA Sports Physical Form: https://anchorageschool.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/sports-forms.pdf
  5. Complete your APTA membership form: OrientationDayFeeForm2017


  2. Many parents try to plan their visit around the classroom orientation meetings, but please keep in mind that if you have a Kindergartener, the Kindergarten orientation begins at 2:00pm. The cafeteria area will be closed after 2:00pm so getting to the cafeteria before your meeting time is very important!
  3. Childcare will be available in the school auditorium from 10:00am to 3:00pm, as the orientation meetings are usually for parents only.

2017 Newcomer Events!

There are some important dates coming up that are specifically for Newcomers to the school!

Newcomer School Tour and Reception (Wednesday, August 9th, at 6:00pm)

This is an opportunity for parents to tour the school, meet some of our wonderful staff and ask any questions you may have. The tour is immediately followed by a welcome reception hosted by the APTA. The reception takes place at the home of neighbors Jeff and Leslie Robinson, a short walk from the school. We encourage you to attend both events, as it is a great opportunity to meet and get to know other newcomer parents and the APTA board members.
