Parents: Please take the School-Year Calendar Planning Survey -
Each year, Ankeny Schools’ staff, administration and Board representatives meet to discuss and plan the school calendar. Part of that planning includes surveying parents regarding their preferences and using that feedback to guide our decisions through the process.

We are beginning our planning process for the 2015-2016 school calendar, and would like to invite parents to take our brief nine-question, multiple-choice survey found at the following link:

Picture Retake Day is October 24th
Picture retakes at East Elementary have been scheduled for Friday, October 24th. This is for students who were absent when pictures were taken in September, for those who forgot their money on picture day, or if their pictures were defective. For a defective picture retake, the entire photo package must be returned to school on or before October 24th and handed to the photographer at the time of the retake. If you require a Lifetouch order form they are available in the office. Payment must accompany the order form to receive photographs. If you have questions please call the East office at 965-9660.
