In addition, we have a limited number of openings in 1st and 4th grade for the second semester of this school year. To schedule a tour and obtain registration materials for these openings, please call Miss Ashleigh @ 727-298-2778. Enrolling your child this year will ensure that siblings are given preference for admission for the 2015-2016 Kindergarten class.
For 2015-2016 openings, tours are being scheduled throughout January and February - please call Miss Ashleigh to sign up for a tour. There will also be special Kindergarten Open House on Thursday January 22 from 6-7 pm. Prospective parents will be able to tour the school, and meet the Kindergarten teachers, other staff and the Principal. Please call to RSVP for the Kindergarten Open House so we will know how many families to expect. Light refreshments will be served.

Happy Holidays to all our ADV students, staff, and families!
We are back from Thanksgiving vacation and getting ready for the wonderful holiday season. We have three weeks packed full of learning and great activities before we go on our winter holiday vacation. Grades close on December 19 for Term 2 – report cards will be sent home January 14.
As I write this, Ms. Rose is getting her dance club students ready for their show on Tuesday December 9. The show will be at 6:30 pm at Dunedin Middle School. Go Dance Club! We loved the "Beauty and the Beast" Drama Club Show which was held on November 20. Congratulations to all of our Drama students and Mrs. Scullion for a wonderful and fun show.
Our annual winter shows are almost upon us! K-2 will present "December Gifts" on Wednesday December 17 and students in 3-5 will present "The 12 Days of Christmas" on Thursday December 18. Both shows will be at 6:30 pm at Dunedin High School. Our PTA will host the annual silent auction at both shows. The Silent Auction is the most important fundraiser for ADV every year. Please consider donating to the classroom baskets or to the general auction. I plan to do most of my Christmas shopping at the Auction!
To help make the shows most successful, there are some special schedule changes for that week. There will be no ELP for K-2 students the day of their show as they will be rehearsing at Dunedin High. They will be dismissed from Dunedin High at 2:45 pm. 3-5 students will be dismissed from school at 3:15 as usual and there will be ELP for 3-5 students. There will be no ELP for 3-5 students on Thursday, the day of their show. They will be dismissed from Dunedin High at 3:15. K-2 students will be dismissed from ADV at 2:45 and there will be ELP for K-2 students that day. Parents will be credited $20/day/child for ELP this week.
