At John H. Amesse Elementary School, we ensure all learners achieve excellence in academics and the arts, while empowering kids, families and staff in our Montbello community to be diverse and equitable changemakers.
John H. Amesse Families,
It is almost time for school to begin. We have some great things planned for our John H. Amesse students and families this year! It all begins with making sure that your student is registered. Please feel free to register online at home at any time through Parent Portal. Link: https://myportal.dpsk12.org/
If you need support, we will have onsite registration support available on Thursday, August 3rd and Friday, August 4th from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Make sure that you have the information to log onto Parent Portal in order to support the registration process. If you have questions, please call the office. Office support staff will be available starting on Monday, July 31st from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. School supply lists will be available by next week as well.
In addition, please don’t forget to purchase your student’s uniform before the start of school on August 21st. There is information below regarding uniform ordering. Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions.
Principal, John H. Amesse Elementary School
As mentioned in our Roadrunner Rundown parent newsletter in May, we will have a school uniform for the 2023-24 school year. Great news! Our school uniforms are ready to order. Every student must have at least one John H. Amesse polo with a logo from our vendor in navy or light blue. Please visit the link below to place your order or contact the vendor at the contact information below. You can also go into the physical store to purchase the polo and pay in cash as well.
Address: 3930 Holly St., Denver, CO 80207
Please order the polo for your student in July to ensure that you are able to get your order filled prior to the beginning of the school year. Additional polos may be purchased from the vendor or from a local store (like Walmart) in navy or light blue without a logo. In August, the vendor and local stores may have shortages or delays due to high demand so place your order as soon as possible.
Here is a reminder of our uniform policy.
Mondays – Thursdays students will be expected to wear:
– a navy blue or light blue polo shirt (with or without the logo)
– jeans/khaki pants, shorts, or skirts that are blue, black or tan (with no holes.). Shorts and skirts should be no more than 3 inches above the knee.
On Fridays students will be expected to wear:
– any John H. Amesse t-shirt or (the navy or light blue polo shirt.)
– and to wear jeans or khaki pants, shorts or skirts that are blue, black or tan (with no holes.). Once again, shorts and skirts should be no more than 3 inches above the knee.
We anticipate that some families may need support with purchasing uniform shirts. If you are in need of support with purchasing uniform items, please reach out to the main office starting on July 31st. If your family would like to sponsor a family in need, please reach out to our Front Office as well.
