ALL-STATE HONOR BAND
The Nebraska State Bandmasters Association (NSBA) sponsors an “All-State” Honor Band for students at the 8th grade level.  Over 400 students statewide audition for a position in this 82-member group.  This year ACMS has 13 students who will audition the week of October 9th.  Results from the auditions will be posted on the NSBA website (www.nsbama.org) in early November. Good luck to all who auditioned!
SECOND PLACE
On Saturday, September 16th, the ACMS and GMS Eighth Grade Bands combined to participate in the AppleJack Parade competition in Nebraska City. The combined band finished in 2nd place making this the 16th consecutive year that the 8th Grade Band has placed in the top three middle school bands at this event. Congratulations to all of our Eighth Grade Band members from both ACMS and GMS!

All visitors will have to be buzzed in during school hours, at the south entrance. Building doors will be locked each day at 8:10 a.m.
To enter ACMS, visitors will have to identify themselves at a video intercom system and a secretary or other designated staff member will have to grant them access. Once inside, all visitors will still have to check in/out with the front office and wear a visitor badge while in the building.

LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY?

If your student needs to leave school during the day for an appointment, please be sure to call ahead (402-332-3866) so the office can issue him/her a pass first thing in the morning. Issuing passes ahead of time helps to eliminate interruptions the classroom with calls to retrieve students at the last minute. Thank you for your help. Parents do not need to enter the building. Students may sign out independently, watch for parents to arrive, and then exit the south doors.

Update your records

 

If any of your family information changes during the school year, please log in to your Parent-Student records and update your child’s Student Verification page.  If you have questions, please call the office: (402) 332-3866.
