Principal's Notes

 

February Principal’s NOTES:


We had a great week celebrating KINDNESS in our school. The students have enjoyed our dress up days.  We continue to focus on KINDNESS on a daily basis.


Parent Teacher Conferences were well attended!  Our students love showing off their academic successes to the ones they LOVE the most.  Thank you for the support you give your students.


At Aspen Creek Middle School, safety is our top priority.  Please work with us to follow our drop off and pick-up procedures and also join us in communicating these expectations to your children.


Parent Drop off is on the South side of ACMS.  Parents should line up in the drop off line, next to the school.  Creating your own drop off line in the parking lot or along Summit Drive is unsafe.  The line moves quickly, so please be patient.  Drop off begins at 7:45 AM. The line generally moves most quickly prior to 8:00AM.  We all have places to be and NONE of us are too busy to take the safety of our students seriously and make safety our top priority.  


Students who ride the buses should exit the NORTH or back doors.  It is never SAFE to drive around a school bus that is stopped for loading and unloading children.  Be observant of the STOP signs on buses and of children around bus stops.  


Illness has hit us!  If a student has a fever or is vomiting, please keep him or her home until he/she is symptom free for 24 hours.


-It will be easier for your child to get up on time for school if he/she has had at least nine hours of sleep.  Set a reasonable bedtime, and make sure he/she puts away electronic devices so he/she isn’t tempted to stay awake to read messages or play games.

January has arrived with a full winter weather feel.  The kids are back to school and our halls are buzzing with excited, friendly chatter.  We love the energy as the students and teachers interact.


Our “LOST AND FOUND” is FULL, FULL, FULL!!  If your middle school student seems to be missing items, send him or her into the office to take a look.  We may have what your student is missing.


Girls Basketball sign up is currently in progress for girls in grades 7 and 8.  Wrestling sign-up will be taking place during the month of January for boys in grades 7 and 8.


Student Led Parent- Teacher Conferences will take place on Feb. 7th and 12th.  You will receive an email prompting you to select an appointment time with your student’s team of teachers.  Report Cards from Semester 1 are accessible under parent-student records. We are anxious to begin a second semester of learning opportunities.


We are thankful on a daily basis to work with kids and parents at ACMS.  Thanks for being a valued part of your student’s educational team!!
