Principal's Notes

We are so excited to start our third year at ACMS.  Our current enrollment is 644 students. We welcome them to a year packed with fun learning activities.


We are in need of para-professionals at ACMS!  If you or anyone you know is interested in working at a great place on school days ONLY, for 29.5 hours per week, please contact us at ACMS.


Safety is our TOP priority.  Please follow these guidelines when dropping off and picking up at ACMS.


 Parent Drop off is on the SOUTH side or FRONT of the school.


The only way to enter the drop off lane is off of 183rd and Summitt Drive.  Right in FRONT of the school is an EXIT ONLY. DO NOT ENTER.


Students should get out of vehicles on the curb or school side between the fire hydrant and the flapole.  This drop off area is marked by cones.


If you choose to wait in the parking lot and not in the pick up line, you must enter the parking lot and PARK IN A PARKING STALL.  Do not create a second pick up line in the parking lot. Driving through and exiting the parking lot is ONE WAY traffic in the same direction as the drop off line.


Bus drop off and pick up is on the NORTH side or BACK of the school.


Students who walk home may exit either door, the North or South.  Students must then cross 186th street at either Summitt Drive or Lincoln Road.  Walkers should NOT cut through the yards of neighbors.


LUNCH MONEY CAN BE DEPOSITED AND ACTIVITY PASSES CAN BE PURCHASED On-Line at www.gretnaschoolspay.org.  The link is on the website.


We are here to help.  Call the office with any questions.  402-332-3866.





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!!
