Principal's Notes

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful families who donated items to our Teacher Appreciation Week celebration.  Our teachers are the best and your generous support is so appreciated!! Words of thanks and thank you notes from parents and students are absolutely priceless.  We love your kids and our school!!


At the end of March and on into April, we will begin state testing called NSCAS testing.  In grade 8, our students will take three tests. We will test math, science and reading ELA (English/Language Arts).  In grades 6 and 7, students will take two tests, math and reading ELA. The tests will be very similar to the MAP tests the students took earlier in the school year.


For our 7th and 8th graders, track practice will begin at the end of March.  An email will be sent out on Friday, March 8 containing the sign up link and practice/meet information.


The year has flown by and we have just three more months of quality learning time with your students.  We will make every moment count. Thanks for sharing your children with us!!


This is a link to an informative video on vaping done by schools in the Grand Island area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQldNPOqUrE This is just one of the safety resources that can be found on our website under Parent / Student Resources.


Please do not enter the DO NOT ENTER right in front of the school. Take the time to go through the drop off loop and keep our students safe.  We do have parents who need to use the handicap parking spaces to drop off students who have special needs.


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!!


 



 

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.
