Principal's Message

Dear Parents,
Dawn Wood

The 2020-2021 school year is off to a great start!  Our classrooms may look a bit different, however everyone is settling into their new routines and working hard to do their very best. I would like to thank our entire ACS community. Your support has made this possible. 

Below is some information you may find helpful:

Parent Teacher Conferences: Monday, November 16th has been set aside for Parent Teacher Conferences. Parents will have the opportunity to choose from a virtual conference, a phone conference, or an email correspondence from their child’s teacher. We will participate in a full day of conferences. There will be no school for students in grades k-6. More information will be coming home soon.

• Benchmark Testing: This year our students will be completing I- Ready diagnostic tests in ELA and Math. These tests will help determine what our students already know and what they will need to work on this year. Teachers will review the results with parents at conference time. 
Intervention Blocks: Each classroom teacher is providing intervention to their students. Intervention is typically a 30 minute block of time each day where teachers deliver extra help or enrichment in the various subject areas.
Remote students: Fridays will be our new material pick up day. Please call Mrs. Austin at extension 119 for any questions or concerns.
Open House, Fire Prevention, Veterans Day, and Halloween: We will continue to provide our students opportunities to learn and celebrate our annual school events. These events however will look different and may be offered virtually or in a way that meets the CDC guidelines. 
Birthday Parties and Celebrations: Unfortunately, at this time students cannot bring in treats from home. Our cafeteria staff is able to help provide birthday and holiday treats at a small cost. Please reach out to Mrs. Wilkins at ext 519
Bucket Fillers and Student of the Month: Our students are doing an awesome job following our core values and being SCOT strong. Be on the lookout for bucket filler recognition slips from their teachers. We also celebrated our September students of the month. Congrats to all our recipients!

• ACS website:  Be sure to periodically check our school website. It is filled with valuable information.

Please know my door is always open. You can contact me anytime and I will do my best to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you again for continued support. I look forward to working with you.
