Dear Knight Families,
PBIS: We are tying our 4th quarter goal into our building wide reading goal. Our goal is that 80% of our students will meet their individual reading goal for the year. If they are unsure of what their goal is they need to ask their teacher or Mrs. Patterson. Hopefully they enjoy this goal and get the chance to read some good books! Students can earn individual reading awards based on the number of books they read. Each level comes with its own rewards! Pick up a good book and help us reach our goal!
Currently we have read at 14,085 books. Keep reading and help us reach our school-wide goal!
8th Grade promotion: Promotion will be held on Thursday, May 26 at 6 pm. The promotion ceremony will be held at Wilson Field (the Football Field) at Arthur Lovington Atwood-Hammond High School. We will be sending more detailed information out the closer it gets. In the event of bad weather, our rain date will be Saturday, May 28 at 10:00 am.
Track: If you have not been following our track team I just want to give a huge shout out to them. They are having a wonderful season and have been improving each meet. Congratulations to our JH track teams as they all brought home championships at the Arthur Invite last weekend.
D.A.R.E.: We were excited to have our D.A.R.E. program back again this year for 5th grade. The students have been working hard and completed the program. We will be holding a D.A.R.E. graduation for our 5th grade students on Thursday, April 28 at 2:30 pm. This event will be held in the cafeteria. 5th grade students, parents, and grandparents are invited to attend the graduation.
April 27 we get the honor and privilege of celebrating our amazing secretary, Mrs. Fleming. She is the glue that holds our school together!
May 2-6 is Teacher Appreciation week. We are blessed with a dedicated, wonderful staff at AHGS. I invite you to join me in letting the teachers know how much they are appreciated !
We also get the privilege of celebrating National School Nurse day on May 11. Ms. Greger goes above and beyond at our school to make sure the kids' needs are met. She fills in at the school in all capacities! We are so grateful to have her on staff!
Please help me in celebrating these wonderful staff members!
Have a wonderful weekend!
