Good Morning AOTMS Community,

Hopefully you enjoyed a great Thanksgiving with family and friends!

It has been an amazing time to be outside and enjoy the cool, crisp fall weather.  Whether you are in the backyard, enjoying time at a park these are the times that make living in Arizona a fun time.  There are many things to do with the family outside –take time and enjoy those memories!  

The team and I look forward to sharing a memorable month of December with you and your child(ren).



We have approximately 4 weeks left in quarter 2.  Is your child current with all of their assignments in each subject?  Students always have the ability to check-in with their teachers as well as check their respective Google Classroom for detailed information about assignments.  It is a great way for them to take ownership in the waning weeks of the quarter.  

Please continue to follow-up with updated academic information by using Infinite Campus parent portal.  As a parent you can also reach out directly to teachers for more detailed information.

Please be on the lookout for important information in a separate message tomorrow regarding academics.

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions and/or concerns.


The first soccer game of the year is Monday, November 27th @4p at Pusch Ridge Academy located at 9500 North Oracle Road.  All student-athletes must have a current sports physical on file in the office prior to competition.  It is going to be an exciting first game of the season!  The team and I look forward to seeing you there and your continued support of AOTMS athletics.


Extra- Curricular Clubs

After-school clubs and activities are still taking place up to the beginning of the holiday break!  Please make sure that if your child(ren) needs to be in tutoring that they attend tutoring and not an after-school club.  After school clubs are a great way for our students to be social with one another but their academics remain primary.  If you are going to take your child out of a club to attend tutoring please make sure that your child communicates this information to the club sponsor.

Thanks for your support.


Yes, November will be over at the end of the week.  The week of December is sure to come in breezy!  Enjoy foods from the new menu next week.

A message from theatre…

“Coming December 15/16 at 7:00, the AOT Theatre Department presents: 20 Reasons NOT to be in a Play, a hilarious, high-energy production the students have been working hard on and is not to be missed. Advance tickets can be purchased in the office for $5 or at the door the evening of the performance. It is highly recommended to purchase your tickets beforehand to ensure you get a seat, as we have completely sold out in the past. Concessions will be available at the performance and all proceeds go to supporting AOTMS Theatre. We look forward to seeing you at this wonderful evening of theatre!”

Mark your calendar!

The best way to help others is to teach them they have the ability to help themselves.  Hope is a powerful tool. – Anonymous
