Good Afternoon AOTMS Community,

Hopefully you are enjoying a well-earned Mother’s Day weekend!

Mother’s Day created in 1908 by Anna Jarvis is a widely celebrated holiday in the United States established by Woodrow Wilson in 1914.

While it is important to celebrate our mothers today– please be sure to celebrate your mom everyday for things she does for you.

It is a great day to be outside and create memories with mom.

Triple digits are around the coroner - stay hydrated!

Be vigilant on pool safety!


We are 8.5 days away from the end of the school year!  

We are entering the last full week to submit missing assignments to teachers.  Please continue to check Infinite Campus and Google Classroom to make this week productive.

Keep checking and feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher.

Let’s experience academic success with you and your child.  Kudos to those students who came to school yesterday to complete missing assignments.

Wed. May 15th will be an opportunity for students to complete missing assignments from 345 - 5p.


Attendance matters!

Keep pushing yourself to arrive on time each day for the remainder of the school year!

Time away from the classroom is time away from learning.


Please make sure that any breakfast entrees and/or lunch entrees that have been ordered are picked up each day.

By ensuring this it means no food goes to waste.

A message from theatre…

Come out and watch the stars

The AOT Theatre Department proudly presents our spring production - You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!, May 17/18 at 7pm and May 19 at 2pm. Tickets are $7, with a family pack of 4 available for $25. Tickets can be purchased directly from Mr. Y. Seating is limited and we did sell out the last show, so get your tickets soon - you won’t want to miss this delightful production! This is also a great way for students interested in theatre next year to see what they can expect from the class. For more information contact Mr. Y. at [email protected]
