Good Evening AOTMS Community,

Hope all is well with each member of the AOTMS family!

We are quickly coming to the end of a chilly month of January.  An unbelievable month that brought us a continuous cold breeze and snow!

Hope you continue to enjoy it!


This week I will take the 8th grade students who made the Principal and Superintendent’s list in quarter 2 to Panda Express!  It is a great time for me because I get to see familiar faces from quarter 1 that made one of the academic lists.  These students will travel during their lunch/recess time.

Have you checked your child’s grade(s) in Tyler SIS?  It is a great way for you and your child to set academic goals for the rest of the quarter.  We want our students to take ownership of their assignments and grades.  Please note they can check their grades 24-7.

Google Classroom can get you access to specific assignments and other pertinent teacher information.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to teachers via email if you have any questions    or concerns.  Success happens when we are all on the same page.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

If your child(ren) are struggling we desire to meet with you on February 8th & 9th.  We know that your child(ren) has potential and we want to help them realize academic success.  February 8th & 9th are ERD.  To continue that success we will use Saturday, February 11th as a day for tutoring and our students to make-up and missing work.  This session will take place from 9a - 1p.


The soccer season has come to an end and we want to congratulate the athletes, parents, and Coach Dunlap for their time, dedication and effort!  Thank you for never stopping giving it your all!

Basketball season is quickly approaching!  For those interested in playing boys and girls basketball there will be a mandatory meeting on Thursday, February 2nd @ 4p in the MPR.
I look forward to seeing you.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Character Building

We want our students to realize the importance of being a consistent student in academic studies and behavior.  It is not just the moments when you are being watched but it is more important when you are not being watched.  What will you do in the moments when eyes are not on you.  Thank you, parents for always being your child’s first and most important role model.  The team and I appreciate all you do to make this happen!
