From the Principal
Newsletter for September 2019
Parents, Guardians, and General Abbott Community,
What a wonderful start of the year we have had so far! There is rich energy in the air, and students are working hard, demonstrating respect towards each other and in their classrooms. Teachers are collaborating and creating rigorous lessons and projects for your push your students forward!
Welcome Back Assembly!
All Abbott students took part in an assembly led by school administration and counselors! Students were engaged by our new FALCON cheer (When I say Abbott, you say FALCONS), and we had shouting and hulu-hoop competitions. The majority of the assembly was spent discussing our expectations for the school year in terms of student behavior, cell-phone policy, and dress code.
LET’S GO FALCONS!
Fall sports have started with Flag Football, Girl’s Volleyball, and Golf! Our students are practicing after school and during lunch and are prepared to WIN it all this year! There will be kick-off celebration with the ABBOTT FALL SPORTS NIGHT ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th. AT 5:30 PM in the GYMNASIUM!
Special Thanks to PTA Board member, Jenna Carson and athletic director, Dennis Clement for all their hard work and dedication to this program.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT
All I can say is WOW! What a great turnout with many families experiencing a day in the life of their children. As they followed their children’s schedules, they met with teachers and heard about classroom expectations.
Starting on 9/16, we will start offering a HW club after school on Monday and Thursdays, from 3 – 4 PM. Busses will be available for drop-off on those days.
Looking forward to another fun-filled month of learning!
---Mr. Packman, Principal of Abbott Middle School
