Students at ACRMS are on academic teams.
That means most students will travel with the same group for all of the core classes.
When we have a conference, you will meet with all of your child’s teachers and any other significant adults in your child’s school life.
Academic teams benefit the child, parent and teacher!
Students will get their schedules today.
Spanish will be offered only first semester. The class is six weeks long and is NOT required for 7th grade Spanish.
Students will rotate through all of the elective classes, called “Discovery,” unless they are in band.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask your child’s homeroom teacher.
This year BCS is offering free breakfast for all students.
We will walk students to all of their classes on the first day of school.
This year, students will have Discovery (elective) classes during fourth block (11:45-1:20).
Don’t worry about dressing out on the first day.
P.E. teachers will inform students when they need to start dressing out.
Uniforms will be required and will be sold today and for the next few weeks for $20.
Your child will use his or her agenda each day; please check it each night.
The agenda is a place where we will communicate with you often.
The agenda is also used as a hall pass, so it will need to be taken everywhere students go.
Buy one today for $5.00.
Students may have cell phones or electronics in their lockers, but we cannot be responsible if they are lost or stolen.
If a teacher sees or hears an electronic device, we have the right to take them and turn them in to the office for a parent to pick up (school policy).

Rocket Reading is called “Independent Study” on the schedule.
6th grade participates in Rocket Reading, which is a 25 minute time in which students can read a book of their choosing.
Students will also conference with their teacher and complete other reading related activities during this time.
Rocket Reading is a pass/fail class.
Car rider drop off is in front of the gym, NOT in front of the stairs to the media center or in the back lot.

Successful middle school students have parents who assist the student in gaining independence through small stumbles along the way, but realize that students will need support when they begin to “fall.” It’s appropriate for students to make mistakes as long as they learn from them.
Thank you parents for being here for the first important event of the 2012-2013 school year!
