Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is hard to believe that we are in the 2nd nine weeks!

Your child will bring home an ISTEP information page and a letter from me this week.  The school has not yet received ISTEP scores, but you will be able to log in to view your child's scores beginning on Monday, Nov. 9th.  The process to request a re-score has changed.  You, the parent, must do this online and the deadline is Nov. 13th..  We will have a computer available in our office for parents without access.

Our 16th annual Veterans Day Breakfast and Program are this Friday.  Veterans will be served breakfast from 7-8:00 in our cafeteria.  The program will begin at 8:00 in the gym.  

We will host Ken Johnson, November 10th at 2:00 for an all school assembly.  Ken is a Former Cincinnati Bengals Defensive End who now speaks for SportsWorld.  His message to our students is You're not born a winner; You're not born a loser; You're born a chooser.

Our picture re-take day is Friday, November 13.  Please send your child's picture packet back on this day if you were not happy with your child's photos.

Thank you for your continued support of Angola Middle School.  We are once again asking for your help as we complete a process that will help make our school even better.  On Thursday, November 19, and Friday, November 20, a panel of 4-5 educators will be visiting AMS.  The purpose of their visit is called an “External Review,” and it is part of the accreditation process.

The staff at AMS has worked hard this past year to collect data, artifacts,and written summaries of how the school meets the five standards for AdvancED accreditation.  The five standards are:

  • Purpose and Direction

  • Governance and Leadership

  • Teaching and Assessing for Learning

  • Resources and Support Systems

  • Using Results for Continuous Improvement

On Thursday, November 19th we are looking for participants to meet with our visitors to talk about AMS.  The meeting will be from 3:15-4:15.  Please contact me if you are interested.

Thanksgiving break is Nov. 25-27.

Thank you for your continued support!

Ann Rice, Principal
