Dear Rising 6th Grade ALMS Family Members,

It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome you to the world of middle school. We look forward to meeting our new class of scholars, and partnering with you to ensure their success. Welcome to our ALMS family.

We will be facilitating our family orientation session on May 7th in the ALMS main auditorium. We will be opening doors for all attendees at 6:45 pm, and will begin our program promptly at 7:00 pm. After the program in the auditorium, we will be facilitating school tours. Based on the high number of attendees, we ask family members to please refrain from bringing students to the evening family orientation session. All students will be visiting ALMS with their elementary schools as follows:

- Ward Visit 5/11 (during school day)
- Webster & Jefferson Visit 5/18 (during school day)
- Davis Visit 5/22 (during school day)
- Spanish Speaking Session for Families and Students (during school day)

Please plan to attend this important orientation session. The home to school partnership is paramount and we are excited and grateful to work with you. Together, we need to ensure we are communicating the same expectations to students as they prepare to transition into a whole new world of learning, exploration, and growth. Middle school here they come!

I look forward to meeting you and appreciate the opportunity to serve as your principal.

With enthusiasm and gratitude,

John Barnes

ALMS Principal
