Message from the Principal

April 3, 2020

Dear Abington Middle School Community,

I hope that this message finds you healthy and well. It is hard to believe that today, Friday, April 3, 2020 is day 16 of missing school due to this pandemic. I shall start by telling all of our students just how much the teachers miss them. I get messages from teachers every day, expressing how much they miss the classrooms full of students and the conversations they have with them. I agree whole heartedly with the sentiments of AMS staff. I miss the kids, I miss my staff, and I miss the excitement of the middle school day. While the science is clear, we must continue to practice social distancing in order to minimize the impact of this virus, this is not easy on anyone.

This morning, Superintendent Schafer sent a communication about the new remote learning expectations. I want to acknowledge a few items as we embark on this remote learning journey together. 

  • Students will receive information about learning opportunities through Canvas. Canvas is a learning management system that we have used for the past two school years; all AMS students have had some experience with Canvas. Parents can access the student’s Canvas account by using the link on the left-hand side of the APS web page and entering the student’s username and password. This is the same username and password that students use to log into school computers and parents use when accessing Aspen. Teachers will post information by 8:30 AM each Monday.

W.A.V.E. was developed by a committee of teachers and students over the past school year, and will become the driving principles that help make Abington Middle School a great place to learn and grow.
