Message from the Principal

Good Afternoon,

MCAS testing for grades 5 and 6 resumes on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 and will continue through Friday, April 26, 2019.. Please see the MCAS testing schedule below of specific dates for each grade level and subject.

Grade 5 April 23 ELA - Session 1
            April 24 ELA - Session 2
Grade 6 April 25 ELA - Session 1
            April 26 ELA - Session 2

Grade 8 students have met with Mrs. McDermod and guidance counselors from Abington High School to discuss and make their elective selections. Course selection and academic level placements will then be sent home for parent/guardian review and signature. Mrs. McDermod is available to help any student or parents/guardians that may have questions. All forms should be returned to Mrs. McDermod in the Guidance Office.

The Abington Middle School 8th Grade Semi Formal dance will be held at the Frolio on Friday, May 31, 2019 from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM. The theme is "A Night in Paris". Grade 8 students wishing to attend will be able to purchase tickets for $10.00 - which will be sold a few weeks prior the event during lunch.

Any 7th and 8th grade parents wishing to help with this event should sign up on the Facebook page: AMS Semi-formal volunteers 2019.
CORI'd volunteers are needed to help plan, set up and run the dance. We will also be looking for donations of cases of water (small bottles), "Nut Free" individual or single serving snacks and candy. If you are interested in donating items, please email RNDenise1215@aol.com.

Have a safe and restful vacation,
Mr. MacCurtain
