CAL POLY LEARN BY DOING LAB FIELD TRIP!
We're excited to announce that all 7th graders will have the chance to travel to Cal Poly this spring to take part in their Learn by Doing labs. This is an opportunity Atascadero Middle School 7th graders have enjoyed many times over the past several years and we're glad to be going back. Students will be attending with their HOMEROOM class on one of these three dates: Feb 3, Feb 10, Mar 3. About 100 kids will attend each day (300 total). Look for permission slips and information soon.
SAVE THE DATE! If your student earned a grade point average of 3.8 or above for the first semester of the 2016-2017 school year watch for a letter (via snail mail) inviting you to our evening Awards Assembly on Thursday, February 9th at 6:00 P.M. in the Baro Gym.
