Welcome to 2018 - 2019!!

04/03/2019: We are finally on the downhill run to the end of the school year. I can't believe it has gone by this quickly. But!! We still have lots of work to do. testing for middle school will begin around May 9th. Start studying now. After Spring Break, we will only have 31 school days remaining. This is "make or break" time for most of our students. Work hard so you can finish strong. No decision about next year will be made until school has finished and all final grades are complete. this usually occurs mid-June. 8th grade students do not have an automatic pass to 9th grade. If you don't pass the class, you could very well NOT get an opportunity to attend High School!!! Remember, It's Your Choice!! Make A Good One!


******************************************************************************

I am looking forward to a new year here at ACAS. I hope you are too and have the proper "Mind Set" planned for the year.

This is my 23rd year teaching science and my 13th year at the alternative school. Middle school can be a difficult time for most students. Keys to help you be successful are: Ask For Help; Study Every Night; Take Notes; Stay Out of Drama; and Do Your Best Work!

We are here to help you be successful, but you have to do your share to succeed!

Please feel free to contact your teachers and ask for help! Communication is the key!
