First Fridays at AHMS
In our ongoing effort to increase neighborhood and zone awareness of all the fantastic things happening at Albert Hill Middle School, Principal Jones and the PTA are offering "First Fridays at AHMS". Our first "First Fridays" coffee will be held on Friday, November 2 from 7:30am-8:15am in the Media Center and will focus on the path to AHMS from the elementary schools. We chose this time in an effort to accommodate both working parents and also those with a second drop off. Principal Jones and members of the AHMS PTA will be available to answer questions, etc.
We hope you will feel free to share this date with parents who might be interested - and we will send you reminders of our topic and time each month.
For December, we will be focusing on the path from middle school to high school.
