Globe covered in flagsYour world language teachers hope you are being safe, healthy and following the instructions provided by the different authorized organizations. We know these are  unprecedented times but we need to keep “Our Heads in the Game” and at ACMS we are a VERY strong family. We got this!
In an effort to keep you all connected to your world language teachers our WL Department would like to share a couple of tips to keep you learning through this crisis.

  1. Find a music genre that you enjoy in your native language and look for a similar artist/genre in the target language, try to get words from it while you are enjoying the rhythm. 
  2. Watch your favorite movie in the target language with English subtitles. Even a few minutes each day will help you improve your listening skills. Since you picked a favorite movie, you already know what it is about so it will be easier for you to follow.
    Remember: practice, practice practice… We miss you all, be safe and we hope to see you soon!
    With Love~ACMS WL Department

Hello Students,
Due to our current lifestyle situation caused by COVID-19, we must be mindful of our eating habits and not resort to a sedentary lifestyle. Please make sure that you are choosing healthy meals and avoid eating junk food snacks that is influenced by boredom. Please remember all the lessons we have taught you about nutrition. Be sure to eat fresh fruits when possible. Drink water and less artificial juices. Do not eat all your quarantine snacks all at once! Also, be sure to measure portion sizes for your meals.
During your extended time away from school, it is still important to be physically active. Try to get at least 30-60 minutes of physical activity each day while keeping the social distancing rules in mind.  Take breaks from sedentary activities such as video games and your phones and go exercise! Choose exercises and physical activity that you enjoy. You’ve got this!
Here is a great website that can give you a few ideas to get started American Heart Association.
Be Well~ Mrs. Calliste and Mr. LaValley

Anne Chesnutt Middle School HornetsStudent Union is available at ACMS! This program allows students to stay after school each week from Tuesday-Friday to work on individual tasks with our Instructional Coach, Mr. Holston. Students will receive a snack and then have time to work on missing assignments, SuccessMaker, projects, or receive additional instruction/tutoring on standards they are struggling with. In addition, there is reserved time at the end of each session to participate in a fun activity before being picked up at 4:15.  The smaller setting allows for more individualized attention and feedback to keep students on track with their learning. Parents who are interested in having their child attend may contact Student Services or their child’s homeroom teacher to get more details and sign up.

Has your child misplaced their required school agenda? Agendas may be purchased in the school store at a discounted price of $3.00. Agendas help students keep track of assignments, due dates, and act as a hall pass within the school. They also contain helpful information about ACMS. Purchase a new one now if you need one while supplies last. It would also be a good time to double-check with your child and see if they need any additional supplies for any of their new semester classes. A new semester might also mean new supplies to finish out the school year!
