Yellow School Bus In July, Cumberland County Schools sent out a survey for you to indicate whether your child would participate in Blended or Remote Learning once we move to Plan B.  This survey also provided the school system with information regarding your transportation needs once we do go to Plan B.  It is imperative that we have accurate information from all students.  If you did not complete this survey in July or if you are unsure if you completed this survey please complete this survey by Wednesday, September 9th.  Please note that this survey will be used to determine which students will need transportation provided from the school.  If your child is attending ACMS on a choice application but you are not in the 71st attendance district you will not receive transportation.

Hornet looking straight onOur seventh-grade team has been done a great job of starting the new virtual school year! In ELA the 7th Grade will discuss “plot” and the students will be introduced to Canvas and the use of hyperdocs, and Shorthand. Next week in Math the students will begin our first unit on Scale Drawings. In this unit students will learn to understand and use the terms “scaled copy”, “to scale”, “scale factor”, “scale drawing”, and “scale”. In Social Studies the students will begin our first unit on Think Like a Historian. In this unit, we will discuss primary and secondary sources and their relevance in history. The students will have their first vocabulary quiz. In Science, we completed our first virtual lab and the students seemed to enjoy it. Please stay tuned for more lab announcements. Next week we will begin our weather unit with the Water Cycle. Please make sure that your student is familiar with their weekly vocabulary.
