Annual Welcome Letter

Dear ALMS Community Members,

Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year! We are grateful to work with our fabulous students, talented staff members, and incredible families. Thank you for your continued collaboration as we work to support our students on their quest to become their personal best!

Here at Albert Leonard Middle School, we are dedicated to ensuring the safety of our entire school community in an academically challenging, enriching, and supportive learning environment. In particular, we have devoted time at ALMS to promote the up-stander mentality (as opposed to the by-stander mentality) when it comes to bullying.

We thank STOMP Out Bullying (CEO/Founder - Ms. Ross Ellis) and The New York Jets Community Relations Department for recognizing our entire school community for our efforts, over the last four years, to eradicate bullying in our school. This year, we are highlighting a weekly Up-stander of the Week. Please join me in congratulating Roan Etkin as our first recipient. Roan is a student leader who cares deeply about our school community and putting an end to bias and discrimination in our society. Roan received two tickets to October 29th’s New York Jets Game and was featured as our first “tweet” on our new Twitter account (#ALMSNewRo). Please follow us if you are using Twitter!

Our PTA is actively involved in all aspects of our school, and we are a better school as a result of our partnership and strong home/school connection. This past year, Nancy Podhradsky and Kim Castellano served as our PTA Co-Presidents. We thank Ms. Podhradsky for her two years of service as our PTA President and will miss her this coming year! We also thank Ms. Anne Todd for joining Ms. Castellano as our 2017/2018 PTA Co-Presidents, and look forward to a great year of working together.

Cheers to a wonderful school community and a phenomenal 2017-2018 school year! Please check our website and feel free to call or email with any specific questions you may have.

With appreciation,

John Barnes

ALMS Principal
