A Message for 8th Grade Students interested in Algebra and Living Environment
At ALMS, students may have the opportunity to earn high school credits by taking Algebra and Living Environment during their 8th grade year of middle school. It is important to note, students who begin these courses will have their grades recorded on their OFFICIAL high school transcript.
Please note, placement decisions are based on a collaborative effort which includes input and recommendations from the 7th grade teacher teams. Report card grades, homework completion, overall class participation and behavior are all considered when making selections for these advanced courses. Students also take an Algebra Placement Test at the end of seventh grade to determine their overall readiness. The selections are led by our content area department chairs.
If you have any questions pertaining to your child's class program for September, please contact:
Mathematics Chair - Mr. John Pratt (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Science Chair - Ms. Marselle Heywood (email@example.com)
We hope you enjoy the summer and look forward to seeing you in September!!!
Congratulations to our STEP Team who took 2nd place in The Nationals in Daytona, Florida this past Spring. Great job!

MODEL UN CLUB TAKES NEW YORK: The Model UN Club participated in the 10th Global Classrooms International Middle School model United Nations Conference, the largest of its kind. Thirty students traveled to New York City and attended opening ceremonies in the United Nations General Assembly Hall. It was exciting for students to be able to be in a place where world leaders have spoken and tried to tackle global problems. Students researched their assigned countries and topics prior to the conference and were eager to use their knowledge to work with other students to resolve some of the challenging problems facing the world. They spent two days in committee and developed promising resolutions and had fun in the process. Out of almost 1700 students, four Albert Leonard students were recognized for their efforts in their respective committees. Dylan Klein and Jack Rieger received Honorable Mention Best Delegation while Carly Rieger and Lisbet Trinidad were honored with the Outstanding Delegation award. We are proud of all of our delegates for their hard work. We look forward to returning next year.
Monthly Metro Cards are due prior to the first of each month. Metro Cards are sold 5 days prior to the end of the month. The last school day of the month is the last day to pay.

monitored, and safe.
Inside the CSDNR CLOUD students will be able to utilize secured email, word processing,

discussion boards-all secured and inside the CSDNR CLOUD. Students will not be able to email or
communicate outside the CSDNR CLOUD. Students will be monitored to make sure that they utilize
these tools responsibly and for the purpose of teaching, learning and communications. Access to email,
