Message from the Principal

September 14, 2016

Dear Families and ALMS Students,

We hope everyone is having a great start to the school year. We are looking forward to seeing you at our annual Meet the Teacher Night on September 21st. Doors open at 6:45 pm and we will begin at 7:00 pm sharp in the ALMS auditorium. Family members will have the opportunity to experience an abbreviated student schedule and meet the teachers working with their children. On September 28th, we hope to see you at our annual Co-curricular Night beginning at 7:00 pm with doors opening at 6:45 pm. You will have the opportunity to learn about our after school clubs and student enrichment programs. In addition, we will have folks ready to sign anyone up for Home Access that has not yet been able to do so.

We hope to see you at our first PTA meeting taking place on October 5th at 7:00 pm in the ALMS Library. All attendees will have the pleasure of meeting our two new assistant principals! Please join me in welcoming Mr. Daniel Goldberg and Mr. Patrick Keevins to ALMS. Both Mr. Keevins and Mr. Goldberg are excited to be at ALMS, and to lead ALMS to reach our full potential. Mr. Goldberg will be grade supervisor for grades six and eight. Mr. Keevins will be grade supervisor for grade seven and our self-contained special education classes. They are both talented, smart, and eager to serve the ALMS community and to get the school year up and running.

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 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 Ms. Ross Ellis) and The New York Jets (Mr. Jesse Linder) for coming to ALMS, last school year, and for recognizing our entire school community for our efforts as we work to eradicate bullying in our school. We had a special day with Eric Decker and Jessie James Decker visiting the school and speaking about bullying from both a by-stander and victim's perspective. Although we had a full audience, you could have heard a pin drop as these personal stories were shared with our engaged students. It is quite an honor for Albert Leonard and the district for us to be the first school recognized in The New York Jets' School Recognition Program. Congratulations to all! Mr. Barnes recently spoke at Met Life Stadium on August 22nd to a panel of educators looking to combat bullying in their school organizations. For more information about STOMP Out Bullying, please visit their website

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, Fran Nordquist and Nancy Podhradsky served as our PTA Co-Presidents. We thank Ms. Nordquist for her two years of service as our PTA President and will miss her this coming year! We also thank Ms. Kim Castellano for joining Ms. Podhradsky as our 2016/2017 PTA Co-Presidents, and look forward to a great year of working together.

Cheers to a wonderful school community and a phenomenal school year!

With appreciation,

John Barnes
ALMS Principal
