Message from the Principal

 

Annual Welcome Letter

Dear ALMS Community Members,

Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 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 five years, to eradicate bullying in our school. This year, for the 11th Annual World Day of Bullying Prevention, we chose STUDENT STRONG as our message. It is critical that students stand together in solidarity and make this the day that bullying prevention is heard around the world.

Stay up to date with our latest news and announcements by following us on Twitter! #ALMSNewRo!

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, Kim Castellanos and Anne Todd served as our PTA Co-Presidents. We thank Ms. Castellanos for her two years of service as our PTA President and will miss her this coming year! We look forward to continued partnership with our 2018/2019 PTA Co-Presidents: Anne Todd and Melissa Panszi-Riebe.

Cheers to a wonderful school community and a phenomenal 2018-2019 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

School Announcements

  • Updated ALMS Family Outreach for Finals Week Including Finalized Transportation Arrangements to and from ALMS beginning 6/18/19

    Dear ALMS Families and Community Members,
     
    We hope everyone had a great weekend and look forward to ending the school year smoothly. Thank you for your collaboration this school year!
     
    As a follow-up to last week's outreach regarding transportation for school during our finals administration (beginning tomorrow 6/18/19) we wanted to ensure folks were aware:
     
    - Regular transportation will be in place in the morning (Liberty Lines - Bee Line Buses). Students taking the morning buses will be able to arrive to school in time to start their AM final exams. We expect students to begin arriving at 8:30 (or so) and will begin having students go to their room assignments, for their finals, at 8:45 am. (This is the same start time we currently have had in place all year long)
     
    - Yellow buses will be covering mid-day bus runs to pick students up for mid-day assignments (for students who are taking Regents exams in the afternoon and 8th graders on 6/20/19)
     
    - After today (6/17/19), yellow buses will also do the mid-day & afternoon runs in order to bring students back home. Today will be the last day of Liberty Lines busing in the afternoon. Yellow buses will replace the PM bus runs for the duration of the school year.
     
    Attached are the schedules we sent out on Friday (and earlier this morning) and a copy of the final exam schedule.
     
    Please feel free to contact the school with any questions or concerns.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    The ALMS Administrative Team
