Annual Welcome Letter

Dear ALMS Community Members,

Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 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 six years, to eradicate bullying in our school. This year, for the 12th Annual Blue Shirt Day, World Day of Bullying Prevention, we ask all community members to #BlueUp on Monday, October 7th. It is critical that students stand together in solidarity and make this the day that bullying prevention is heard around the world.

Please stay up to date with our latest news and announcements by following us on Twitter or Instagram! @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, Anne Todd and Melissa Panszi-Riebe served as our PTA Co-Presidents. We thank Ms. Todd for her two years of service as our PTA President and will miss her this coming year! We look forward to our continued partnership with our 2019/2020 PTA Co-Presidents: Melissa Panszi-Riebe and Kristen Bamberger.

Cheers to a wonderful school community and a phenomenal 2019-2020 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
