AMS taking the lead.

Aycock has participated in the county science fair six years in a row, and each year we get at least one student to place 1st and go on to regional and we've had some go all the way to state. Aycock is truly on the map in Guilford county for our Science excellence! This year Noa Lee placed first in the Physics category and will represent Aycock at the regional science fair at the end of January in Chapel Hill, NC. We also had Alasia Williams-Watlington place 2nd in the Earth/Environmental category and Maria Shields placed 3rd in the Biology B category!

Aycock Middle PTSA Students Give Back Through Food Pantry, Coat Drive

The student members of Aycock Middle’s PTSA club helped make a difference in their school community this fall. The students wrote a grant, funded by the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro’s Teen Grant Council, to establish a food pantry that would provide snacks and food to Aycock families in need on the weekends, during the summer and for holidays.

Students shopped for families to have complete meals at Thanksgiving and Christmas, using and building their math and budgeted skills. Students also held a coat drive and collected more than 50 coats for students in need.

Holiday Reading Incentive Program

Once again, we would like to encourage students to continue reading during the winter break. Attached is the log students can use to keep track of their minutes – 20 minutes a day for at least 15 days during winter break, December 20, 2014 – January 5, 2015.
