Message from Principal Doug
Greetings AIM students and families,
This week I would like to remind everyone to be a- “H.E.R.O.” H.E.R.O. stands for:
We have noticed that many students have struggled to attend and engage in their classes since 2nd semester started. 20% progress due date is next week! Be a H.E.R.O, connect with your teachers, attend class, and get your work turned in.
If you are struggling with remote learning at home, please let us know by calling the main office 360-563-3400 or email me personally firstname.lastname@example.org .
We have some seats available at our Internet Café and if you would like the opportunity to join us on campus to do your remote learning with a small group of other students, we can add a few more to our list.
The students that are taking advantage of this opportunity are thriving! Students must be pre-approved as space is limited. Don’t wait if you are interested.

URGENT - Last chance for Graduating Seniors!
Over $20,000 in scholarship funding is available to AIM students. This includes funding for college classes, certifications, trades and vocational training through the Snohomish Local Scholarship Program. The deadline to apply is March 5th. There are documents that will take some time to compile your application appropriately, so it is important to get started now. Please contact Derek right away if you are interested in this opportunity. Not sure if you will use the funds next year? You can defer your scholarship award(s) for one year.
Assistance League of Everett is offering Graduation Awards to high school seniors. Awards are open to all graduating seniors. Awards of up to $200 per student are available for senior year graduation expenses. The main criterion for this award is financial need.

Internet Cafe' Update
Snohomish School District Middle and High Schools had been given permission to allow a small number of students on campus starting Monday January 11th. Students that have no/poor internet or other circumstances that make doing remote learning at home a challenge are eligible to be selected to participate. Eligible students were contacted by phone regarding coming to the internet café. The number of available spots is small in order to facilitate the health and safety protocols set by health and district officials. There will not be direct access to teachers but academic support will continue to be available through ZOOM during teacher open periods.
One student who has been attending the cafe' reported, " if it wasn't for the internet cafe', I would not have passed my classes this semester!".
If you have challenges that impact your ability to access remote learning at home and would like to be considered as a candidate for the Internet Café, please email Principal Doug Plucker firstname.lastname@example.org
