#TogetherWeFly Update for Armstrong High School

First Week of School

Good Afternoon Armstrong Students and Families,


Thank you to all our stakeholders for a good first week of school. We obviously ran it to some glitches on Tuesday but our technology department within our district has been working to alleviate the problems. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Teachers have been impressed with the positivity and engagement they have seen from you in classes, they are excited to see what the next week of school brings! Students, please continue to work with your teachers and stay engaged and contact them when you need some help.


We will be shifting to our new schedule next week and our first “Falcon Focus” Wednesday. This is a great opportunity to get some extra help in courses or accelerate your learning. All students must check in with their advisory course at 9:37 am on Wednesday.


Students, don't forget to fill out the survey at the bottom of the newsletter so we know how your first week at school went!


Enjoy your weekend!


Together We Fly,


Go Falcons!!
