6th Grade Turns the Wheel on Nov 16th

Hello 6th Graders (& Parents),

Most of your classes are on a semester schedule. The exception is your Elective Wheel course in Period 1 &/or Period 2. This course is on a quarter schedule. When we are in-building - we usually escort the groups to their new wheel class at the quarter. Being in remote ... we miss out on that transition fun.

The end of first quarter is November 12. What this means is on Monday November 16 - you need to log into your new 2nd quarter wheel classes as shown in your Quarter 2 schedule. We will be testing the remote transition to see if we have any kinks... watch for further instructions in the week to come.

Please look at your Quarter 2 classes using StudentVue. The following diagram shows how to find the schedule for Quarter 2 once you are in your StudentVue account.

ACMA PTO Fundraiser Tuesday, Nov 17, 4-8pm

Come support ACMA PTO by getting dinner at Panera (3435 SW Cedar Hills Blvd) !

THANK YOU to all ACMA families for their outpour of support for the recent fundraising event at Chipotle. We are humbled by the enthusiasm and participation that helped us exceed our event fundraising goal.

Our next ACMA PTO Restaurant Fundraiser will be at Panera Bread on Cedar HIlls Boulevard on NOVEMBER 17th from 4 pm to 8 pm.

The recent event was a huge success for ACMA and Chipotle, yet we learned a few logistics details need to be coordinated with the restaurant itself to ensure the safety of the ACMA patrons and the restaurant staff. Our PTO coordinator for the event has discussed the event with Chipotle and Panera Bread. The lessons learned will lead to a safer experience at Panera Bread.

Online (pick up or curbside) and in person orders will qualify for the ACMA fundraiser. When ordering online, enter code PRFUND at checkout to ensure ACMA PTO gets a portion of the proceeds.

Unfortunately, gift cards, delivery services, like DoorDash, Postmates, and catering will not count. More information will be provided as we approach the event date. Thank you again.

New Comer Lunch Nov 18th

Student Equity Team Meeting - Nov 18th

As we work to make ACMA an anti-racist and anti-biased haven for all students, staff, and families one important step is collaborating with others to foster ideas, promote change, and propose ways we can adapt our current system to improve equity and be the best school we can be.

To help create a venue for that collaboration, I'd like to invite you to our Student Equity Team meeting on Wednesday, 11/18, from 9:30-10:30. This is totally voluntary, and I know how crazy busy all of you are, so if this isn't the right time for you, please do not feel any pressure at all to participate on this team.

It is my hope that the anti-bias/anti-racism work we do will permeate all we do, and this Student Equity Team, like the Staff Equity Team we have in place, will help to guide this work.
