Message from Principal Doug

Greetings AIM students and families,

February is Black History Month -- Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history

At AIM, we value all types of diversity and are dedicated to creating a community enriched by young women and men of diverse backgrounds and respectful of differences. Diverse perspectives and experiences are central to academic excellence because they expand creative thought and analysis, test unexamined assumptions, challenge accepted truths and broaden understanding of ourselves and our world. We must be able to draw from a wide variety of experiences and perspectives to foster a community marked by hope and love.

I am proud of the many ways our community understands, appreciates and celebrates differences and justice for all.

Be well,

Doug Plucker

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
