Cougar Step Up!

Cougar Step Up is a two-day camp that will be held on our new Asheville Middle School campus! This program is designed for rising sixth graders to improve the transition experience for students coming into AMS. Sixth grade teachers will staff the camp, allowing students to get to know prospective teachers as well as other students. Activities will include an orientation to the campus and daily school schedule, team building, and organizational skills. Transportation, breakfast and lunch will be provided. For more information, contact Marvin Smith at marvin.smith@acsgmail.net. Applications are due June 3, 2016.

EOG Testing

This year, our EOG testing will be scheduled for the last full week of May as well as the first week of June. We plan to take 5th grade Math on Wednesday, May 25th. 5th grade Reading will be taken on Thursday, May 26th. Our 5th grade Science test (completed online) will be taken on Wednesday, June 1.

Aside from EOG testing, students will also be closing out their elementary experience with MCLASS and MAP testing during the next 6 weeks.

Please be very aware of absences over the next several weeks. We have a lot of ground to cover and I want all students to have the opportunity to experience all 5th grade content prior to testing.
