Arts Middle School Family Update

Friday, December 21st, 2018

Hello Arts Middle Families!

Today is the last day to complete the Climate Survey. We know that it is a busy time of year and appreciate everyone that has completed the survey. Please consider taking 15 minutes to take the survey. We value your feedback and use it to improve the school. The more families that respond, the more we learn about what you think and how we can plan for improvements.
