The Campus Climate Committee is looking for community volunteers to help with this very important group. If you are interested in volunteering some time please contact Jordan Sher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
School Climate Change Initiative
What we are seeing in the culture taking hold is a shared vision with students, parents, staff and administration to support finding new ways of making our campus safe for all students to learn.
In the third year of our initiative, we have crafted a Vision Statement, Teacher Promise Statement, a student-centered model for addressing students targeted for bullying, and a teacher-facilitated, student run Campus Climate Committee that has created numerous activities, events, and even videos to address the culture change we seek.
In a recent survey, students overwhelmingly agreed that empathy has increased at our school.

Abbott Swarm Round Up
Many thanks to all those of you who participated in the Abbott Swarm of 25th Ave, which took place on September 25th. We achieved our objective of raising $500 to help with the costs of the 60th anniversary celebration of our school. The Swarm was a fun day, eating out with friends, getting nails done, or dropping off laundry, and it benefited our school to the sum of $548.50. Thank you students, parents, and teachers!
This event could not have been a success without the help of our 25th Ave. vendors who were very generous towards us. Kudos to the following:
See you at the next Swarm!!!

Welcome to the Abbott Middle School Community!
With the change in the weather and the approach of the winter season, I'd like to remind parents about making sure students are getting the proper rest, following hygiene procedures to keep colds and flu at a distance, and eating foods that add to the quality of life. In addition to the physical needs of students, there is also a need to pay attention to the mental state of our students. Mental state for me means how they feel about themselves, their families, their friends, and their school achievement. After over thirty years in education, these two entities, the physical and the mental, form the basis from where our students draw their attitudes and beliefs about themselves and the world around them. The glue that keeps these two areas in balance are the relationships students have with their families, teachers, friends, school achievement and their physical well-being. When students are in harmony in all of these areas, they are in a positive frame of mind and will work really hard to keep the balance. My point is that we need our village to work together to make sure all students have the best possible opportunities to be successful in school now and later in life. I encourage all parents to keep moving toward the prize of producing a well-rounded citizen of the 21st Century.

for November and December is "Demonstrate Mutual Respect" which was taken from our school’s Vision Statement. At Abbott mutual respect means to treat others the way you want to be treated. Respect is a two-way street and it can take a person a long way when practiced consistently.
