Campus Climate needs your help
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 Staff Appreciation 2016 "Summer Pleasures"
Our Abbott Middle School community is planning a wonderful Staff Appreciation week Monday, May 2nd-Friday, May 6th. The Staff Appreciation theme this year is "Summer Pleasures." Each day at lunchtime we will serve delicious Summertime foods, plus create a festive colorful atmosphere that will include great music. Our staff has worked very hard all year and truly deserve some TLC. You will have the option of donating food, time or both. All donations need to be labeled Staff Appreciation and stored in the back of the Staff Lounge. There is a very large refrigerator we can use in the back of the Staff Lounge as well. You can drop donations off earlier than needed. If you plan to drop your donations off the day they are needed please do so by 11:00am each day. All support is very appreciated. I thank you in advance for helping this time honored event!

Welcome to the Abbott Middle School Community!
We are heading into the final quarter of the year which is full of events that are all a part of the school year ending. Changes are in the air and while some people are leaving us, others are coming in. Until the last day of school, we must close out the current year by completing State testing in English, Reading and Math for all grades, attending the spring musical Lion King, Jr., going on end-the-year field trips, earning passing grades, turning in textbooks, cleaning out one's locker, turning in library books, and clearing any unpaid book bills. So goes the rhythm of school.
I have been told that the next principal for Abbott will be announced at the May 5 Board meeting. It will be the end result of a process the district has committed to finish in May. I will be working with the new principal to insure a smooth transition and to continue the great work our staff has been dedicated to over the years. I will leave Abbott at the end of June to continue my work at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. I have been a part-time teacher there for nine years teaching graduate courses in the School of Education and Leadership. I will continue to reside in the community. So, I'll see you from time to time.
