Letter from the MC Principal

Middle Campus Families, 

As you know, ANCS is providing weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing on Friday mornings. The minimum needed for the testing to be successful is at least 50% of the population participating and as a K-8 school family, we are definitely meeting that mark. However, at the middle campus, we are just short of 50% of students participating and hope to continue to increase the number in the weeks to come. If you are interested in having your child participate but haven’t yet completed the consent form, click here to complete the consent. If you have missed news of this program or any other news from the start of the school year, you can find out everything you need to know by visiting the News page of our website

You may have noticed a Middle Campus event on the school calendar called Meet the School Family Night. We hope you will mark your calendar for this event on Thursday, September 2 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Middle Campus teachers and staff will be available in The Backyard (recess field) to meet, greet, chat and get to know you better. Closer to the event will send more information to families about how to access the information videos from each of the teachers and we hope you will spend about 30 minutes viewing each of the videos from your child’s teachers before attending the event. We ask that everyone recognize that this night is not for individual conferences, rather learn more about your child’s teachers and other school family members at the Middle Campus.

Finally, last night was our first 6th Grade and New Family Information Session of the year. If you are the parent or caregiver of an ANCS 6th grader or new 7th or 8th grader, we hope you will attend these monthly sessions. Over the years we have noticed that regular attendees of these sessions have a much higher level of understanding of what is going on at the middle campus so we strongly encourage participation. If you missed the session last night, don’t worry! You have another chance to attend on Friday at noon. Check your inbox for an email from Somer Hobby on Tuesday, August 11 for all of the details you’ll need to RSVP and attend. 

Wishing you well,
