Library Fundraiser Update

Thanks to your very generous contributions, the Albany Middle School Library fundraiser was a tremendous success. We set a very ambitious goal of $5,000 and while we did not quite make our goal we did raise $4,808.10! 100% of this money goes directly towards the purchase of new books for the AMS Library. These donations are especially precious as they provide the primary source of funding for new books in the library. Your students can look forward to newly released titles by authors like: Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson & the Olympians, The Kane Chronicles, Heroes of Olympus, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, and yes, he has yet another new series coming this summer!), Raina Telgemeier (Smile, Sisters, Drama, Baby-Sitters Club), Brandon Mull (Beyonders, Fablehaven, Five Kingdoms), Cassandra Clare (The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments) and many, many more!

Albany is a community that supports the library and understands how vital the library is to nurture a love of reading and exploration. Please be aware that it is due to the continued support of the community that we are able to provide daily library services in all Albany schools (this is no small thing! http://edsource.org/2014/school-librarians-a-rare-find-in-california-public-schools/62226 )

Thank you so much for your generosity and continued support. Happy reading to you and your families in 2016!

Albany Middle School Tardy Policy

In an effort to improve student timeliness to class, Albany Middle School has a new tardy policy with consequences for students who acquire more than 3 tardies each quarter. This policy will take effect starting Wednesday, February 3rd. All students will start with zero tardies at that point. Tardies will reset to zero at the start of each quarter. There are flyers and informational sheets on campus and in teachers’ rooms. Please contact Mr. Haupert if you have any questions at dhaupert@ausdk12.org.
