Parents, as we move through this last seven weeks of school, I have found it necessary to revisit our BYOD(Bring Your Own Device) policy and cell phone policy here at school. I delivered a video message to students on Wednesday reminding them of our policy with their phones…..phones are to be off and out of sight either in their locker or bookbag, UNLESS they are being used in the classroom as part of our BYOD policy. Please help us by reminding your student of the consequences for violation of the policy. In some cases, we WILL confiscate phones and hold them in the office until the end of the day and ,for repeat offenders, some will be asked to check their phone in when they arrive at school and pick it up at the end of the day. As we prepare for EOG testing in the most important part of the year, we want to make sure there are not distractions for your student related to their device and we hope you will support us on that front as well!!
We have a basket to fill so please go to Bobcats May Madness Raffle Basket-Kids and sign up for a item. Send it in to the your homeroom teacher. All donations are due by Monday, April 3rd. If you are wanting to get an item donated, please contact me, Tina McKenna, firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you the form with donation information on it. Thanks!
In science class we will be dissecting flowers on Monday and Tuesday. Please use the sign-up-genius link if you care able to donate flowers. Thank you in advance!!!!!

Dear 6th Grade AMS Parents:
We are asking this year that parents purchase the novel we are planning to teach to our 6th graders. The title of this novel is The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. This allows students to read the novel at home and use it for highlighting, underlining, and annotating. You may order the book through your teacher’s Scholastic webpage for $5.00. By purchasing your student’s novel through Scholastic, we earn free books for our classroom. When you order the novel through Scholastic, it will be shipped to your child’s teacher at Apex Middle School. You are also welcome to obtain the book on your own. If purchasing is a problem, a copy will be given on loan. Please do not order eBook copies, as students will not be able to annotate the text.
Please make your purchase by Friday, February 3.
*Link to Mrs. Bensley’s Scholastic Book Order Webpage:
Ordering Instructions: In the top right hand corner, enter The One and Only Ivan in the search box. The paperback copy is $5.00. Click add to cart, and check out!
Thank you! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
