PE Make Ups are May 14, 15, 17 and 18, everyday afterschool at 3:30-4.  Students are to be dressed out in their PE uniform and be ready to participate.  This class is for students that have an excused absence or had a medical excuse and need to earn their points. 

Any student that missed a run will be doing a make-up run during class that week.  If your student has missed multiple days, they should come to more than one make up day after school.

The designs for the Class of 2018 sweatshirts are finally ready to be sold. There are 2 designs to choose from because I know that students have different opinions, the back design however will be the same.  The sweatshirts will be sold during lunch in front of Ram Hall for 2 weeks starting on April 10th through Friday, April 20th.  Sweatshirts are only pre-sale, so you must purchase one in advance.   Once you submit payment and select your size, all orders will be placed.  It will probably take 2-3 weeks for the sweatshirts to be produced from that point.  

 

Sweatshirts can be purchased as crewneck ($30) or hooded ($40). An actual sample will not be on-hand to look at when you purchase since they have not yet been produced.  You can look at the sample picture here in the attachments or in person.  Disregard the fact that the attachment says El Camino mock up.  All sweatshirts will be in adult sizes.  Cash is the preferred method as we are nearing the end of the year. The names that you see on the back sample has last year's names on them because that's what the designer had on file but of course, the ones you purchase will have your names on them.

 

Once the sales are over, there will not be an opportunity to purchase after.  Please make note of this because it happens every year, people choose not to get a sweatshirt but once they see that everyone has one, they want one.  Again, since the end of the year is so close, we will not have time to make a late order.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

As the end of the year approaches, we need to start thinking about fundraising for our Great America Field Trip.  To offset the cost that each student would have to pay we will be holding the Walk-a-thon which has been a successful fundraiser in years past.  Without any fundraising the field trip will be very expensive including the cost of the admission and bus ride.  I would hate for any students to miss out on the opportunity to celebrate the 3 years that we spent here at Alta Loma and prepare for high school because the tickets were more than families were willing to pay.  Without any fundraising, students would be paying $57 to attend the field trip.  With successful fundraising, the goal is to get ticket prices down into the $20 range but has been as low as $10 before. 

 

The Walk-a-thon will take place on Wednesday, April 25th after school between 2:30-3:30 on the blacktop.  A course will be set up and students will have fun with their friends and walk laps to raise the money that they received donations for from friends and family.  You will solicit donations 1) per lap, or 2) flat rate.  Rather than asking friends or family members for cash in person, an easier way is by creating a webpage using the site that is attached.  This is a very quick and easy process.  Once you create the page, all you have to do is copy and paste the link into emails and send them out to whomever you feel will donate.  Please help support our class and lower the cost of our Great America Field Trip.  Top fundraisers will earn a free trip to Great America, along with other incentives. 

$25 will earn a free dress

$50 will earn a free homework pass in a class to be determined

Top fundraisers earn their trip for free and maybe even a funnel cake if you can find me at Great America.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Tom.

 

Here is the link (but you'll have to copy and paste it) to the page you will create and all of the money that you earn will show up on your account that you created so we can keep track.  Good luck and thank you for your support!

Alta Loma Middle School is excited about our new program, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS). PBIS is a proactive approach to establishing the support needed for all students in school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. Key focus areas of PBIS at Alta Loma include prevention, positive behavior supports, and using data to better determine the needs of our students.

We are looking for help from local community and surrounding area businesses to help support students and our program at Alta Loma Middle School. Acknowledging both students and staff for their dedication to the program will help ensure the success of PBIS in our school and help support positive behaviors in the community. Any form of support you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Examples of things that may be helpful would include gift certificates, product sets/baskets, or financial donations to help purchase materials needed for the program. Any donation will be publicly acknowledged, as we are deeply grateful for your support.

We look forward to  partnering with you to ensure the success of our students.

Please use the form attached to fill out the necessary information and keep the portion below as an unofficial receipt for your records, until an official one is sent to you upon receiving the donation.

Sincerely,

ALMS PBIS Team
