Top Pedestrian Safety Tips for Students

1. Cross streets at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
2. Look left, right and left again when crossing the street.
3. Never run or dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
4. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them and watch out for cars that are turning or backing up.

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.

Welcome to the Abbott Middle School Community!

“At Abbott Middle School, we value mutual respect, empathy, good choices, teamwork and trust.
We believe that a safe learning environment will promote success for everyone.”

A few upcoming dates for you to calendar include Back-to-School Night on Thursday, August 14, 2014. On this evening we begin in the gym with general announcements, introduction of special Abbott Falcons, and a voice vote to fill the two parent vacancies on the 2014-15 School Site Council. If interested in serving on the Site Council, please let me know by email or a phone call no later than Friday, August 8, 2014. Parents will then follow a mini schedule of their student’s day. Another date is our first PTA Meeting scheduled for August 20, 2014 at 7 PM in our Library. You will have an opportunity to hear about plans for the 2014-15 school year, opportunities to volunteer at school, ways to support your student, and meet new staff members.

Our on-going mantra is simple: Striving for Excellence Year Round. We endeavor to reach and teach the whole child. I invite you to renew or join the partnership that will mean success for your student. It is with a strong sense of commitment, responsibility and dedication that I begin this school year and hope I can count on every family to join me on this journey.

Sincerely,

Cathy A. Ennon
Principal

Principal's essential theme . . .

Be an Upstander is the Principal’s essential theme for August. Being an Upstander means you are willing to stand up for what is right, no matter if you have to stand alone! At Abbott we are Upstanders, not bystanders! Mrs. Ennon
