WARRIOR WEDNESDAY – 2/9/22
Our next AMS Warrior Wednesday will take place on February 9th during Morning Meeting. Students are encouraged to wear blue and gold on Wednesday. Warrior Wednesdays are a celebration of our students, their unique identities and an opportunity to build classroom community through discussion. This month students will participate in the district’s Panorama survey. Additionally, we’ll be engaging in a community circle and using Google Slides to create personal logos that show different aspects of our unique identities and interests.
NEW NURSE AT AMS
AMS is happy to welcome April Shea, our new school nurse. Ms. Shea comes to Algonquin with extensive nursing experience in a variety of settings. Our school nurses are an incredible resource and have been instrumental in helping our school remain safe and open throughout the pandemic. Ms. Shea can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone in the health office at 518-674-7103.
A MESSAGE FROM THE NURSE – SPRING SPORTS PHYSICAL REQUIRED
If your child is planning to try out for a spring sport, they will need to have a physical on file at the health office which will be less than a year old on 3/14/22. If your child has not submitted a physical to the health office which meets this requirement, please arrange to have a copy of a recent physical submitted, or arrange with their primary health care provider to have a physical. This may be emailed to the nurse April Shea at Sheaa@apcsd.org, dropped off by your child at the health office, or faxed to us at 518-674-8426.
