Itís hard to
believe we are nearing the end of the 2014-2015 school year. We
appreciate all the support you give on a daily basis. Two years ago, Alice Drive Middle was named
a 21st century STEM pilot school in collaboration with STEM Centers
and the SC Coalition for Mathematics and Science. It is our vision
to equip all students to reach their maximum potential in a competitive global
marketplace.We are currently pursuing AdvancED STEM certification. A team will visit ADMS May 21 - 22. We look forward to sharing the wonderful things we are
doing here and across the district.
Our school-wide theme is SOAR: Shows Respect, Obeys Rules, Accepts Responsibility, and Rises to Excellence. It is our vision to engage all students in a rigorous, integrated, and vertical 6th-8th grade STEM-based education that substantially increases the numbers of youth who recognize a real value and reward in studying STEM, believe STEM careers are viable and attainable career options, and will ultimately use the experiences of our STEM program to realize their maximum potential in a competitive global marketplace.
In closing, I would like to encourage all parents to make a special effort to join with our faculty to improve the channels of communication between ADMS and your home. Check our website frequently for updated back to school information. Please feel free to call me at 775-0821 (extension 113) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments, or concerns.
In it together,
Jeannie Pressley, Principal
