Principal's Message

Dear AGM Families,

Happy New Year! What an exciting time, as we reflect upon the first part of the year and think things to come! Our Board of Education goals focus on academics, attendance, and student connections to school. Here are the highlights for AGM:

Academics

  • Our STEM lab, housed at LWW, is going strong and students are loving the experience. Of particular note is our 5th Grade Project Lead the Way classes, which focus on robotics and automation. Students are learning about inputs and outputs, as well as the design process for engineering.

  • Our Chinese Language and Culture classes, taught by Ms. Kelly Zhang, to our 3rd graders. Students are learning Mandarin language, music, Morning Routine, stories, and sports.

  • All grade levels are utilizing Lucy Calkins’ Units of study in Writing. We are seeing excellent pieces coming from our students!

Attendance

  • Our Building Planning/Olweus site based team is focusing on attendance, as it is priority for student engagement and connections to school. We are recognizing students for Perfect, Excellent, and Improved attendance each quarter.

  • All students with perfect Attendance for the first 20 weeks of the 2016-2017 school year will be recognized at a special presentation by the UE Board of education at the February 21 meeting, being held at AGM.

  • Personalized AGM notes are being sent home regarding attendance.

  • Family connections are being made, whether it is a conversation at the main office counter or on the phone, or a visit to the home, to enhance our attendance.

Student Connections to School

  • Our PTA is in full swing – it’s our busiest time of year for student activities! Please see the side bar for all of these wonderful events in January and February.

  • We have our Grades 4/5 concerts for Band, Chorus and Orchestra on January 11. Grade 4 is at 6:30, with Grade 5 at 7:15 in our cafetorium.

  • After School Academies in Math and ELA will be starting soon, as well as PTA After School Enrichment Classes: Legos, Chess, and Kitchen Kids.

  • AGM will be hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive January 24, 4:00-6:00, in our gymnasium. Please try to donate!

  • Library Night Out has a special “Drive-In Night” on January 26 at 6:00.

As always, thank you for the opportunity to educate your child at AGM!

Sincerely,

Timothy J. Lowie

Principal


Hello Parents and Guardians!

I am so excited to be part of the AGM community.  The culture of the school is one of commitment and passion for helping all children learn and become productive citizens. 

I believe that attendance in school is one of the most important factors in a student’s success in school.  Sometimes it is difficult to motivate your child to get out of bed and get ready for school 180 days of the year.  As a mother of three children, I understand this reality.  Yet, if a child misses five or more days a year, they are more likely to fall behind their peers, feel uneasy about school and possibly even not graduate from high school.  It can snowball from a small problem in elementary school to a big problem as the child gets older. 

I want to help you if you are having difficulty getting your child up and going in the morning.  I can call them in for a conference, set up an attendance chart or find a unique solution that fits the needs of your child.

If you feel that your student is a victim of bullying, please let a school adult know immediately.  We have ongoing class meetings on this topic and adults in the school have been trained to take bullying accusations very seriously.  They will react immediately to investigate and rectify the situation.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Call me at 757-2131 (school) or 624- 1746 (cell) or email me at jlamurag@uek12.org.

Sincerely,

Julie Lamuraglia

Assistant Principal
