Grade 5 History Bee This winter all of Grade 5 participated in "The Who Was? History Bee". Each classroom had a champion and those representatives competed in our school wide bee. Nitin Aravindan was declared the winner and is going on to the next phase of this nationwide contest. He has taken a proctored exam which has been sent to "The History Bee" headquarters in New York City. We will be notified to see if he qualifies to be a finalist in the Bee competition which will take place in New York City.

Message from the Principal

Good Afternoon,

We are excited to wrap up our Kids Heart Challenge with our student/staff basketball game today. This raises both funding and awareness for the American Heart Association and heart healthy living. We are appreciative of the student and staff efforts that bring events like this to life and are happy to be able to offer them at the Abington Middle School. Thank you to all who donated to this cause.

We are happy to provide you with this year's anticipated MCAS testing dates for Spring 2020 for your planning purposes. Please be advised that while we do not expect changes to the testing dates provided below, should something unanticipated cause a change, we will update the testing dates and provide them to you as soon as possible. If you have any questions about MCAS testing, please feel free to contact me or Ms. Sawyers.

2020 AMS MCAS DATES

Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Project 351 Ambassador Jack Regan. Jack was selected by AMS educators for exemplifying outstanding leadership qualities. Each January, Project 351 honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with new Class of 8th Grade Ambassadors from across the state. These students embrace the responsibility to lead with a determination to make a difference. From 351 cities and towns, these Ambassadors are invited to “unite, act, and lead” for 12 months of inspirational service, empowering leadership training, and teamwork with a statewide network of friends. Congratulations to Jack.

Have a safe and restful weekend,
Mr. MacCurtain & Ms. Sawyers
