Principal's Corner

Welcome Back

Dear Parents and Students,

We are busy getting ready for the first day of school on Monday, August 26. While teachers on vacation, office staff and custodians are working hard preparing for that first day and beyond.

Prior to the first day, we have an opportunity for students and their parents who are new to the area and moved to Fort Bragg during the summer to attend our “New to Albritton Middle School” orientation on August 14 at 1:00.

Our Open House is set for Thursday, August 22 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm where students and parents are encouraged to visit and tour the school, meet their teachers and also meet our PTA officers for the 2019-2020 school year.

Before the Open House, students will receive their class schedules and maps as part of the Welcome Packet, which will be mailed in mid-August. The student schedule will show each class period in order along with teacher and room number; please bring the schedule and map to the Open House so that you may follow it to meet all of the teachers. School bus information will also be available at Open House.

If your student plans on participating in a sport this year, please get a sports physical. The physical can be in any format as long as it is signed by the doctor and includes the doctor's printed name, clinic stamp, and date. Physicals are only good for one year. Fall sport tryouts (football for 7th and 8th grade only, boys soccer, girls track, and girls volleyball) will begin afterschool on Wednesday, August 28. There is a mandatory parent/student meeting for those interested in fall sports on August 28 at 5:30.

Regarding dress code for the upcoming year there have been a few changes. Students may now wear black and grey collared shirts. Size appropriate sweatshirts, in a solid color of red, blue, black, grey, navy, or white may be worn over an approved “uniform” shirt with collar, which must be worn and visible underneath. Hoodies may also be worn. Sweatshirts and hoodies must be in a solid color or PTA-sponsored spirit wear. Only a small, pocket-sized logo is acceptable on sweatshirts and hoodies, no other graphics or text is allowed. Hoods may not be worn in the school building. PTA spirit wear are acceptable tops to wear any day of the week. The color grey has also been added as an approved color for slacks, shorts, skirts, and dresses.

If you would like to order spirit wear this summer, which will be ready for pick up at Open House, go to albritton.memberhub.store. You may also create an account with PTA at https://albritton.memberhub.com/join/98219f The PTA will be sending out information through that website.

We hope you have a very relaxing and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing you soon!

See you soon,
Dr. Hussein
