Welcome Back, Everyone!

We are all excited and ready for our new school year to begin, and we hope that you are, too! I hope that you all had a very relaxing summer. If you look around our campus, you will see that many people have been hard at work to make ASMS a beautiful place to be. Our back portables have been removed, and a limestone parking lot has been added for school parking during the week, and park parking on the weekend. A new fence will be constructed along the parking lot to ensure the safety of all students. Maintenance has also been hard at work to improve our playground and sidewalk drainage. Our dynamic PTA lent their time and talent to paint and do some renovations to our library. Our school custodial team worked very hard to make the school look so wonderful. We hope that you will stop in to have lunch with your child or volunteer some of your time in the classroom or in the office.

Please note that due to increased security, we will be scanning everyone's driver's license or state ID when you come to check out a student or to volunteer. Please be sure to make the office your first stop when you arrive. We want to do our best to make our campus safe for everyone here. Upcoming changes will include the installation of security cameras around the campus.

We have some exciting plans for your children this year with academics, technology, Positive Behavior Support, Club Day and many other things. We think Abita Springs Middle School will be the place to be to Think, Grow, and Learn. We thank you for all of your support and for playing a vital role in your child's education. Here is to a great year. Hope to see you around!
