6th Grade Boot Camp

The Middle Campus teachers will host our new student Boot Camp on Monday, August 12th from 12:00 - 3:00pm at the Middle Campus. This time together for students will include Ice Breakers, touring the school, getting to know our teachers and staff, understanding your schedule and how to use your locker, learning our policies and expectations, and so much more! Students are welcome to bring a snack and water bottle, but will not need to bring any other items. This is a great tradition at ARS' Middle Campus and a wonderful opportunity for students to ease the anxiety of the first day of school in a new place! Please join us on Monday, August 12th at noon.

Lunch Orders & Fee Payments

See the post on our News page for information on our lunch ordering and payment system! MyPaymentsPlus allows parents to order lunch, pay fees, and sign up and pay for field trips and other activities using an eCheck or credit/debit card. There are NO FEES to families making payments online. MyPaymentsPlus also allows our families to complete open house paperwork online! We're sure this will make it easier for our families and staff to make and keep track of school payments. Please note that we will utilize MyPaymentsPlus for all payments to the school again this year; we do not accept cash or paper checks.

Please stay tuned for additional information as it becomes available, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We can't wait to get started next week. Enjoy the remainder of your summer!
