Principal's Message


We hope you are having a great school year at Alderwood Middle School. In 2019, we had an above-average amount of our students make Honor Roll during the first quarter. We are hoping that trend continues as we are about to start the second semester. Second semester starts January 28th and there are a couple of opportunities for you to change up your student’s schedules. We were able to add some additional staffing to help relieve larger class sizes in our Social Studies, Science, and Health/PE classes. These changes will take effect on Jan. 28th. Please click on the links below if you would like to request changing to one of these classes. While most of the opportunities are for 8th grade students, please see some 7th grade options below as well. 

Zero Period - we are taking more 7th and 8th grade students to be a part of our zero period program. Students would show up daily at 7:00 am to participate in Health/PE so they can take a second elective during the school day. A student would have seven classes, from 7:00 am to 2:30 pm. Transportation is not provided, parents will need to drop off students by 7:00 am daily.

2-Dimension Art and Design Class - we are excited to create another art elective at AMS, starting 2nd semester, open to all students. We have space for 30 students, please click on the link below if you are interested. The class should take place during 6th period, barring any changes. You will use technology programs on your Chromebook and use other mediums to create drawings, pictures, animation, and much more! This class can be taken as a second elective if you already have an elective you like. Please sign up for zero period  above if you want to take this as your second elective.

7th Grade Literacy - we are adding more 7th grade students to Literacy, a course that takes the place of an elective in order to provide support with reading and writing. If your child did not pass the SBA last year and needs more support receiving targeted instruction, please click on the link below to request placement in this class. Students can choose this class if they have or want to have zero period. Ms. Biddick teaches this class 6th period. 7th Grade Literacy Support Class - Click to request course
