Mayor Visits

l


4th Graders got a surprising visit from our very own Abita Springs government official, Mayor Lemmons.  In Social Studies, the students were learning all about different types of government, and Mayor Lemmons was able to add much from his personal experience. We were so happy to have him join us!

National School Lunch Week

l

Abita Springs Middle School celebrated National School Lunch Week October 14th - 18th.  The theme for the week was "School Lunch across the USA," and parents were invited to join us for meals planned around specific US regions. Students participated in a variety of ways. Mrs. Wiegand's 4th graders used social studies, math, writing, and technology to create and publish menus for the week.  Cafeteria Manager, Conny Yevcinez, selected the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place menus. Winners are pictured with their menus (lef to right) Mahkai Walker-Williams, Mrs. Conny (dressed as a cowgirl for Midwest day); Lonnie Tankersley, and Haven Davis.

 

Parents Night

l

A parent night was held recently at Abita Springs Middle School to help inform parents about current trends in social media. Special Agent Scott Roye spoke to parents about many dangers associated with internet and cell phone use by children, including inappropriate sites and content, child predators, privacy invasion, reputation destruction, and cyber bullying. In the photo are (L-R) Eva Jackson, counselor, Principal Donna Forrest, Agent Roye, and Assistant Principal Rhonda Meyers.    

 

Food Drive

The focus of the B1 Club at Abita Springs Middle School for the month of September was "Responsibility." B1 Representatives from each homeroom class met as a group to discuss the meaning of responsibility and how they could reach out to fill a need in our community by acting responsibly. The B1 Club decided to help replenish the Food Bank of Covington. Representatives led a school-wide campaign to collect non-perishable food goods for the Food Bank throughout the month of September. Students collected, counted, and eventually loaded the items onto the Food Bank truck. Abita Middle students collected 1,632 items weighing 1,513 pounds!

ASMS students shown holding goods for the Food Bank of Covington are, left to right, Hunter Wilkinson, Jouet Curtis, Maci Liberto, Miranda Gendusa, and kneeling in front, Drake Lejeune.

Seated in the food bank truck ready to load up all the goods are, left to right, Brianna Dunne, Isabelle Hallmark, Mia Stewart, Bryan Ingrassia, and Gage Herberger.

Bringing collected goods to the office to be counted and contained for pick-up are, left to right, Anjoli Russel, Noelle Downey, Ella Henry, Luke Arceneaux, Rick Larousse, and Mrs. Bond.
