Frightfully fun fest
Our Harvest Festival will be from noon- 4 p.m. Oct. 29 on campus. Admission cards are $5 and worth 10 punches to play carnival games, purchase food and enter the Haunted House. Games include knock down, ping pong ball toss, bean bag toss, 3-point basketball shot and more. There will be a costume contest, raffles, prizes of candy and small party favor toys and a cake walk. We are asking everyone to help make this is super fun event by donating bags of candy, small party favor toys, water bottles, store-bought cakes and cookies and pumpkins to be dropped off at school the week of Oct. 24-28.
A joyful remembrance
A Dia de los Muertos fest will be held during lunch on Nov. 2. The multi-cultural holiday is a tradition which joyfully honors and remembers those who have passed away. The AMS event will include Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) displays, music, food, drinks, and arts and crafts for sale. We hope everyone joins the fun event.
Going for the cycle
Los Medanos College professor and photographer Curtis Corlew happens to be married to his favorite model - Antioch Middle School teacher, Tricia Campbell. Ms. Campbell and her husband are avid bicyclists. He often photographs her on their various rides around Antioch and beyond. He shares some of those photos with Adventure Cycling, a bicycle advocate organization, which recently used a photo of Ms. Campbell as a wrap on their van. The van was recently traveling through NorCal, and Campbell and Corlew caught up with it - via bike, of course. Cheers to our fabulous teacher for this fun honor and for showing a healthy way to travel!
They've got the power!
It was a fabulous day! Antioch Rotary and Antioch High's Girl Power hosted a special assembly for 300 8th-grade girls from Antioch Middle and Park Middle schools. They watched the inspiring "Empowerment Project" documentary followed by a Q&A with a strong panel of women who encouraged them to honor themselves and raise each other up. The day ended with the AHS girls leading break-out sessions with the middle-schoolers to discuss relevant topics and how they can make their campuses stronger together. The Eagles then returned to school to have more dialog and worked on posters and more.
Antioch High's music department hosts its first Safe Trick or Treat event from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at AHS. The free event will include live performances by student dancers, musicians and singers. It will also include pictures with characters and various snacks for sale. Students under 11 years must be accompanied by an adult. Come join the fun and get into the Halloween spirit.
Eagles visit Panther Country
The Panthers are bridging the gap with their neighborhood Eagles! Antioch High recently hosted a mini tour of its school and academies to nearly 20 AVID Antioch Middle students. Accompanied by teacher Mr. Woolridge, the students met with Panther Link Crew leaders, who lead them around the campus with stops at Eells Stadium and a classroom in each academy. The group stopped in on Ms. Armstrong's Career in Education class, Mr. James' intro to engineering design, Mr. Barton's AP environmental science; and Ms. Lewis' video production. Each teacher gave an overview of their academy and classes offered. AMS students asked questions and also heard perspective from several AHS students. The tour gave the students a sneak peek of what will be available to them next fall.
AMS students recently showed their knowledge of the preamble. Last week during Constitution Day, students were encouraged to memorize the preamble. If they could recite it to teacher Ms. Hubbard, they were rewarded with a popsicle.
A successful ELAC
We're happy and encouraged by the number of parents who attended our recent ELAC meeting. Together, we'll be helping to support our English Language Learners. Go, Eagles.
Teacher Frank Zrinski Jr. recently introduced his 7th-grade classes to life science microscope observations and drawings. His enthusiastic students observed colored threads, Ranunculus stems, onion root tips, mixed species of protozoa, and spider spinnerets. The goal of the lesson was to look at things under 40x, 100x and 400x and "see how powerful the light microscopes really are to check out some of the organelles and cells that Robert Hooke and Anton van Leeuwenhoek perhaps saw in the 17th century," Mr. Zrinki said.

AMS School Accountability Report Card
Every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC), by February 1 of each year. The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
