Pennies for Patients Drive

Our wonderful K-8 students are working hard to raise fund for "Pennies for Patients," the annual drive to raise funds and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Our school participates each year in memory of a child we lost too early to cancer.  We were proud to raise hundreds of dollars last year, and this year, our goal is to raise over $1000.00!

Students bring in loose change, and the homeroom that raises the most money gets a free lunch from Olive Garden as a thank you for their hard work.

School Choice Week

Held every January, National School Choice Week shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child.

The goal of National School Choice Week (NSCW) is to raise public awareness of all types of education options for children. These options include public charter schools, like HSADMS.   To meet this goal, NSCW encourages schools, organizations, and individuals to hold positive events that celebrate school choice options, while drawing attention to the need for even greater opportunities for children.

We use this week to celebrate our school spirit with fun trips, dress down days, and a special parent night to highlight all the opportunities our neighbor offers the students at our school.  Thank you for entrusting your most precious children to our care each year! We are dedicated to helping them learn and grow!
8th Grade Trip to Horizon Science Academy--Cleveland High School
On Monday, January 23rd, our 8th graders took a tour of the high school and learned more about our solar system after watching a pop-up planetarium program.  
The students were excited to see all the extra-curricular activities the building offered, and the teachers were excited to see some of their former students and catch up.  
Our middle school "hammerheads" are growing up, and we can't wait to see who will graduate to become a high school "dragon!"
Winter Sports: Wrestling Spotlight
Although it was his first match, Andre Pettway impressed by medaling at his match this month.  Imagine what a powerhouse he will be as the year goes on!  He and Coach Taddeo have a lot to be proud of, GO HAMMERHEADS!!!
Student Spotlight
Our own, Keyshla Maysonet, was chosen to walk in New York Fashion Week on February 10th.  We are so proud of her!  

Not only is she a lovely young lady, she is a hard worker and strong student.  Keep up the great work, Keyshla!  HSADMS is rooting for you!

Hey students, wanna win a bike?  You can!
Students in each grade can win a bike by showing the most growth from the fall to the spring NWEA test.  This means students need to work hard to learn and improve in their reading and math classes!
Uniform Reminders!
Although the weather is cold and wet and often requires boots to be worn to the building, please remind your students to bring regular shoes to change into.  We don't allow boots to be worn inside the building.  The wet boots cause way too many issues.

Also, students should not have unnatural color dye or designs shaved in their hair. Pink, purple, green, etc. are fine for summer, but students cannot have them during the school year.  And, for the shaved styles, even small designs like stars or crosses are not permitted to be shaved in students' hair; again, please save this for summer time hairstyles.  Thanks in advance for encouraging your students to follow the dress code of our school.
