For some lessons, we will use the learning management system Google Classroom in this class; therefore, your student must charge their Chromebook or PC daily. A blended learning methodology (traditional/technology) will allow students to enjoy the best of both worlds. For example, the student will attend classes in a real-world classroom setting, engage in classroom learning, and then post or supplement the lesson by completing online multimedia learning opportunities. If ACPS announces a remote day - classes will be posted to Google Classroom. 

ACHS will notify dates for Parent Teacher Conferences; I ask that you attend these regularly scheduled conferences. 

  • All students will be given classroom guidelines and norms during the first week of school. Refer to the guidelines, student handbook, and school board policy for behavioral and grading expectations.
  • US/VA SOL/Curriculum Framework can be found on the VDOE website. link

Parents & Guardians

If you would like to check on your student’s progress, please ensure you can access PowerSchool. Grades are updated regularly; late stages will be updated after all recent updates. 

I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

I look forward to working with you this year.
