Final Bell Schedule:  We are pleased to announce that the Board of Education has approved our 2019-20 school bell schedule.  Alston Ridge Middle students will have classes from 8:15am - 3:00pm. The doors will open for students beginning at 7:45am.  More information will sent in the coming months regarding carpool procedures, bus transportation specifics, daily bell schedule, and more!



PTA Formation Meeting:  The PTA Formation Meeting is quickly approaching.  We will be meeting on Tuesday April 9th at 6:30pm in the Mills Park Middle School Media Center.  The WCPSS PTA Council will lead a parent meeting to help with the formation of our first PTA at Alston Ridge Middle School.  The four main officers will be nominated at the meeting (President, Vice President, Secretary, & Treasurer). We would love a large parent presence at this meeting as the partnership between Alston Ridge and the PTA is vital for our success!



Band Director Named!:  We are pleased to announce that we have officially named the first band director for Alston Ridge Middle School.  Please welcome Mr. Steven Kuni! Mr. Kuni is coming to us from Durant Road Middle School and is well renowned in the music community, not just in WCPSS, but throughout the state of North Carolina.  We are so fortunate that Mr. Kuni will be building our band program from the ground up by providing world class instruction and opportunities for our students. Please take a moment to view the ARMS Band Website to learn more about Mr. Kuni and to complete the interest form.
