4/14/19 Parent Message


PTSA Board:  A HUGE THANK YOU to all the parents who attended the PTA Formation Meeting this past week.  We had a tremendous turnout! We are so grateful to have such dedicated parents supporting Alston Ridge and the school we are creating.  It is an honor to introduce the first ever board of the Alston Ridge Middle School PTSA:


  • Dawn Purdie - President
  • Amar Singh - Vice President
  • Kelly Green-Krist - Treasurer
  • Nicole Yates - Secretary


More information on the PTSA, upcoming meetings, events, and other ways to support ARMS will be shared in the coming weeks/months.  Thank you again!



Athletics Boosters:  Coach Weidenburner, our first Athletic Director, is in the process of building a strong athletic program at Alston Ridge Middle School.  Creating an Athletics Booster Club is the first step in supporting our student athletes and creating a positive connection with the parent community.  Please complete the following form if you have interest in helping build the program: Alston Ridge Athletics Booster Club.  Additional information will be shared with parents in the coming weeks.  



Athletics Physicals:  Students interested in participating in athletics at Alston Ridge Middle will be required to submit new physicals for the upcoming school year.  If you want to get a jump start on physicals for the fall sports season, here is your chance! Please see this flyer for a sports physical special by EmergeOrtho on May 15th.



Track Assignments Update:  THANK YOU for your patience and flexibility during the track assignment process.  We have been working diligently as an ARMS team, both regarding students in our school and with the elementary feeder schools, to ensure we create a balanced school across all four tracks.  The process has been lengthy and informative. I’ve also appreciated how the process has allowed me to review student data. I feel like I already know the future Warriors and can’t wait to meet each student in person!  All final track assignments will be mailed on Thursday April 18th. As always, feel free to contact Mr. Williams with any questions or concerns.



Facility Update:  We have updated our facility slideshow with pictures from Monday April 8th.  Take a moment to view the Alston Ridge Middle Facility Updates to see the amazing progress by Barnhill Contracting, Skinner/Farlow/Kirwan Architecture, and Wake County Public Schools!
