A Note from Mr. Wilbur:

Lion King Videos!

There are two videos! Choose which cast you want to see first. After you buy one, I will give you a code that will let you download the other for free!


These videos are available to stream or download at Vimeo. You will need to create a free account (very simple), and pay $20 by credit card or PayPal for the video.


Let me know if you have any problems purchasing.


These videos are shot in hi-def, and are extremely huge files. To ensure best playback, make sure to press the “HD” button at the bottom right of the screen. For BEST results, download the file to your computer first. Again, let me know if you have problems with playback. <pwilbur@artsbasedschool.com>








Field Day 2016

It was a beautiful day for playing outside.  The air horn blew and the day began.  They spit watermelon seeds, got dizzy, had their pictures taken, ran relays, danced, completed an obstacle course, and even got wet!  We had a fantastic Field Day and we’d like to thank April Greenwood and Etta King for putting it all together!   Thanks to the parents who ran activities, provided supplies, helped set up and clean up, we couldn’t have done it without you!  It’s so great to be a part of such a wonderful community.  Check out the Field Day pictures https://abschool.shutterfly.com/

Also, check out Mr. Wilbur’s field day video

K-8 Class Representatives- 

Did you love being a class representative or dream of being one for next year??!! If you are interested in a class representative position for the upcoming school year, 2016-2017, then please let your PC Co-Chairs know!  We are starting to plan for next year. Lindsay Deibler –lindsaydeibler@gmail.com or Julee Nunley – julee@thenunleys.net

Thank you for all you do for our school!


Who’s My Teacher?

Classroom teachers met with the grade level team before school was out to create the class rosters for next year.  They use all that they know about your child’s academic, social, emotional, and behavioral qualities to determine which

classroom is the best match.  Parent requests received before May 1st are also considered along with other information.  To find out your classroom assignment for next year, class lists will be posted on the ABS website when all teachers have been hired.


Lost and Found

ABS will be donating all lost and found on June 13.  Please stop by before then to claim any personal items.


Middle School Math Expanding

Next year, our middle school math program will be expanding as we add an additional math teacher to work with our current math teacher, Mrs. Lewis to meet the needs of 7th grade math, 8th grade math, Math I and Math II.  We are currently looking for a full time math teacher.  Our ideal candidate will be a math lover who enjoys middle school kids. This team player will be both professional and creative. Interested teachers should send resume to Principal Hollis at rhollis@artsbasedschool.com
