Welcome to Altar Valley Middle School

Welcome to AVMS, proud home of the Eagles! We are located just southwest of Sasabe Road and Ajo Highway, in Tucson, Arizona. We are one of two schools in the Altar Valley Elementary School District, and we serve students in 5th through 8th grade.

We are honored to educate the children in our area and offer many programs for families and students. We believe that all students can SOAR when given the opportunity, and we strive every day to make this a reality for the many middle schoolers on our campus.

Take some time to browse our site. We’ve loaded it with helpful information such as how to contact us, frequently asked questions, and our school calendar. We know you’ll find this a useful resource. Thanks for stopping by!


A Message from Principal Peebles

Dear Altar Valley Middle School Families, 

One of the best parts of the holiday season is the opportunity to take a break, however brief, from regular day-to-day affairs. I hope this year that you can use this time to reflect on items that are most important, rather than on what is most urgent. As principal of Altar Valley Middle School, I have grown to appreciate how easily the urgent can push aside the important, but I strive daily to focus on the important, our children! I hope that, during the holiday break you will also be able step back and focus on the important topics in your professional and personal lives. Best wishes for a peaceful and joyful holiday!

As we look ahead to second semester let’s remember the importance of the school year routine. Get your child to bed early on school nights, have your child eat a healthy breakfast every morning, and make sure that he or she sets out for school on time every day. Establishing these routines and priorities will show your child from an early age that schooling is a priority in your household. Take an active role in your child’s school whenever possible. Volunteer in your child’s classroom and go to parent-teacher meetings. Keep appointments with teachers and school administrators. If possible, see your child off to school every day before going to work yourself. Check your child’s homework, read all letters home from the teacher, and sign forms whenever necessary. Acknowledge the requests that the teacher sends home. These subtle details will show your child that you respect and prioritize his or her education.

For second semester we are also having a contest between grade levels to see which class can make the most growth on their reading and math fluency. The class with the most growth gets the school trophy for the month! Will your child’s class be the next winner? Help them practice reading every night, and review their basic math facts to get them closer to the benchmark goals. Our goal is to make sure we get all students to benchmark and we are well on our way to reaching that goal!

Josh Peebles

Sincerely,

Josh Peebles
