AMS introduces the new class of Warriors
Ashworth Middle School gave its new sixth grade students a crash-course seminar on what it means to be a “Warrior.”
The faculty and staff at Ashworth spoke of the importance of walking with a purpose and never settling for mediocrity as these new students join the Ashworth family from Swain, Red Bud, Tolbert, and Belwood Elementary schools on Wednesday, Aug. 24.
“Respect + Responsibility = Results” was the theme emphasized to a crowd of 230 students. Accomplished Ashworth alumni came down from Gordon Central High School to talk about the importance of being involved in academics, athletics, and other activities offered.
Expectations have never been higher at Ashworth as students continue to meet Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) standards in Georgia.
When asked how many students wanted to go to college, everyone raised their hands in collective excitement. Ashworth Middle School expects another great year of achieving, motivating, and succeeding in Gordon County.
