Anchor Bay Middle School North Points of Pride

Mission Statement

The mission of Anchor Bay Middle School is to meet the needs of the students in becoming productive members of society and lifelong, enthusiastic learners.



Upcoming Events



Student Council and Green Team are sponsoring a used book drive. Students and parents are urged to donate books they no longer want or need. Students can turn books in to their Language Arts teachers, the library if Mrs. Cannon is here, Ms. Kessel, or Mrs. Dieterman. Any student that donates a book will receive a slip of paper to come back after the book drive, and choose a book of their choice from the donated books. Please encourage students to donate books they have already read and are willing to part with! This is a great chance to add books to our library and do a bit of recycling at the same time! 

Thanks in advance for your help and support. 

There has been an important change to this school year’s calendar.  We have been notified by local officials that a special election by Macomb Community College has been scheduled for May 8, 2018.  As a result, the professional development day originally scheduled for May 17, 2018 will be rescheduled to that day.  Therefore, there will be no school for K-12 students on May 8, 2018 for professional development/election day.  May 17th will be a regular school day for all students and staff.
