WE ARE THE RAIDERS AND WE DON'T

STOP UNTIL WE'RE PROUD


 

October 11, 2019

 

A message from Dr. Servis:

My dear AMS Students,

As most of you know, I accepted a new position with our school division over the summer.  I got to spend these first nine weeks with you because your new principal, Mrs. Amos, had a baby this summer and needed time to take care of him before she could come take care of all of you.  Mrs. Amos will start as the Principal of AMS on Tuesday.  I will get to spend next week helping her learn all about AMS, but today will be my last day as your principal.

I want you all to know how much I have enjoyed being your principal.  I have been at AMS for more than half my life and I have loved every minute of it.  I will miss all of you and all the fabulous people who make AMS the wonderful place that it is.  I look forward to visiting and seeing all the ways in which you will grow and be successful.

Never forget … we are the Raiders and we don’t stop until we’re proud!!

Please follow your 2-hour Early Dismissal Schedule today.  Bells will be turned off.

Spring Football begins this week.  All students planning on playing football in the fall are highly encouraged to attend these 15 Spring Work-out sessions.

Sessions will be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Wear t-shirts, shorts, and tennis shoes.  Please bring your cleats (if you have them).

Teen Time in the Light will meet this Friday afternoon from 3:30 – 4:45.

NJHS officers and members – please remember to bring in your candy donations by April 12th.  You may give them to Mrs. Gilliam or Mrs. MacGregor.  Every member should donate at least one bag.

8th graders – Permission slips and money for the Kings Dominion field trip are due no later than Friday, April 12th.  We have filled up the first charter bus and have started a waiting list for the second bus.

Students who leave on Walker's bell at the front of the school, you must wait for the Crossing Guard to give you the okay to cross.  Do not cross the street on your own.  It is not safe to do so until she has given you the okay.

Happy Birthday today to Kevin Fitch!
