Mrs. Wheeler will have after school help for Algebra I students on Thursday's until 4:15.  Students must come with a note from home stating they can stay after school and will be picked up at 4:15.  Please turn in your notes to your homeroom teacher every Thursday.  No note from home means you can NOT stay after school.

Ms. K. Williams would like to give a shout out to two of her Discovery Students for working so hard on re-doing their PowerPoints that were lost!  Way to go!

Fall is the time when schools and communities lay out expectations for the year and welcome families as key partners in their children's education.  It is a crucial time for sending the message that all of us can help children learn and succeed in the classroom by nurturing a habit of daily attendance and removing any barriers to getting to school.

In recognition of September being Attendance Awareness Month we are giving away t-shirts that say on the front:

Attendance Works

Come and Learn

Fall Dance Permission slip





Welcome back to school for the 2017-2018 school year!  We are excited to have students in our classrooms and hallways once again.  We have missed our rising 7th and 8th graders and couldn't wait to meet our rising 6th graders.  We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students and staff last year.  They raised SOL scores in several areas, won numerous competitions, and logged hours of community service time.  AMS rocks!!

Our teachers have been working hard this summer with various trainings and preparing for the wonderful things we have in store at AMS this fall.  Our school theme for the 2017-2018 school year will continue to be:  "Don't stop until you're proud!!"  We talked with students about developing grit and perseverance last year.  We want to continue those conversations by encouraging our students to never give up and to believe in themselves as we believe in them. 

Please feel free to call AMS with any concerns or questions you may have now or at any point during the school year.  Our students will accomplish great things with parents, students, teachers, and administrators working together.  


Cheryl Servis, Ed.D.
