Happy Spring!!

It is very hard to believe that the third nine weeks is complete and we are just weeks now from spring break. Our students and teachers are work-ing hard to finish their curricula and begin their review for SOL testing.

Eighth grade students will begin SOL testing with the Writing test adminis-tered March 22, 23, and 24. The rest of our student body will complete SOL testing during the month of May. You will receive dates and times as we get nearer to testing. Please help students perform their best by making sure they receive a good night’s sleep, eat a filling and healthy breakfast, and get to school on time. Please remind students that while we want them to do their best, the SOL test is one test on one day. Their score has never and will never define them. We look forward to having our students amaze us during testing with all they have learned this year.

As you are working with your student

at home, please remind them how important it is in life to have grit. Our students are amazing individuals. There’s not much they can’t accom-plish if they believe in themselves and are willing to put in the hard work. Remind them that their teachers are here and willing to help them at any time. Encourage them to seek assis-tance when they feel they need it. And most importantly to never give up on themselves.

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.

We are the Raiders and we don’t stop until we’re proud!!
