Welcome back!! 

What a joy it is to have the energy and excitement of students and staff back on our AMS hallways!  We hope everyone had a wonderful break and has returned to school rejuvenated for second semester.  Our students will be welcomed into new science or social studies classes, as well as a new Encore class for second semester.  Please feel free to contact the new teachers on your child's schedule with any concerns or questions.  Your child will have a syllabus for each new class, but teacher contact information is always available on the AMS website. 

We are very proud to report that the first round of SOL testing for our 8th grade Civics and Physical Science classes yielded very exciting results.  We know that a great deal of hard work, grit, and perseverance by both students and teachers went into preparing for these tests.  Our school motto is "We don't stop until we're proud!!"  Our students and teachers embodied that sentiment not only in regards to their own accomplishments, but in helping one another succeed.   

We want our students to understand the power of determination and collaboration.  We will continue to emphasize the importance of believing in yourself and working hard with students as we introduce weekly lessons in Discovery second semester on these topics.  We will discuss how much is learned in school and in life when we work through a struggle.  Being kind and working well with classmates of all different backgrounds will also be topics of discussion.  

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!!


Cheryl Servis, Ed. D.
