Students ... there should be NO decorations on the outside of your lockers unless the school has placed a sports emblem on them for team participation.  All stickers and photos and any other decorations on the outside of the locker should be removed immediately.  If they are not removed, they will be removed by our custodial staff.

Happy spring!!

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

Our eighth grade students have taken the Writing SOL tests.  We can't wait to get the results!! 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 accomplish 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 assistance 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!!


Cheryl Servis, Ed.D.
