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.

All of Mrs. Schaffner’s students need to bring a book to class to read today.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This summer I accepted the position of Supervisor of Instruction and Federal Programs with Appomattox County Public Schools.  Dr. Bennett, our Division Superintendent, and Mr. McMillan, our Director of Finance and Human Resources, took a great deal of time to find the right candidate to assume leadership of Appomattox Middle School.  At the end of August, Julie Amos was named as the new Principal of AMS.  Mrs. Amos has spent her career as a teacher and an administrator in ACPS at Appomattox County High School.    Mrs. Amos has been on maternity leave since the birth of her first child this summer.  She will assume the role of AMS Principal on October 15th.   I look forward to watching how AMS grows and achieves under her leadership.

While I am excited to be working with all our wonderful ACPS schools in my new role, it will be very difficult for me to leave Appomattox Middle School, our students, and this amazing faculty.    I am very proud of our students, our faculty, and what we have been able to accomplish together.  I have been blessed to work with the most outstanding and caring educators in the world for the last 22 years as a teacher, an assistant principal, and as principal at AMS.

Thank you for allowing me the honor to work with and serve your children at Appomattox Middle School.  Over the years, I have learned from them and grown from them, but most importantly, I have loved them.  My heart will always be in the hallways of Appomattox Middle School.


Cheryl J. Servis, Ed.D.

Proud AMS Teacher, Assistant Principal, and Principal for the last 22 years
