Happy Summer Break!!

As we wrap up another school year, I want to take a moment to say how proud I am of our students and staff.  Our school theme this year has been "Don't stop until you're proud!"  I can honestly say that I have seen and experienced that determination to succeed from our students and staff all year.  From students asking teachers for more information to teachers working with students during their planning periods or staying after school with them, there has been no lack of hard work and perseverance from our AMS community.  It is this dedication and grit that has paid off for our individual students with grades and personal achievements and for our teachers with test scores and personal instructional goals.  We have worked hard, and we ARE proud!!

This summer AMS will house summer school for middle and high school students.  Summer school starts Monday, June 5th and runs through June 29th.   Student hours for summer school are 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., Monday through Thursday.  We are adding a new STEM component to our summer school day where teachers and students will be able to explore some math and science concepts through fun, hands-on discovery lessons.  We are excited to offer our students this new opportunity.

Please feel free to call AMS with any concerns or questions you may have at any point over the summer.  Our students have accomplished great things this year with parents, students, teachers, and administrators working together.  Thank you for being an instrumental part of your child's success at school.  We can't do it without you.


Cheryl J. Servis, Ed.D.
