AMS Pirate Nation,

 

STOP BEFORE BUYING THE MORNING DRINKS:

Each morning we have many students who come to school with their Sonic, Starbucks, Racetrac, and/or McDonalds drinks.   Everything is good when students have their drink and/or breakfast brought to school with them.   All students have been informed and reminded that drinks are NOT allowed to classes, only water bottles that seal closed.  (A lid and a straw is not sealed closed)    So, when students bring drinks in from outside, they must go to the cafeteria to finish their food and drinks before going to class.   I hope this helps as you plan your morning time.   I just don’t like to see when Starbucks drinks are half full and thrown away.   So, please be mindful of this school policy and thank you for your help.

 

PROJECT ADAM – AMS IS A HEART SAFE SCHOOL:

AMS & GISD have partnered with Cooks Children’s and Texas EMS to become a heart safe school.   We have been designated a heart safe school by effectively being certified through drills that require immediate attention to a potential patient going into cardiac arrest.    We have two defibrillator’s on campus, one in the administrators office area and the other in the athletics hallway.   This coming Thursday, March 7th we will have another drill with a “dummy” who is found unconscious somewhere in AMS, and our emergency team will be activated to render aide.     Please let your child know that we will be conducting drills periodically to stay alert and ready for if a student or staff member is ever in need.   

 

A” HONOR ROLL FOR 5TH SIX WEEKS RECIEVES FREE PASS TO SPLASH KINGDOM:

Any students who make the “A” Honor Roll for this six week will be awarded a FREE Pass to Splash Kingdom.   Students can see the posters around the front office area to learn more about this exciting opportunity.   Please encourage your child to work extra hard this six weeks to earn additional prizes as a recognition for all “A’s” this six weeks.

 

SPRING BREAK 2019

Next week will be a normal week with regular dismissal time at 4:15pm on Friday, March 8th.   Spring Break will be March 11-15.   

Just a reminder that our AMS Book Fair will be held the week we return from Spring Break.  

 

Thank you for allowing us to educate your child, it’s an honor.
