AMS Pirate Nation,


I am honored to announce that our 2018-2019 Teacher Of The Year is Mrs. Michelle Jackson.   Mrs. Jackson teaches English I to our 8th grade students.    We all appreciate her commitment to her students and unselfish acts of kindness to support her team in the 8th grade hallway.    Congratulations to Mrs. Jackson, and “Thank You” for all you do!


Also, it’s an honor to announce that our 2018-2019 Paraprofessional Of The Year is Mr. Tom Watson.   Mr. Watson has taken on additional roles in helping build a unified culture for our students and staff.    He is always good for a smile and a “hello”, or even a “Merry Christmas” throughout the year.    Congratulations and “Thank You” Mr. Watson for all you do!


Next Thursday evening on March 28th,  all 6th & 7th grade parents are invited to AMS at 6:00pm to hear details for next year’s course selections.   It is now time for our 6th & 7th grade students to begin their registrations for next school year.    Please make plans to come next Thursday at 6pm to learn more about next year’s course offerings. 


I would like to say a special “Thank You” to everyone who came to Sonic Spirit Night on Tuesday evening.   We raised $637 for our AMS PTO from tips as over 40 teachers and staff came to out to deliver food.   Sonic set a record for dinner sales that night with well over $2000 in food sold.   They were very excited to set a sonic dinner record, and we thoroughly enjoyed our fun night together with students, staff, and families. 


Next week, we will have our annual Spring Scholastic Book Fair in the Library.   If your child would like to purchase something from the book fair, all classes will have the opportunity to shop and make their selections.   If you would like to volunteer as a parent to help, you can contact Kristen Callihan via email.   


Friday, April 5th is the last day of the 5th six weeks.   We will be dismissing school early at 12:45pm.  

Thursday, April 18th is now a Student Holiday, and a Teacher Staff Development Day.   Students will have a long 5 day weekend from April 18-April 22.  


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