AMS Pirate Nation,



Thank you to all parents who were able to make our 6th & 7th grade parent meeting last night.   If you were not able to make it, I have attached the link to our presentation.   Click the link below to review the presentation for next year’s courses.  

**NOTE one change for the Mandatory AMS Boys Athletic Meeting will be held on Thursday, April 25th at 5:30pm here at AMS.   

**Also, for 6th grade boys going into 7th grade Athletics, you can sign up for your specific Remind 101 account by texting @7boysath19 to 81010.



May 2nd we will host the GISD Physicals and Immunization clinic here at AMS from 1pm – 5pm.     All students participating in extra-curricular activities must have a physical on file AND all incoming 7th grade students next year must have their TDAP and MCV immunizations updated.    ATTENTION 6th GRADE PARENTS!    You will need to check your child’s immunization records to ensure your child is updated on their shots.    If they are not, they will not receive a schedule in August for school, and that is not fun for the family!   So, hopefully this reminder will serve you and your family well to ensure 7th grade schedules are in hand at the time of distribution next August.  



Each year, we invite parents to participate in a school wide survey to help us as a staff and a school reflect on areas we can always improve.   If you did not have a chance to complete this survey at the parent meeting last night, please click the link below.    This one page, 24 question survey will take about 2-3 minutes to complete.    We value your opinion as a parent and partner for our school.



Next Friday is the end of our 5th six weeks.   We will release school at 12:45pm on Friday, April 5th.   We will have “Pirate Party” for all students who are passing all their classes as of Wednesday, April 3rd.   The end of year is right around the corner, so buckle up for a fast and furious last six weeks.     



This is important information for all parents to review from our GISD Handbook.   Unfortunately, we may not allow parents to bring lunch for friends, but only for your own child.   I never want to be the “food police”, yet guidelines prevent us from allowing parents to bring food for friends.    Thank you for your help on this situation. 

Please have the student bring his/her lunch or buy it at school every day. It is disruptive for parents to bring lunches to students after class has started. A parent may eat lunch with their student only. Parents cannot provide outside food to anyone but their own student. The parent must report to the front office to sign-in and receive a temporary ID.


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