Huge Shout Out to our AMS One Act Play cast & crew who took FIRST place last Thursday at UIL competition.    Honorable Mention for Liz Heil, All Star Cast for Sykora Hatten & Lou Whiting, Best Actor to William Power, and Best Technician to Bleu Slater!    Excellent job to all for an outstanding performance!   They cleaned house at UIL OAP Competition.

Tickets have been on sale this week for our AMS PTO Spring Dance this Friday afternoon from 4:15pm-6:15pm.   Students may purchase tickets during lunches if they want to be released from class early on Friday.   Tickets will be on sale Friday during lunch if students are interested in purchasing their ticket.

**Parents who want to come to the dance to pick up your child must go through the front office as normal to check in, and be released to the dance area.   We look forward to a big turnout this Friday afternoon for our end of year spring dance and fun at AMS.

STAAR TESTING MAY 13-16

Please mark your calendars for May 13-16 that AMS Students will be testing that week.   It will be important that students are present at school (pending unforeseen circumstances) during those days to ensure they complete their required exams.  This year marks the first year of our new state accountability system for each campus which will receive a letter grade based on student performance.   Therefore, we want our students to perform well during that week.   Thanks for helping and supporting our students during testing week. 

 

AMS PTO SPIRIT NIGHT MAY 2ND

Be sure to mark your calendars for May 2nd to go to “Taste & See” off the square.   A portion of the sales that evening will be donated to our AMS PTO.   Hope to see you there!

 

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