AMS Pirate Nation,



AMS Student Council received the highest honor possible from the Texas Association of Student Councils, “Sweepstakes Council”, for achieving awards in five categories.   The five categories are Pride and Patriotism, Energy  and Environment, Drugs Alcohol Safety Health (DASH), Community Service, and Outstanding Student Council.  High points in each of these categories combine to make the Sweepstakes Award.   Fewer than 20% of TASC member schools are recognized in one or more areas, so this is quite an accomplishment.   This award includes a blue ribbon, a plaque, and five certificates of merit.   We are very proud to receive this award two years running.   Thanks for always supporting Student Council, and congratulations to our AMS Sponsors, Mrs. Carrie Jones & Mrs. Atyka Ditto.



All Library Materials are DUE today to the library.   If you know of any books, equipment, or supplies that may need returned, please have your child return those as soon as possible.   



5-20-19         6th Grade Field Day / Last Normal Bell Schedule Day

5-21-19         Pep Rally Bell Schedule / Volunteer Breakfast at 8am / Yearbook Signing Party last 45 minutes of the day

5-22-19         AMS Rachel’s Challenge Day / EARLY DISMISSAL AT 12:45PM

**** On Wednesday, students will not need to bring Bags, Binders, or Backpacks to school.   It will be a fun day for our students and staff.   We will have a “bag / backpack check” at each door to ensure students do not bring unnecessary items for the last day of school.   

**** On Wednesday Rachel’s Challenge Day, Normal Dress Code will be enforced.   Thank you for helping ensure your child is dressed appropriately for this fun filled day on our last day of school.   Thank you for helping us in this endeavor to provide a safe environment for all on our last day of school. 

Students may bring a sack lunch on our Early Release day, just no bags or backpacks.

NOTE:   Students will be in groups scattered all over the campus on Wednesday, so please do not check out your child from school unless absolutely necessary.   If you do come to AMS to pick up your child during Rachel’s Challenge Day, it will take time to locate them and get them to the front.    We highly advise to let them complete the day in order to minimize confusion in having to track students down.    We will be able to help in cases of emergency if needed. 


AMS Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast - May 21st

We want to extend our thanks and gratitude to every parent or family member who volunteered for our various activities throughout this 2018-2019 school year.  Your support and time given is integral to AMS and we appreciate everything you do for the teachers and students.  Please don't forget to attend the AMS Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast at 8:00 AM on Tuesday May 21st  in the Library.  It is not a formal event but just a way to say THANK YOU for your service to the school.  If you supported the students, teachers or school in any way please come and have coffee, juice and a breakfast snack so the students and staff can say thanks and show their appreciation!



Please make sure you pick up any medication from the nurses office before the last day of school.    ALL unclaimed medications and medical supplies will be properly disposed of this summer. 


It has been a pleasure serving you & your family this school year.   Thank you for allowing us to educate your child, it’s an honor.
