May 5 - PTO Luncheon
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week our local PTO provided a wonderful lunch to the AMS teachers/staff.

Ms. Marla Jones Class Project
After reading the novel Touching Spirit Bear, students in Mrs. Jones's class had the opportunity to create projects like totem poles.  In the novel, the main character is on a path of self-discovery, and he creates a totem pole to heal from the scars of his past.

Awesome totem pole!

Parent Survey
We are requesting that you complete the parent feedback survey on how we as a school district are doing in serving your child.  You should have received this survey invitation via e-mail Sunday, May 3.  If you did not receive the survey electronically, it is because we do not have your correct e-mail address in our system.    Please contact Lynn McKinney via e-mail at so that she may send you an electronic invitation. 

We would like to stress that this parent survey is confidential and your responses are anonymous as the results are tabulated and reported to us through a contracted third party. Your responses are critical as we will utilize your feedback in determining our specific campus goals for improvement. 
Thank you for sharing your child with us.  We look forward to reviewing your responses.
