"May" We Finish Strong!

It's not always about how you start the process, but it's always how you finish!

At AMS, we expect our students to finish the school year on a strong, positive, and productive note. All students have a clean slate starting in May! However, if a student is assigned ISS or OSS during the month of May, then Field Day (May 24) will no longer be an option for that student. Let's finish strong!

It's Time for Re-Enrollment!

We are excited to welcome your family back with us for another great year! Student re-enrollment is now open for the 2019-2020 school year. All students are expected to complete re-enollment by May 10, 2019.

Our school system uses an online enrollment service called SchoolMint. SchoolMint saves your family information from your current registration and automatically populates many of the required forms, making annual re-enrollment a simple and efficient experience. From your smartphone, use the free SchoolMint app for best results. From your computer, follow this link to re-enroll: No codes are necessary for re-enrollment. Help and computers are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm at the Board of Education Central Office. For more information, visit or call 256.233.6600.
