Thanksgiving Break Check-Out Procedures

With Thanksgiving break approaching, to ensure a more efficient way for you to check your child out of school during the day, the following procedure should be followed:

  • In an effort to avoid interrupting instructional time on the intercom, students MUST have a note designating the time that they should meet you in the front office.
  • Notes should be brought to the front office in the morning for authorization. The signed note will allow your child leave class at the designated time and meet you in the front office.
  • Students without notes will not be called out of class until the parent arrives. (For example, we will not call them out of class when you call from your car). For this reason, you may experience delays if your child does not have a note giving prior notification of the early dismissal.
  • Transportation changes must be made prior to 3:00 p.m.
  • No check-outs without a note after 3:30 p.m.

Your cooperation with our check out procedure will help keep classroom interruptions to a minimum and will get you on your way in a timely manner.

Fall Play, Aladdin Jr.

AMMS students have worked hard to bring a “Whole New World” to audiences with their production of “Aladdin Jr.” on Saturday, November 16th at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Johns Creek High School auditorium. Note: Change of date and time

Based on Disney’s 1992 Academy Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show, Aladdin JR. tells the story of a “diamond in the rough” street rat who finds that the true value of who he is lies within. Down on his luck Aladdin (8th grader Brady Carnesale) and his three friends, Babkak (8th grader Heart Tria), Omar (6th grader Camden Yount), and Kassim (8th grader Cole Hall), locate a magic lamp, and an all powerful Genie (8th grader Katie Burkett) informs Aladdin of three wishes he can be granted. With this change of fate, Aladdin begins an adventure that will put his moral character and will to the test in an attempt to earn the admiration of Princess Jasmine (8th grader Ella Meyers).

More than 50 students have been involved in putting put this show together since September under the guidance of drama director Shelly McCook, chorus director Vanessa Edwards, and choreographer Maddie Tweed.

Tickets can be purchased online at Tickets can also be purchased just before showtime at JCHS, but please know it's cash only at the door. Shows begin at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Johns Creek High School auditorium, 5575 State Bridge Road.
