Wellness Wednesday

Ownership: Accept responsibility for your actions. Be accountable for your results.

This week the students participated in an assembly to celebrate their accomplishments and ownership of raising close to 1000 canned goods for the local SHARE pantry. It took 2 car loads to deliver the products to SHARE who was very thankful for the contributions for the holiday season. Thank you families!

AMS Dismissal Plan

Thank you to everyone who has been following the expectations for pick up at the end of the day. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated. All students exit the front of the building and cars pick up in the front of AMS. Thank you!
