Happy Friday Mustangs!

This was our first week of testing in a coming month of PSAT, M-Step, and NWEA tests. I must brag that our 8th graders were awesome! They came in ready to test and it all went very well. Please check below for M-Step testing updates!

The growing concern of the spread of COVID-19 is a constant topic of discussion. What I can say is that our students and parents have been great to work with, even when we are forced to quarantine due to the health department guidelines. Both parents and AMS admin and staff share the disappointment and frustration when we make a call to quarantine a student, we also both understand why and what’s at stake.

In the approach to mid-spring, we are gearing up for the fun spring brings! Celebrations, visits to the elementary schools to welcome our new 6th graders, and celebrating our 8th graders in their transition to becoming a Yellowjacket! Good things are on the horizon, let’s keep heading in the right direction together!

Have a great weekend Mustangs!
