Sept 23rd AMSHS Weekly Update

Building independent lifelong learners.

Principal's Corner


Hello Warrior Family!


Tonight we celebrate our seniors participating in band, cheer, golf, and football. On Monday, we celebrate softball seniors as well. We honor their achievements and the leadership they have shown in our school and community. These students have grown and sacrificed a lot over the years and are an amazing group but they did not make these sacrifices alone. The Class of 2023 has a strong support system that has believed in them and supported them along the way.


Senior Night is a proud tradition and I wanted to thank those who surround these seniors with so much love and support. For the rides to practice, early morning wake ups and late night dinners after games, thank you. We have enjoyed watching every minute of their success and will miss seeing them showcase under the Friday night lights. These young people have a bright future and we are excited to see where life takes them.


Come support our seniors tonight and celebrate their achievements with us at 6:30PM.


Go Warriors!

Grade Checks, Missing Assignments, and Tardies

Our first official Grade Check was today for eligibility. You will still be notified if there are concerns. There are tutoring options available. If you have any questions about grades, please contact your child's teacher.


Attendance is also part of your child's eligibility. We require 90% attendance to be eligible but there is an appeals process if something unforeseen were to occur. Letters were sent home today for students who are not eligible because of attendance. For more information on this, please talk to your child's coach or call the office.


Grade checks will be the following dates 1st semester.

September 23rd

October 14th

November 4th and 25th

December 9th and 21st


We did not count tardies for the first 2 weeks of school so students could get the hang of lockers but we did start counting tardies this week and informed the students of this daily. Per our handbook policy, after the 6th tardy, students will serve an after school detention. Please see the disciplinary section of the handbook for more information about our tardy policy.
