This week at AMS we celebrated Red Ribbon Week! This year’s theme is “Drug Free Looks Like Me!” The students spent time reflecting on what keeps them drug free. We will use these responses to create a visual for us to represent our healthy choices. Keep the conversation going at home with these short videos and discussions with your student at the dinner table or in the car! https://www.naturalhigh.org/playlists/

In recent years, our generous AMS community has supported the Manchester VA Hospital Outreach Program through the purchase of gift cards for groceries and gasoline. We will have collection jars in the lobby for donations of cash or checks made payable to AMS beginning November 1. Since 2014, we've raised over $12,000. Thank you in advance for your support!
