AMCMS Principal's Office

What's Going on in the Principal's Office?!

An Open Letter to Teachers From a College Professor

My Challenge to You

This week, May 2 - May 6, is National Teacher Week. At AMCMS we are going to celebrate teacher week during the week of May 16 - May 20 because of two reasons. The first reason is that our PTO plays a huge role in Teacher Appreciation Week and many of our PTO members that are playing an active role are active at Oakwood and AMCMS. We want both campuses to have a week full of recognition that you deserve as a staff and since the PTO really supports this week we decided to have the official recognitions on two different weeks. Second, next week will be STAAR testing week and teacher recognition activities cannot be prepared well or fully enjoyed with STAAR testing going on at the same time.


I sure didn't want anyone to feel like teacher appreciation week had been forgotten. I want us to have a great week of appreciation and celebrations of you all.


You make a difference each and every day. So many people know this but so few actually take the time to tell you. What you do as an educator matters. Keep making a positive difference in the lives of our students.


Think. Achieve. Succeed.

Move it or lose it. Moving our bodies every day decreases the risk of heart disease and other chronic illnesses. It helps to reduce stress and maintains healthy bones and joints. Take a 10 minute walk three times a day five days a week. You will look and feel better.
