November 18th AMSHS Weekly Update

Building independent lifelong learners.

Principal's Corner


Hello Warrior Family!


It's getting pretty chilly so make sure you dress appropriately. For the general cleanliness and the security reasons, we are NOT allowing blankets at school anymore. Students may bring an extra sweatshirt and are encouraged to wear pants when it is cold. Blankets will not be permitted and students who bring a blanket to school will be told to leave it in their lockers to store until the end of the day. Your help in this matter is appreciated.


We DO have school Monday, November 21st. Buses will run normal routes and learning will take place in our classrooms so please make sure your child is in attendance.


AMSHS Picture Make Up Day has been rescheduled for November 30th at 1:30PM. Senior proof plan make ups, Yearbook Groups, HS Basketball, Wrestling, and Cheer will be at this time.


We will break for Thanksgiving November 23rd-25th. There is so much to be thankful for and we hope you have a great holiday with your family and loved ones.


GO WARRIORS!

Hey Warriors!


We’ve had a great week. The seniors were able to visit with a marine recruiter and a representative from North Central Missouri College. I’ve been visiting with seniors for a November check in. Here are a few reminders for seniors:


  • The Grace Foundation Scholarship is due December 16th.

  • Make sure you complete the FAFSA if you are college or technical school bound.

  • A scholarship packet will go home with all seniors when they return from Christmas break.


Dual Credit students: if you have not turned in your dual credit enrollment form for next semester, please do so as soon as possible.


Next week we have a short week. See everyone Monday; have a great Thanksgiving break!

Important Information About Student Academics

Attendance letters for Monday School were mailed home this week. Students who do not have a high enough attendance are required to attend Monday School to receive credit. We will have two 4 hour blocks of Monday school on 11/28, 12/5, and 12/12. Students must sign up to attend. Parents can call the office for more information and to scheduling.


Attendance is an important part of academic success. 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.


The following dates 1st semester. You will be notified if there are concerns. There are tutoring options available. If you have any questions about grades, please contact your child's teacher.

November 28th

December 9th and 21st


Students who have more than 3 missing assignments could serve lunch detention so they can work on missing assignments.


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.


Tardy letters were given to students with excessive tardies. We did not enforce tardy policies firmly 1st Quarter so the students could have time to adjust, but we will 2nd Quarter. Please see the handbook for more information on our tardy policy and disciplinary action.
