April 14th AMSHS Weekly Update
Building independent lifelong learners.
Hello Warrior Family!
Summer School forms were due today. We are offering Summer School for all 6th and 7th grade students. Summer school is from May 23rd-June 16th. There will be field trips and fun activities. It is a great opportunity for our middle school students and we hope your child can be part of this program.
Prom is just around the corner. There is a letter below giving more detailed information about prom. Students need to be academically eligible and in good standing with attendance. Juniors also need to meet the requirements set forth by sponsors with volunteer hours. If you have any questions, please let us know.
Last semester students were informed about the Food Truck Party on May 4th. Students who are academically eligible, have no more than 7 unexcused absences, and have not been to ISS or OSS 2nd Semester are eligible to attend.
We will go to Silas Park where we currently have 4 food trucks scheduled to set up and serve to students. Students can play outdoor games, listen to music, hang with friends, and enjoy the sun! Money for food trucks is not provided. There will be a flyer and more information on this coming soon!

6th grade ELA, 7th Math, 8th Math, Alg I & Government will be testing this week. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and is on time to school.
Next week, 6th and 8th grade will be testing. We are nearing the end of the school year and wish all students the best while they are testing! If anyone would like to donate prepackaged snacks for students to have while testing, we would greatly appreciate it. Please have your student bring any donations to Mrs. Carlock. Thank you!

NHS Blood Drive
The National Honor Society is hosting another blood drive this year (Yes, again!):
Friday, April 21
Noon to 6 p.m.
First Baptist Church Albany
Our goal is to exceed the 78 units we collected in January.
Please help if you can. One out of three people will need blood during their lives. There is no substitute for human blood and red blood cells are perishable, lasting only 45 days. We believe this is an important cause and a great way to give back to our community. If successful, scholarship money is given to NHS.
If you can give, you will get a free T-Shirt (Fight the Good Fight) at the drive AND NHS will buy you a fountain drink the week after.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, please email me and we will add you to the list. If you would like to walk in, that's great, too.
Important Information About Student Academics
Per our handbook policy, students who are not eligible are not allowed to attend any extracurricular activities or functions. Ineligible students may attend practice but cannot dress out for games. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher, coach, or the office.
Each student is allotted 7 days to be absent each semester without a doctor's note. If your child is absent, please contact the office and bring a doctors note upon return so their absence is excused and not counted towards these 7 days. If your child has more than 7 unexcused absences, they will need to attend Monday school to receive semester credit.
Students receive independent reading time daily in class so we have decided to incorporate the AR program into your child's classroom grade. Each teacher has a plan on how this will be accomplished. This information was shared with students. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher.
Students who have more than 3 missing assignments could serve lunch detention so they can work on missing assignments.
The handbook policy states students may have 7 absences per semester. Please make sure you turn in doctor's notes to the office. Monday school notes went home this week with students. Monday school is by appointment only. If your child needs to schedule a session, please call the office.
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.
