On behalf of our entire school family, I would like to welcome you to AMS, home of the Tigers! We are incredibly excited for the 2019-2020 school year to begin, and looking forward to embarking on a new year that will be filled with many opportunities for all of our students.  We will continue to provide our students with a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events, extracurricular activities, and athletic teams to encourage our students to be involved and connected.  During the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to build upon our theme of "Be the One." If you are new to AMS, you will find out quickly that we are a collaborative community that works hard to help every student succeed.  AMS utilizes many pathways and programs to provide our students with an excellent education and engaging middle school experience.
     The staff at AMS make a difference in the lives of our students. Our staff consists of many dedicated teachers, support staff, custodians, content area specialists, secretaries, a guidance counselor, and nurse . The entire faculty and staff work together to design challenging learning experiences and support systems for our students. The staff is an integral part of the decision making process.
    AMS provides dynamic programs for our students in a technology-rich environment. We also support social and emotional learning through our Advisory program.  We want students to feel safe and comfortable while they are here in school. We believe that all students are different and each have something special to offer.  Every month, the staff and students participate in All School Meetings which recognizes the successes of students and staff. 
    With the support of organizations such as the Parent Teacher Organization, Alexandria Township Education Foundation, Sports Boosters, and Polyphonic Parent Association, we are able to provide our students with innovate programs. I encourage you to become involved and join their efforts in supporting our school. The best way to become familiar with our school is to become involved in our activities and programs.  Your active participation is the key to success for your child during his/her middle school years. 
    Again, we welcome you to AMS and to our learning community....a place that is alive with energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence, where opportunities abound and adventure awaits. Welcome to the AMS Family!
