          Welcome Back! 
         The 2020-2021 calendar year is about to start.  The end of last year brought many surprises for us, but we all managed to rise to the challenge!  The beginning of this year may look and feel a little different, too, but the staff at AMS will be working hard to begin smoothly.  Keep an open mind, remember to stay flexible as we dive into these still unchartered waters, and get ready for a successful school year!
     
         My role has changed for this year, although I will still be working with the upcoming 6th grade students, and am happy to guide the upcoming 5th grade students as well.  I am part of the 5th-6th Grade Team, working with Mr. Olcott in 6th grade language arts and with Mr. Allmer in 5th grade social studies.
