Bullying:  On Monday and Tuesday of this week, students and staff at AMS were talking about the posters around the school with inappropriate words AND End Bullying messages. Our point was made: we are having discussions about the words students are calling each other and now we want to say Not In My School! END Bullying! We don’t want to hear these words even if you’re saying them as a joke to a friend!

Take time to notice the new posters. Read them and be part of ending name calling in our school. Learn how to stop bullying when you hear it or see it.
