PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Thank you students and families for a fantastic school year! We are proud of all that has been accomplished! Eighth graders, we are confident you are prepared and will do well in high school. It has been a joy to work with you. Be sure to come back and visit. Sixth and Seventh graders, we look forward to seeing you in August 2017. Have a fun and safe summer! - Principal Jessica Lloyd.

 

JUNE 15th 8:40 a.m. 8TH GRADE PROMOTION

8TH GRADE STUDENTS TO BE CHECKED OUT AFTER PROMOTION

The date is Thursday, June 15th at 8:40 a.m. adjacent to the new building on West Mall. Dress is casual. Parents, please let us know if you have a 6th grade student at another school promoting so we can move your middle school student to the front of the promotion line.


Before the ceremony begins handicap parking will be in the AMS parking lot in front of the new building on Lewis Avenue. General parking will be on West Mall. You will be directed to park diagonally by the staff. Parking will be limited this year due to the construction of the City Hall parking lot. Once the parking on West Mall is full additional visitors will be asked to park on the neighboring streets. Please allow plenty of time to safely park and walk onto campus. We will have additional chairs this year; however, seating tends to fill up quickly as well. A beach towel, beach chair, etc. are welcome. In addition, please call and let us know if you are in need of handicap seating. Contact information: Kim Miller, kimmiller@atasusd.org 462-4360.


Lastly, AMS will have sign-out sheets at the promotion certificate tables if you would like to take your 8th grade student home to celebrate with family.
