Eighth grade Accelerated ELA/Social Studies students work for months to complete their National History Day projects in preparation for judging at AMS in hopes to go on to the district and national competition.
Each Spring, we turn the Library Learning Commons into a Poetry Cafe complete with cappuccino, danishes, jazz music, a microphone and stage! Students are encouraged to take the stage to share original poetry or some of their favorites.
At AMS, we place a strong emphasis on literacy. Students are encouraged to read books that interest them, as well as books on their lexile level in order to keep them interested but also keep them challenged.
AMS has an annual Spelling Bee. ELA classes conduct a bee to choose a winner to compete in the AMS school-wide Spelling Bee. Sixth-eighth grade students will compete in this bee as representatives from their ELA classes. The school winner represents AMS at a local competition against other area school winners.
Find your own passion- not your friends', not your parents', not your teachers' yours! The Student Voice was created to give AMS students a place to explore their passions and interests. Sometimes the typical school day does not give students the opportunity to dive into their passions, and this is an opportunity for students to connect with like-minded students who share similar interests.
