  • "May" We Finish Strong!

    It's not always about how you start the process, but it's always how you finish!

    At AMS, we expect our students to finish the school year on a strong, positive, and productive note.  All students have a clean slate starting in May! However, if a student is assigned ISS or OSS during the month of May, then Field Day will no longer be an option for that student.  Let's finish strong!
