Student Council Association
About Student Council at AMS
The Student Council Association's goal is to make and keep the Athens Middle School one that encourages and maintains among its student body, good citizenship, and cooperative spirit. Our purpose is to encourage active participation in student decision making in the projects of our school and to carry through the responsibility of their decisions. Students benefit from being a part of the Student Council by developing leadership and becoming more responsible.
Each homeroom class will elect an Ambassador to represent them. Students who are interested in becoming an Ambassador, write an essay explaining why they would be best for the part. Students will present their essay to their class, and each class will vote for who they think will be the best leader. Ambassadors are expected to be leaders and make choices that reflect their leadership status. Any conduct deemed inconsistent with the purpose of SCA might result in permanent removal from the council. Ambassadors are required to attend all meetings. If you acquire two unexcused absences from consecutive meetings, you will be removed from SCA. The only excused absence from a meeting is an excused absence from school.
The Student Council at AMS participates in several fundraisers and events throughout the school year. In the past, students have helped host a canned food drive around Christmas, in which all donations go to the Limestone County Churches Involved. SCA sponsors a Christmas Angel. Each year, we go on a Service Project field trip. We went to the Downtown Rescue Mission in Huntsville and helped sort clothes that have been donated for people in need.

Welcome to Student Council! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor SCA and help students grown and learn.
I am a sixth grade math teacher, and this is my fourth year of teaching. I graduated from Athens High School in 2011, and then went on to Auburn University to pursue my degree in Secondary Math Education. I graduated with my Bachelors Degree from Auburn in 2015. I am currently working on my Masters Degree in Instructional Leadership from The University of West Alabama. I am so thankful to be home teaching in the school system where I grew up!
I have been married to my husband, Joel, for three years. We enjoy spending time with our 12 nieces and nephews and all things Auburn. War Eagle! We are members of Lindsay Lane Baptist Church. I also enjoy shopping, running, attending sporting events, and being at home with my sweet husband.

Mrs. Daylee Downs
I am a Limestone County native and have been an English teacher since 2004, working in Athens City Schools since 2006. Being in the classroom, to me, is very self-rewarding. Being alongside kids learning is motivating. I love writing, grammar, and reading! In my classroom, I employ a flexible seating arrangement and strive to make students feel comfortable and build relationships with me and with one another. I love to encourage discussions about what we are learning. Teaching is my love, and I love my students and my job!
I am married to Torrey Downs, who is a battalion chief for Athens Fire & Rescue. We have two boys, Clay and Hudson, and one dog named Dudley. My family loves jeeping, swimming, sports, being outdoors, and spending time with family. We attend Lindsay Lane Baptist Church in Athens, AL.
