TOYS FOR TOTS COLLECTION
The AMS Student Council will hold its Toys for Tots Drive when students return to classes on Monday, December 2. If you are out doing holiday shopping over the long weekend, please consider purchasing an item to donate.
STUDENT COUNCIL HOLIDAY STORE
Next week the AMS Student Council will once again be organizing their “Holiday Store” outside of the cafeteria. The holiday store is essentially a flea market of donated gently used items from staff and community members. All items are priced at garage sale prices. Students are able to shop during their lunches for items that they can give as holiday presents to members of their families. This event was a huge success last year raising hundreds of dollars to purchase gift cards for AMS families in need during the holiday season, so that every student has a happy holiday. Thank you for your support of this great initiative.
GRADES 7 & 8 CHROMEBOOK REPAIR
As you may be aware, there have been a number of battery-related issues for the Grade 7 & Grade 8 Dell 5190 Chromebooks. As a result, Dell has agreed to send a team of technicians to AMS complete a firmware update to address the issue.
This requires students to turn in their Chromebooks at school for a 24-hour period to fix them.
On the dates listed below, students will turn in their Chromebook during Morning Meeting. These Chromebooks will be collected, fixed, and returned to students in Morning Meeting on the following day.
Below is the schedule for Chromebook collection and return:
