TEXTBOOK AND SCHOOL OWNED MATERIALS TURN IN
During the last week of school (6/15-6/19), AMS will have a student textbook and school-owned materials return process that will take place at the front entrance of the school.
Families are asked to return all school owned materials between 8am and 2pm on one of these days.
These items include:
– Library books
– Copy of the one school, one book: Posted
– Regents Algebra Graphing Calculators
– Studio Art loaned materials
Please have your child’s items in a plastic bag labeled with their name either inside or on the outside of the bag.
An AMS staff member will be stationed at the front entrance of the school and will collect the items from families.
Please do not get out of your vehicle.
Unfortunately due to traffic volume at the AMS Send Off Parade we will not be able to collect materials from families during the actual parade.
SUMMER ASSIGNMENT PACKETS & GRADE 8 CERTIFICATES
When you drop off your child’s materials, we also have a packet of materials for each AMS student. This envelope includes our summer math calendars, grade 8 Recognition Day Certificates and any other paper materials that we have for your child.
STUDENT ITEMS STILL AT AMS
As a reminder, families of students with materials still at AMS have been contacted and are asked to stop by AMS between 8am and 2pm any school day through Friday, June 16. At this point it is a very limited number of families that still need to pick up items. Materials that remain at AMS will be donated to local charities.
If you are unable to make it to AMS before June 16 and would like us to retain your child’s item, please call the main office at 518-674-7100. Thank you.
AMS END OF YEAR SEND OFF PARADE
Please join us for our “AMS End of Year Send Off Parade” on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 – 6:00pm-7:00pm (Rain Date: Thursday, June 18 – 6:00pm-7:00pm). At this event we will invite families to drive through the school parking lot as our grades 6-8 staff members greet and wish students well on the conclusion of a memorable school year.
Additionally, we will be honoring our Grade 8 students in particular with this event.
All AMS families from grades 6-8 are welcome to drive through beginning at 6pm.
To join in the fun, families can wear blue and gold, decorate your car or make a sign for the event.
We encourage grade 8 students to wear their Class of 2024 t-shirts for this event.
For the parade families will need to enter the campus from the Route 351 entrance.
Please see the attached map for more information:
It will be great to see all of you again soon!
