AMS Fundraiser

AMS Fundraiser will begin 8/27/18 and end on 9/11/18.

We are selling chocolate bars!  Please fill out the permission slip to allow your child to participate in the fundraiser.  There are many opportunities for them to win cash prizes depending on how many boxes of chocolate they sell.  

Once a student receives a box of chocolate they will not be able to return any unsold chocolate.  The student needs to bring back the $60 for the box of chocolate.  

Thank you for your help in raising money for AMS!  


The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching!  Our school Open House will take place on August 16th from 1:00 pm- 7:00 pm.  Please come see us during this time to get your schedule for the school year, meet your teachers, get your locker (and figure out how to work it), receive bus information, and tour the school. 

We will also have our PTO here to answer questions or help you become a part of AMS PTO!!

We are so excited for the new year and can't wait to see you here on 8/16/18!

Tdap Immunization for 6th Grade Students

Virginia law requires that all students entering sixth grade have a Tdap booster immunization prior to entry into school. Additionally, all new students enrolling in grades seven, eight, and nine must have had the Tdap booster prior to the start of school. Parents should consult with their health provider or the local health department if they have questions.
