Parental input and involvement is highly valued at AMS. Studies indicate that children whose parents and/or guardians share in their education tend to do better in school. Some of the benefits identified as the result of greater parental involvement include higher overall grades and test scores, greater potential for long-term academic achievement, and positive attitudes and behavior. In addition, parental involvement encourages successful school programs which leads to all-around better schools.
One of the ways in which we encourage parent involvement is through our monthly Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) meetings. Parent voices are extremely important in helping to shape our school and PAC meetings provide a crucial platform for open parent-school communication. At AMS, we realize we would not be the excelling school we are today without the dedication and commitment of our valued parents.
Please consider attending our upcoming PAC meetings scheduled as follows:
PAC meetings begin at 5:30 pm with a pizza fundraiser and are held in the AMS cafeteria. The pizza fundraiser is followed by the meeting for parents and a movie for students. The meetings adjourn at 7:00 pm.
