Put your hats on!! Parents and friends... We're partnering with the McDonald County Sheriff's Department to help those in need this Christmas Season. 🎄 The Department's The Shop with a Hero program is raising money to buy Christmas gifts for children whose families may not be able to provide them this year. They have a goal of helping 200 families. Please help us raise money for this wonderful program by letting your student wear a hat 🧢 to school with a $1 donation on Wednesday, December 1st. This applies to all schools and all campuses. Let's show how much we care for every child, every day, whatever it takes this Holiday Season! 💕 🤲

Breaking: McDonald County R-1 School Board, after a careful review of current COVID related statistics for both student and staff in the district, voted on Thursday evening to ease several of the COVID restrictions which have been in place during the 2020-2021 school year. Effective immediately, the board has voted to change the mask mandate. As of the May 13th vote, mask will be optional instead of mandatory for both students and staff. In addition, parents and volunteers are once again permitted on campuses and in school buildings as they have been in previous years.
Our students rocked day 1 of our map testing!! 👍👊 We will be testing ELA tomorrow with students and 8th Science on Thursday. Just wanted to let you know how awesome your kiddos were today. Keep pumping them up at home. It makes a huge difference! Have a great day! - Mr. Gray
JH Baseball will not be playing today. Providence Academy has a Covid outbreak. The boys will still come to AMS like they normally would for practice. They will turn in jerseys and then be free to go home. Student-athletes can be picked up about 3:30 or they can ride the normal activity bus. Thank you all for the support all year long.
