Attention Parents/Guardians: Today we distributed grade cards to all our AMS students, as well as certificates of completion to the 8th grade. Also all library books must be returned by tomorrow to avoid billing. Have a great afternoon!!

We are also providing pizza, drinks, and a dance for students only. The dance will conclude at 10:00 pm. -Mr. Gray

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
