The Ames Middle School Science Research Group invites AMS staff and students to a Science Fair Open House during Period 3 on Tuesday in F102.  Drop in and find out about the exciting research going on in our building!  These students will be presenting their work at the State Science and Technology Fair of Iowa at the Hilton Coliseum on Friday, March 29.  The SSTFI is open to the public from 9 AM to 6 PM.  Researchers will be present at their displays until 4:30 PM.   We would love to see members of the Ames Middle School community (students, families, friends, and staff) there!

YWCA Girls Power

GIRLS Power is a mentoring program that pairs middle school girls with Iowa State University women.  We meet twice a month and discuss important topics such as women empowerment, leadership, self-esteem, careers…and we have fun bonding parties too!  Like movie nights, hide-n-seek, halloween parties, sleepovers, valentines day, and more.

Mentors and mentees also spend one-on-one time each month getting to know each other and doing fun things like crafts, making slim, seeing movies, ISU campus visits, and anything else they want to do!

Join the Fun Today!

This is a reminder to check your emails for the low-balance notifications from the district office.  The emails are sent out once per week and are sent once your student’s account balance reaches $25. Please check your spam folders for the emails, as many parents have said this email ends up going into their spam folder.

 

Also, we want to remind you that AMS has a breakfast program.  Breakfast is served at 7:40 AM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and at 9:10 AM on Wednesday.  A good breakfast helps to make for a great day of learning.

 

ACSD Food Service Department

Attention 2019-2020 7th grade parents: All students entering 7th grade must have proof of having both the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines before school starts in August, unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption. Please drop off, mail, fax or email us a copy of the documentation that the vaccine was given or documentation of an exemption from the vaccine signed by your child’s doctor. If you feel your student has had this vaccination, please contact their healthcare provider and have them fax or mail the school an updated record.

The Flu Season is Here. Have you received your flu shot? If not, you still have time. This is one of the best ways to protect yourself from getting the flu. Please read the attached CDC article about the flu and ways to stay healthy.

Remember to drop off your box tops and deliver them to your homeroom teacher!

 

For every Box Top you clip, your child’s school will receive 10 cents. Each school can receive up to $20,000 per school year from clipped Box Tops.

These funds are used for books, supplies, field trips, classroom parties and more.

This is a great way for our school to make money to use for the students and teachers, as they are items that are already in your kitchen.  Thank you so much! If you have any questions or ideas as to how to increase our collection numbers, or want to help, please contact Stephanie Bates at 515-450-7557.
