A Letter To Amity Middle School Parents:

In one more week we will be meeting and greeting our new 7th grade students and our returning 8th graders. We also have thirteen new students enrolling in AMSO from other towns and states.

The first day of school is Monday, Aug. 31.  The day begins at 7:34 a.m. and ends at 2:18 p.m. On the first day, students should bring a small notebook and a pencil or pen.

A packet has been mailed to your homes with important information including bus stops, PowerSchool, InfoSnap, MyPaymentsPlus along with a parent/student packet regarding such things as student absence procedures, appropriate attire, café…..etc. If you have not received this information, please call the school so we can mail it to you, or you are welcome to come by the school and pick one up. The school is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. In fact, students are most welcome to visit and check out their classrooms and teams.

Throughout the year I will send an email at least once a week, mostly on Fridays. I hope you will find the information helpful and informative. Very soon we will be posting a calendar to our website with important upcoming dates and events. The calendar will be continually updated.

The following link will take you directly to the AMSO homepage.

Enjoy the rest of August!

All the best,

The first fundraising event of the year has begun. With the PTSO, we are selling KidStuff Coupon Savings Books. Homeroom teachers have passed out a Ziploc bag containing KidStuff books and directions, for each student to bring home. We are asking students to sell at least two books. The books sell for $25.00 and we make a 50% profit on each book.

If a student is enrolled in the band, strings or choir, the first book sold will go to the PTSO and the second book’s profit will go to the music department to be allocated towards the individual student’s cost of his or her spring trip.

This is one of the largest fundraisers of the year and we need your support.

The fundraiser will run from Sept. 15 to Sept. 26.
