AMS Important Dates

AMS is going social!  Follow us on Instagram @amssaints or on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/amssaints


Your cooperation is greatly appreciated! Before and after school drop-off/pick-up is congested with the release of AMS, FAA and the bus hub. Please be conscientious of the many students (elementary through high school age students) crossing the street and the high volume of cars. Students and adults must use the crosswalks staffed with crossing guards. In order to keep everyone safe patience is key. Thank you for your help!
