The school year is off to a terrific start, and I thank you all for your support of the students, faculty and program. The calendar is filling up quickly, and I encourage you to mark the dates listed:
School Pictures: The big day for all student pictures will be Monday, August 31st.
We are doing it differently this year, and it is important that every student in Grades 9 - 11 has his/her picture taken on Monday, the 31st, for it is this picture that will appear in the yearbook. The schedule for the pictures will be set by the AMHS Yearbook adviser and staff.
Senior Parent College Awareness Night: Seniors and their parents are invited to Senior Parent Night on Thursday, September 3rd, at 5:30 in the Lecture Hall. At the meeting, Ms. Ware and Ms. Taylor will review the critical steps in the college application and scholarship process for the year. I listened to their presentation to the Seniors, and I urge all senior parents to attend this important meeting.
We will have our annual PIE Open House on Thursday, September 10th at 6:00 PM in the cafeteria. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the activities PIE has planned for the year, to meet your student's teachers, and to learn of the academic expectation for the school year. I look forward to seeing everyone there; please mark your calendars now
Other Coming Attractions
Early Dismissal for faculty professional development will be Wednesday, September 23rd, and students will be dismissed at 1:15 pm.
Homecoming: Spirit Week, Pep Rally, Football Game and Homecoming will take place September 14-18, and it is always a wonderful week at Magnet.
