November & December 2023


On November 16th, faculty and staff were treated to a lunch during their in-service work day. They enjoyed a catered lunch by PTO from Tacos Fuego as well as a variety of desserts and drinks graciously donated by the Mendoza family.


A shout out to Melissa Rodgers and the 8th grade volleyball players and their families for providing treat bars for the faculty and staff in November and December!

Thank you to Tracy Lambert-Jack for heading up the AMS canned food drive! It was tremendously successful due to your planning and efforts. Congratulations to the 7th grade for brining in the most canned food items!


We are so grateful to Palio’s Pizza and Past for participating in an AMS SPIRIT NIGHT this month! This beloved local business donated a percentage of its sales to AMS PTO. Thank you to everyone that made the effort to support these local businesses and our school!


PTO representatives and members wrapped Christmas gifts for faculty and staff the week of December 11 - 15th. Thank you to all of your that donated wrapping supplies and gave your time to this event!


On Monday, December 18th, faculty and staff enjoyed a PTO sponsored Christmas Cookie Bar, complete with take-home boxes full of delicious goodies baked and provided by AMS parents. This always proves this be a hit!


It was a privilege to partner with AMS administration to provide faculty and staff with a holiday party to remember at Joe T. Garcias on Tuesday, December 19th. PTO purchased an ornament and Starbucks gift card for each faculty and staff member. PTO also purchased nine poinsettias for use as centerpieces and as prizes. A huge THANK YOU to all of you that coordinated and donated items for gift baskets to be prizes at the party. Everyone was blown away by your generosity!


Our next faculty and staff lunch is Monday, January 22. Be on the look out for a sign-up genius to help with this endeavor. You get Remind notices from the school, so why not get Remind notices about events and meetings from AMS PTO too? Use code @b8d364 on your Remind app to be added our group.
