There will be an informational meeting on June 8th for any eighth graders interested in playing sports at Edward Little High School.

We are planning on an end of year grade 8 celebration dance on June 10, from 6pm-9pm for all 8th graders. There will be no cost for this event. Students from other grades or other schools are not allowed. AMS 8th Grade Dance Flyer


Planning is underway for an 8th grade end of year ceremony where students will receive their promotion certification. The event is being planned for Wednesday, June 15th from 12:15PM-1:15PM in the AMS Gym. It will be livestreamed and recorded for anyone who can not attend in person. Please note the new start time of 12:15PM so we are not conflicting with events at the elementary schools. If we reach capacity in our gymnasium, overflow seating will be in the cafeteria and music room, where the event will be livestreamed.


If you know that your child will be absent or tardy, please contact the school either by phone (333-6655) or email (AMSattendance@auburnschl.edu). In your message, please include your child’s name and the reason for the absence/tardiness. If a parent/guardian has not called or emailed to report the absence, the student will be marked unexcused and an automated call will be dispatched from the school to the person listed as the first emergency contact.


OUT Maine is an organization that focuses on listening and responding to the needs of Maine LGBTQ+ youth. Their website contains lots of valuable information for students and families.


We will be having a schoolwide cookout for all students on June 13th. Students can have grilled burgers, hotdogs, salad, etc. This is free for all students..

Auburn Middle School Parent-Student Drop Off and Pick Up MAP

Drop Off Instructions:

Drive up Falcon Drive toward the school. Take a left as you face the school. Travel along the left side of the building. In the back, drop off your student in the designated area. Follow the road up and loop around. Drive back down the same road to Falcon Drive.

Pick Up Instructions:

Parents should enter the campus during their assigned pick-up time, bear left, and the first car in the line will be stopped just past the turn around at the back of the school. We will have staff there to facilitate this. Students from each wave will leave the back entrance and socially distance themselves along the turnaround loop. Parents will follow the line of cars around the loop and stop to pick up their child. Parents should carefully proceed around the loop and exit back down the way they entered.

***********************************************************************************************************

Based on consultation with the city, the safest place for parent pick up is in the rear of the building. To shorten wait times, we will have 4 waves of student dismissals.

Every Parent/Guardian is assigned a pick-up wave for their child.

Wave 1: 2:00 Student Last names: A-D

Wave 2: 2:05 Student Last names: E-K

Wave 3: 2:10 Student Last names: L-R

Wave 4: 2:15 Student Last names: S-Z

***********************************************************************************************************

  • Student WALKERS - Walkers will be dismissed after busses at approximately 2:15pm. In the mornings, walkers should arrive between 7:00-7:20am.

FAQ(s):

  1. What if I need to pick up my student early?

A: Please arrange pick up prior to 1:30PM to ensure that you will not be caught by busses and traffic.

  1. What if I am running late?

A: Please join the next wave. If it becomes a scheduling conflict, please call the office and we will adjust the wave assignment to ensure that your child is not waiting for extra time.

  1. What if it is raining or other inclimate weather?

A: Please have students dress for the weather, but in extreme conditions, we will have students wait in the gymnasium and be dismissed individually (this may cause a slower release. We ask for your patience and understanding.
