FRIDAY FAMILY UPDATE

June 10, 2022



Good afternoon AMS Families!


This will be our last family update of the school year, and my last as principal of AMS. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the students of Auburn the last four years. Ben Wilson will be the new principal at AMS beginning July 1st.


There will be an end of year grade 8 celebration dance TONIGHT from 6pm-9pm for all 8th graders. Although this is a semi-formal dance, students are not required to dress up. The theme is “Ready, Set, Glow” where there will be lots of neon lights and bright colors. There will be no cost for this event. Students should be dropped off at the front of the building at 6pm and picked up promptly at 9pm out front. Any student who is absent or suspended from school today can not attend the dance. Students from other grades or other schools are not allowed under any circumstances.


AMS 8th graders will be having their “step up” day on Tuesday, June 14th. On this day, 8th graders will be traveling to Edward Little High School at 12PM to tour the building to familiarize them with their new school. Students will be dismissed via their usual means of transportation from ELHS at the end of the school day.


Our grade 8 promotion ceremony will take place on Wednesday, June 15th from 12:15PM-1:15PM in the AMS Gym. The event will be livestreamed and recorded for anyone who can not attend in person. If we reach capacity in our gymnasium, overflow seating will be in the cafeteria and music room, where the event will be livestreamed. Parking on campus is very limited. At the conclusion of the ceremony, 8th grade students are allowed to leave for the day with their families. The doors will open at 11:45AM.


NWEA scores, report cards, and team assignments will be mailed home to students who will be in 8th grade next year. Current 8th graders will receive their report card and NWEA scores in the mail.


Our lost and found if overflowing with jackets, sweatshirts, water bottles, footwear, etc. Please remind your student to check our lost and found before they leave for summer. On June 17th all remaining items will be donated to a local charity.


The last student day of this school year is on Thursday, June 16th. Students will be dismissed at 10:30am on this day.

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

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.
