Last Day of School for Students: The last day of school is Friday, June 1st.
Summer Website for Students and Parents: Please go on the following website to find summer activities and resources to use with your children over the summer. Remember, we want students to remain engaged in reading, math and all learning over the summer.
Update on New Addison Mizner School: The final decision has been made to rebuild on the same location. We will be at our current location for the FY 19 and FY 20 school years. At that point, we will move to a ‘temporary location” next to Don Estridge Middle School. When we return, we will become a K-8 school. There will only be no more than 100 students in 6th, 100 in 7th and 100 and 8th, adding one grade level per year. Current AMES students will be the first to be given the opportunity to apply for this choice middle school. Only if there were any remaining spots after that, would it open up to other students. Please click on the link below to read an article about the positives of a K-8 school.
Animal Rescue Donations: We are collecting donations for an animal rescue league. Please donate: Towels, dog food (dry or cans), bottled water, toys, treats, leashes/collars, and pet item is welcome (No pillows please). Bring to the front office. Thank you for your help.
Marquee Damaged: Many of you have inquired why we don’t have anything on the front Marquee. It was severely damaged during Hurricane Irma, which goes through FEMA for funding. We are awaiting the go ahead for the district to repair it. Once it is fixed, we will update it with information.
Campus Safety: The safety of our school and children is always our first priority. Please be assured the district is providing extra police presence and is already in the process of implementing school safety improvements throughout the district. We now have a police officer on campus throughout the day. The district is working hand in hand with local police agencies and school police to not only update safety protocols as needed, but also provide daily security at all schools.
