This spring, middle school lunch groups will be offered in the Guidance Office. The groups are open to any interested students. They will be fun, informal opportunities for students to engage in positive social interaction in a smaller setting than the cafeteria. The groups will meet with me once a week for six weeks. If you would like your son/daughter to participate in a lunch group, please sign the form that was mailed home and return it to the Guidance Office by Tuesday, April 3. If you have any questions, please contact me at 375-2589 ext. 106 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CDC Visits AMHS
There will be a representative from the CDC (the Southwest Vermont Career Development Center in Bennington) in the Commons during lunch on March 30 to talk with any students who are interested in enrolling in technical education programs next year. The programs are intended for juniors and seniors, although some sophomores may be eligible.
Graduation Announcements/Invitations and Class Rings
Families of seniors interested in ordering graduation announcements/invitations and class rings can do so any time online at balfour.com .
SAT/ACT Testing and SAT PREP for Juniors
All juniors who plan to attend college should take either the SAT or the ACT in the spring of their junior year. Spring SAT Prep sessions will be offered periodically by the guidance office during the flex period. Please see the recent community email or contact the guidance office for more detailed information.
