Hello from the AMS Counseling Office,
This semester we are gearing up for a variety of student groups at AMS. I am currently running a Military Support Group and a Peer Mentoring Group. AMS military students have the opportunity to get together throughout the year, to do fun activities, allowing them to share with each other and enjoy the community of other military students in our building.
We have also started a new group at AMS. The purpose of this group is to allow students to learn leadership skills and friendship support as they mentor new students at AMS. We want to make the transition to AMS as smooth as possible, as moving can be difficult for students. Peer mentors are student leaders as they help welcome the new AMS faces and make people feel a part of our AMS family.
There will be more groups starting second semester, including an academic support group and a grief support group. Feel free to contact me with questions about any of these options.
I am also available for individual student support, parent meetings and communication with teams, and academic guidance.
Lastly, our AMS teachers have started the CREW activities with their students. CREW stands for “Creating Relationships Every Week”, which is what we always strive to do at AMS. Our CREW theme this year is “Be the One”. We want students to “Be the One” to make a difference in someone’s life, in the culture of our school, and in their community. We also want students to “Be the One” to dream, to hope, and to find success for their futures. This year, we hope to share with students and each other, ways to “Be The One”.
We are off to a great start this school year!
