  • Clothing Drive for Brazos County Children

    AMS Alumna Kaley Shelton, a first-grade teacher at College Hills Elementary School in College Station, is asking for our help in collecting gently-used outerwear for the students at her school.  Kaley is requesting elementary-aged (5-10 years) children’s rain jackets, umbrellas, rain boots, and cold-weather outerwear. Older children may be able to use small adult sized-clothing.
     
    Many children attending the school are economically disadvantaged, so all donations will go to children in need.  The drive begins this week and will conclude on Friday, November 22.  Items may be dropped off at the Sunset Trail or Great Northern campus office.  Thank you!
  • Annual Fund

    Our Annual Fund drive continues to pick up steam. We are excited to give you the stats as they currently stand:
     
    Total pledged: $53,779.00
    Parent Participation 16%, Staff & Board Participation 100%
     
    Please forward this information to your extended family members so they can also share in the excitement that is the well-being of the school and show their support. Grandparents and other Friends of AMS play an important role in the life of the school, and this is a great way for them to participate. Also, don’t forget to check with your employer to see if they have a matching donation program – every little bit helps us reach our fundraising goal.

  • Children’s House Gift Giving Guide

    The leaves are falling and the cooler weather is hinting of the holiday season approaching.  During this time of the year, parents of children who attend Montessori schools find themselves researching engaging and enriching items for gifting during the holidays.  Searching for toys that support the child’s development can be an overwhelming exercise for parents. We would like to offer AMS families a few ideas to use when selecting items for children’s gifts.
