AMS students recently showed their knowledge of the preamble. Last week during Constitution Day, students were encouraged to memorize the preamble. If they could recite it to teacher Ms. Hubbard, they were rewarded with a popsicle.
A successful ELAC
We're happy and encouraged by the number of parents who attended our recent ELAC meeting. Together, we'll be helping to support our English Language Learners. Go, Eagles.
Teacher Frank Zrinski Jr. recently introduced his 7th-grade classes to life science microscope observations and drawings. His enthusiastic students observed colored threads, Ranunculus stems, onion root tips, mixed species of protozoa, and spider spinnerets. The goal of the lesson was to look at things under 40x, 100x and 400x and "see how powerful the light microscopes really are to check out some of the organelles and cells that Robert Hooke and Anton van Leeuwenhoek perhaps saw in the 17th century," Mr. Zrinki said.

AMS School Accountability Report Card
Every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC), by February 1 of each year. The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
