7th Grade Students have been invited to see Kaiser Permanente's live theatre production, Nightmare on Puberty Street- January 17th at AMS
Nightmare on Puberty St. is an age-appropriate, live theatrical performance about four young people on their journey through adolescence. As the characters wrestle with the question, “Am I normal?” they learn to cope with the changes affecting their bodies and minds. The frank and sometimes funny program shows students how to cope with many of the issues of puberty, including how to handle pressure to be sexually active, how to build self-esteem, how to avoid drugs and alcohol, and where to find help if faced with feelings of depression or thoughts of suicide. By the end of the performance, students understand everyone goes through changes during puberty, and there are resources to help them adjust to those changes.
AMS staff was asked to nominate students who have persevered through the semester and haven’t given up on their goals. The following students have demonstrated improved academics, attendance and/or behavior and work on being respectful, safe and responsible - the Eagle Way.
Nominating teachers: Mr. Brennan, Ms. Coppa Mrs. DeCew, Mr. DeWitt, Mr. Fritts, Ms. Greene, Ms. Garcia, Mr. Green, Ms. Helton, Mr. Holcomb, Mrs. Holcomb, Ms. Hubbard, Ms. Kelleher, Ms. Khan, Mr. Lemberger, Ms. Martinez, Ms. Morgan, Ms. Rachwal, Ms. Rich, Ms. Thomas, Ms. Tokos, Ms. Walker, Ms. Wallace
Uniforms at AMS
Antioch Middle School has been a uniform school for 8 years. It has helped tremendously with the school climate and the learning environment. The uniform is as follows:
Maroon Polo Shirt
Black or Tan Slacks (no sweatpants, leggings, jeans, or tights)
Solid outerwear in the following colors: Grey, Black, Maroon or Navy Blue (no logos or designs)
Students have been able to "borrow" clothes if they have not had the appropriate items. The borrowed clothes have not been returned. We are in need of these items back in order to continue to help our students. If you are able to donate clothes to our clothes closet, we would greatly appreciate it. The best solution is for students to attend school, dressed in their own uniforms! Thanks for your help!
AMS Students had a blast in their Basketball win over the Staff!!!
