Become a volunteer writer coach!

WriterCoach Connection works with every 8th grader at AMS each winter. For eight weeks trained coaches meet one-on-one with students, during English class, to give feedback on their writing. Now is the time to learn about this volunteer activity and decide if it’s a good fit for you. Sign up for a one-hour orientation at or get in touch with the AMS site coordinators, Mary Flaherty & Nick Keefe: The program is open to all adults, not just AMS parents, so share this with friends and relatives. Thanks for considering it!

Improvements to the Physical Site of AMS

There are a couple of important and beneficial items in the works with regard to the physical site of Albany Middle School, and we want to make sure AMS families are aware of these changes. First, we are in the process of getting additional bike racks both for students and adults. We expect those to be installed in the next couple of weeks. Additionally, to alleviate the overcrowding on the AMS campus, a middle school annex is being built on San Gabriel. This campus will include twelve classrooms, a drama/performing arts/choir facility, and a new computer lab. The plans are at DSA, and we are waiting for approval before the work begins. We will keep you updated as we get new information!
