Looking for a reason to clear out Halloween leftovers come Nov. 1? Every year, Albany Middle School helps At the Crossroads (atthecrossroads.org), a San Francisco organization geared toward helping homeless youth, in its annual candy drive.
If you have excess candy you'd like to contribute, a bin labeled “At the Crossroads” will be in AMS's main office through 11/8. Bring by your extras — they'll go to good use. Click the link to learn more about At the Crossroads' candy drive, and thank you so much!

The AMS Physical Education department is hosting the 2nd Annual AMS Turkey Trot on Tuesday, 11/21/17. We are asking for parent volunteers to help set-up, monitor, and break down the race course. This is a great opportunity to help AMS P.E. and see our students participate in a great event. We can use help from 8:30am-12:30pm. 7th Grade will be trotting from 8:55-9:45 (2nd Period), 6th Grade will be from 9:50-10:40 (3rd Period), and 8th Grade will be from 11:40-12:30 (5th Period). You don't need to be available for the whole morning. If you can make it for just one or two races, we would be very grateful. Please email Mr. Peters at email@example.com if you are able to help out. Thank you so much!

Last year as a staff, we developed The Cobra Way: No Place for Hate (click the title to open the attachment), a document that was designed to make sure students know what hate speech is, that it is not acceptable, what the consequences are for using it, and what their role is in stopping it.
Ms. Brill and Mr. Haupert went into classrooms today to deliver this information to every AMS student and to give each student the document to sign. We hope that Mr. Haupert and Ms. Brill delivering this material will also communicate to students the seriousness of this topic.
We appreciate all the passion of our staff and parent communities in working conscientiously to counteract what is happening around hate speech and hate acts with alarming frequency in our world. We hope The Cobra Way is one more step in this direction.
