Students, parents/guardians, and teachers at AMS will celebrate International Walk and Roll to School Day next Wednesday, October 10th. This is a great opportunity to celebrate our health, the environment, and our school spirit. We’re hoping every student can participate by either walking, biking/boarding, or carpooling to school.
