Thank you for visiting the Archbold Middle School website! I hope you find this resource helpful. AMS is a special place for students to learn and grow. We have a strong COMMUNITY of students and staff for the 2016-2017 school year! It is inspiring to visit the classrooms and be involved in the challenging and motivating lessons that our students are engaged in every day. No matter the specific role a TEAM member plays; from cook, to teacher, to custodian, all are committed to providing every student with an extremely positive school experience.
- Matt Shields, AMS Principal
Our Scholastic Book Fair is scheduled for the following dates and times:
We invite you to our school to share in this celebration of books and reading.
Our AMS Media Center receives 50% of our total sales in book profit. Therefore, not only does the Book Fair encourage reading among our students, it also provides our AMS Media Center with many new books and library resources.
Our book fair provides a wide variety of books specifically selected to appeal to middle school interests. Students will discover books that are entertaining, inspirational, and a resource for dealing withemerging emotions. In addition, our fair will have bestsellers that adults will find interesting and useful.
Special Family Events will be held on :
For each book purchased during the Family Night Events, you win a spin on our “AMS Wheel of Fortune” for prizes!!
Come browse and find books that can help your child stay connected with reading. If for some reason you are not able to attend the fair in person, we encourage you to discuss the book fair with your child to determine what books he or she may want to add to their wish list.
