Ardsley Middle School
The PTA is proud to work with our administration to support and enhance the curriculum and experiences of our AMS students.
Visiting Author Series
Between 2012 - 2014, successful author Laura Dower came to AMS to lead a series of master classes with students that focused on inspiration, motivation, and the fine art of revision.
We were also pleased to have supported a workshop for our seventh grade students with Jeff Baron, a full-time screenwriter and playwright. The students were able to provide feedback on his first novel, I Represent Sean Rosen, by acting as a sounding board for the main character. This was an exciting opportunity to participate in the process of a book going from draft to publication!
AMS Wellness Fair
PTA volunteers were instrumental in coordinating the first AMS Wellness fair this past April! It was an exciting opportunity to support the school's vision for the "whole child". At the fair, students had an opportunity to participate in activities at various stations covering nutritional information, self-reflection, stress relief/relaxation, coping strategies, giving to others, safety & personal wellbeing, physical exercise, substance abuse awareness and even got to visit with Pet Therapy dogs! We expect to make it even better this year!
