The Annapolis Middle School Parent Teacher Student Association advocates for our school and helps to provide our students and teachers with the resources and enrichment activities they need to excel. We encourage you to join us as we work to make Annapolis Middle the best school it can be!
This week, August 12 to 18, is Maryland Shop Tax-Free Week. This means that purchases of qualifying apparel and footwear, $100 or less, per item, are exempt from the state sales tax. This year, the first $40 of a backpack purchase is also tax-free. Accessories and other school supplies are not included.
For information about eligible items, visit the website of the Comptroller of Maryland.
We hope our AMS families have been clipping and saving Box Tops this summer. It’s not too late to get started. Every box top saved brings in 10 cents for our PTSA programs, such as school dances, honor roll parties, teacher appreciation activities and more. Once school begins, you can have your student drop off the Box Tops in the Main Office. Or you can bring them to our first PTSA meeting. Thank you and happy clipping!
Back to school shopping this week? Consider picking up a few items for the Dragon Den. The Dragon Den is our school supply shop in the AMS cafeteria. Students love it because they can use their hard-earned Dragon Dollars to buy small rewards and school supplies. The Dragon Den welcomes contributions of the following NEW items:
- Mechanical Pencils (size 0.7)
- Lead refills (size 0.7)
- Fun erasers
- Gel pens
- Key chains
- Pencil pouches
- Lunch boxes
- 3-inch binders
- Other fun items you think your kids would enjoy
