Congratulations to AMS 7th Grader Kai Beltz on winning the AMS Geography Bee. Mr. Hartman, the AMS Individuals & Societies Department Chairperson, presided over the competition final on January 26 in the Media Center. Kai was followed up by runner-ups Mario Buchkov (8th Grade) and Regan Parker (6th Grade).
The Annapolis Middle PTSA would like to congratulate the talented AMS musicians who auditioned for Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ All-County Orchestra and All-County Band. The audition is a big step forward in a students’ development as a musician and we are proud of every AMS student who took this important step! Here are the students who were selected for the All-County ensembles:
All-County Orchestra (concert took place in December):
Amelia Schrecker (Viola)
All-County Band (concert on February 10, 7 PM):
Andrew Horning (Trombone)
Ryan McCandless (Flute)
Brandon Quintanilla-Nicolas (Bass Clarinet)
Audrey Walters (Flute)
Thank you to Mr. Erick Von Sas, AMS Director of Bands and Orchestras, for helping our students prepare!
Do you know a family member or friend who could volunteer as a guest speaker for students at Annapolis Middle School? AMS teachers are looking for members of the community who can help students see how their learning connects to the real world. If you or someone you know works in a field that could connect to student learning in any subject, teachers would like to make contact with you!
Thanks for helping our students!
