AMS is turning 60!

Fabulous AMS families,

Can you believe your beloved Aliamanu Middle School is turning 60 years young in 2018?!?? Such a momentous birthday must be celebrated in style. Your PTSO and the AMS staff have been working together to come up with an awesome PAR-TAY to celebrate! However, we need everyone’s help to make this a birthday to remember.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 1st for a day full of birthday fun. Administration is still working out the schedule for that day, however look forward to a school wide Walk-a-Thon, a carnival, and special rockn’ Hillside Assembly.

Link for volunteer and donations sign-ups.

The carnival booths will be things such as ring toss, pizza sales, bounce house, bingo, nacho sales, cup stacking, balloon races, basketball shoot out, etc. Majority of the carnival games will be FREE however some booths such as the joust/obstacle course bouncers and food booths will require script purchases. Kona Ice truck will also be on campus during the carnival for cash only purchases.

*Cafeteria lunch will be served as scheduled.
Script purchases can be purchased during recess starting on Monday, January 29th thru Thursday, February 1st, please see Mrs. Dilks in D6 to purchase your scripts during this time.
