CONGRATULATIONS TO AEFI’S 2021 STROKE OF GENIUS AWARD WINNERS!!! Members of the AMS special education staff created a weekly program for their students to bake cookies and muffins that they would then sell to staff. Cathy Mamakos, Allison Pearl, Kat Watson, and Shannon Kennedy were presented a plaque for this early Life Skills program that has generated a culture of acceptance, appreciation, and fun for their students and school community. Karen Provost, Shari Cote, and Erin Burdick also were staff who developed the program.
Johanna Kimball accepted a plaque for her efforts to coordinate staff and students for the Reverse Holiday Parade that replaced the cancelled 2020 Holiday Parade. Band and choruses performed in the AHS parking lot while families drove by in their cars, entertained by decorations, costumed characters, Zach Field drummers, and, of course, Mr. and Mrs. Santa. Adam Denio, AMS Assistant Principal and Principal Jared Hass accepted the replica weathervane trophy that will be displayed this year in the AMS Lobby.
