Thank you for visiting the Archbold Middle School website! I hope you find this resource helpful. AMS is a special place for students to learn and grow. We have a strong COMMUNITY of students and staff for the 2016-2017 school year! It is inspiring to visit the classrooms and be involved in the challenging and motivating lessons that our students are engaged in every day. No matter the specific role a TEAM member plays; from cook, to teacher, to custodian, all are committed to providing every student with an extremely positive school experience.
- Matt Shields, AMS Principal

You are invited to share in this celebration of books and reading!
Our AMS Media Center receives 50% of our total sales in book profit.
Therefore, not only does the Book Fair encourage reading among our students, it also provides our AMS Media Center with many new books and library resources.
Our book fair provides a wide variety of books specifically selected to appeal to middle school interests.
Students will discover books that are entertaining, inspirational, and a resource for dealing with emerging emotions. In addition, our fair will have bestsellers that adults will find interesting and useful.
Special Family Night Events will be held on:
Tuesday, March 7 … 3 pm – 6 pm
Thursday, March 9 … 3 pm – 6 pm
For each book purchased during the Family Night Events, you will win a spin on our "AMS Wheel of Fortune" for prizes.
Parent volunteers needed.

As styles change, sometime the wording on our dress code needs to be updated to keep pace. Currently, the most common dress code question relates to females wearing "tights" or "leggings" with a long skirt or sweater. We do not have guidelines relating to this specifically in our current handbook, which has caused some confusion. Therefore we are going to update our dress policy as follows:
Leggings and tights may be worn under a skirt or long shirt/sweater. The long shirt/ sweater must be longer than one’s finger tips when one’s arms are at their side.
Leggings and tights must not be see-through in any way.
Skirts must be no shorter than 3 inches above the knee.
Games, musical devices , and cell phones should not be brought to school. School personnel may confiscate these items. Other electronic devices that serve an academic purpose may be used during the school day if specified by the Principal.
It is recommended that students bring a lock for their locker to secure valuable items when not in use. A copy of the combination must be left with the office.
Lunch prices will be $2.70 for regular lunch and $3.00 for basket meals for students for the 2015-16 school year. Breakfast prices will be $1.50. Extra milk will be sold for $.50. For student balances, contact Sarah Nafziger via email. (email@example.com)
Please use the north side "drop off" or "pick up" zone on the north side of the building before and after school. This will help to enhance a steady flow of traffic for middle school parents and staff.
