  • Dear Parents,


    We are excited to share a new opportunity with you here at Ayden Middle School!  This year we are beginning a new program just for our parents and guardians called AMS Parents University.  Parents will have the opportunity to earn credits through volunteering, attending events and participating in various school activities -- and when enough credits are earned, parents can earn an AMS Parent’s University Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s or even a doctorate degree!


    We hope you will join us!  We look forward to have our graduates receive their degree at the End of the Year Awards Day.  


    Thank you!
