What's Happening Now.....




AMS Drama Club and AMS Tech Club  are working on our 5th drama production to be presented on April 11 & 12 at 6:30 PM at the Amherst Middle School Auditorium. Here is a short bio and movie trailer highlighting the history of AMS Drama CLub.



An Amherst Middle School Student Production

Show times:

April 11th 6:30 p.m.

April 12th  6:30 p.m.


April 11th and April 12th, Amherst Middle School Drama will present its production of Cinderella. Students have put a tremendous amount of time and effort into making this production an enchanted experience for the audience.


Two separate casts of students will give a total of 5 performances of Cinderella on April 11th and April 12th.  The students have been hard at work since the beginning of the school year, attending workshops designed to teach acting, character analysis, and stage presence.


After reading several versions of the popular fairytale, four of our seventh grade students worked tirelessly to adapt Cinderella for AMS Drama Club. 


AMS teacher, Noel DePalma is coaching and directing the students, teaching them the art of creating characters through studying a script and analyzing character traits.


Our students have learned a tremendous amount, and are eager to share their unique version of Cinderella  with the community.  Please join us for a performance, and enjoy the magical world that our AMS students have created!

Teacher Rewards Program for Internet Safety


Internet Safety (I.S.) in an important part of educating and prepare our students to become responsible adults. As teachers, we often teach I.S. when there’s extra time, but forget that these concepts can be intergraded in our core instruction and many concepts can support SOL based instruction lessons directly. Because of this, I would like to introduce the Teacher Reward Program (T.R.P.) for Internet Safety.   For those who choose to participate in the T.R.P. by submitting a completed I.S. rubric online, you will be eligible for a quarterly drawing for an  Apple iTunes Gift Card with a value of at least $10.00 per nine weeks of submission. *( See details below)

  • ·         Each 9 weeks a drawing will take place from all four of my schools that have completed teacher completed I.S. Rubrics within that specific nine-weeks, and have emailed me a copy.
  • ·         Each teacher can submit one(1) I.S. lesson rubric per nine-weeks, for a total of four(4) per school year. (With each quarterly submission, chances of your rubric (s) being selected increase!)
  • ·         The email date is how I determine the 9-weeks submitted.
  • ·         I will allow one week from the end of each 9-weeks to submit your rubric for that particular 9-weeks. (1st nine weeks last day to submit is Friday 10/19/2012)
  • ·         2nd nine-weeks I.S rubric submission will begin on October 22, 2012 and end on December 19, 2012. (2nd nine weeks last day to submit is Friday 1/11/2013)
  • ·         3rd nine-weeks I.S rubric submission will begin on January 3, 2013 and end on March 15, 2013. (3rd  nine weeks last day to submit is Friday 3/29/2013) 
  • ·         4th nine-weeks I.S rubric submission will begin on March 18, 2013 and end on May 31, 2013. (4th nine weeks last day to submit is Friday 5/31/2013)
  • ·         You may submit one I.S. lesson per nine-weeks, but it must be from a different Internet Safety Concept…which include:
    • o   Personal Safety
    • o   Cyberbullying
    • o   Copyright
    • o   Source Evaluation
  • ·         One teacher rubric from all four schools combined will be selected per nine-weeks in a random drawing.
  • ·         Selected winning teacher will be asked to submit a picture and short I.S. lesson description that will be posted on my website at  http://technoman222.pbworks.com
  • ·         Participation in this Teacher Rewards Program for Internet Safety is by choice and not required. If you wish not to have your rubric in the program, just say so in your email.  At this time, only online submission will be selected…hard copied rubrics will not be considered at this point.
  • ·         Email me any questions you may have concerning T.R.P.
  • ·         Note: This T.R.P. does not change the requirements of the middle school framework for Internet Safety that is attached. Its’ purpose is to encourage teachers to go beyond the minimal standards of the framework and  to broaden the instructional bases of different internet safety concepts for their individual classes.


This Teacher Rewards Program for Internet Safety is one way to say “Thank You” for your time and effort in development of proper internet safety practices in our students and in helping them to become responsible adults.
