Dear AMS 6th Grade Families,

While it isn’t even officially winter yet, we have started the planning process for 6th grade students to attend The Ecology School in Saco, Maine this spring. Your student’s teachers will be sending home a more detailed communication in the new year, but I wanted to share with you some important information so that you can plan accordingly.

Trip Dates:

May 8th to May 12th - Dustin/Robinson team and the Mosby/Miller team

May 15th to May 19th - Rogers/Estabrook team, Manor/Argeropoulos team, and the sixth graders from Mont Vernon Village School


The total cost of the trip, including the educational program, transportation, room and board, is $450.00 per student

Important Dates:

January 3, 2022 (Tuesday): Paperwork sent home with students from STEM teachers

January 18, 2022 (Wednesday): Parent Information Night, 6:30pm, AMS Cafeteria (Presentation is below!)

We are hoping to have all students participate in this valuable experience.

All inquiries will be kept confidential.

Thank you,
