Thank you to our AMS Community for their generous support of our Veteran's Walk-A-Thon. To date, we have raised $2,576.58 and will continue to accept donations through Friday, October 28. Check out some of our pictures below and on facebook!
We were fortunate to be able to hold our Walk-A-Thon despite the threat of inclement weather...but we did hold off bringing the Service Flags outside because we wanted to keep them in good condition! Check out the photo of the flags with some of our students:
The color and flag assignments for each grade are:
5th Air force Flag & American Flag- Red
6th Army Flag & Coast Guard Flag-Blue
7th Marine Corps Flag & American Flag- White
8th Navy Flag & POW Flag- Black
Many of our veterans struggle to even meet their own basic needs. It is our mission to bring awareness to this issue, and we also want to raise as much money as possible for our local veterans in Manchester, NH. Last year we raised $2,095.95 and this year our goal is to raise $2500.
If any of our students, friends, or families would like to donate to this worthy cause, please send cash or make a check payable to the Amherst Middle School. Your child can bring their donation and turn it in at their lunch or to the office.
Please help us in any possible way to reach our goal!
