SO close to the fundraising goal!

The preliminary numbers are in for the Meadow Farms sale, and there is still time to help the PTA reach the budgeted goal! Sales can be completed online and still benefit the Amherst PTA! The following link supports ALL elementary and middle schools (despite saying "Amherst Middle School): http://shop.meadowfarms.com/index.asp?PID=1032351

Please share on your social media accounts and with friends and family to earn the money needed for amazing curriculum enrichment and staff grant opportunities!

November 14th- School Resource Officer Knox & General Meeting

Book your calendars for a night you don't want to miss! Officer Knox is the School Resource Officer for Clark-Wilkins and Amherst Middle School. He has a wealth of knowledge about keeping our kids safe from many types of harm and is a great resource for all parents. He speaks at PTA presentations each year, and the feedback is always "I wish I brought my friend!" - "My husband should have heard this, too!" - "Will he come back again to speak?" We invite parents of ALL aged children to attend as his presentations have proven timely for all. 

  • Wednesday, November 14th
  • Wilkins Library 6-8pm
