    The mission of the Avon Middle School South Library program is to encourage the quest for knowledge and promote the joy of reading by providing access to a variety of materials that meet both the educational curriculum and recreational reading needs of the middle school student. We support the school mission statement in all that we do.

    AMS South - A place you learn. A place you grow. A place you belong.

    Learn

    Student-centered lessons are relevant, engaging, and challenging which enables students to take ownership of their learning.

    Together we are committed to building a curriculum that is focused on providing authentic learning experiences through project-based learning.

    Lessons challenge students to develop their 21st Century Technology skills. 

    Grow

    Students become critical thinkers as they learn to make connections between prior knowledge and current concepts to prepare for future challenges.

    Teachers develop honest, supportive relationships with their students.

    Students build collaborative relationships with their peers. 

    Belong

    Students are aware of and confident about the expectations, which are both clear and consistent throughout the school.

    Students have a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities.

    A supportive environment encourages students to pursue their ambitions. 

    AMS Library is an open access center. Students may stop in for quick visits before school, during passing periods or after school. They  also come with their teachers for scheduled book check out or lessons. Students will need to sign in and out when using the library and have their id to speed up the check out process. Passes are required during all academic periods.

     Hidden Gems from the Morning NewsGems

    1.  "Gone" By Michaael Grant

      “Gone” by Michael Grant takes place in a small

      town on the coast of California. Everyone over the age of fourteen suddenly disappears, setting up a battle between the remaining town residents and the students from a local private school, as well as those who have “the Power” and are able to perform supernatural feats against those who do not. This intense, marvelously plotted, paced, and characterized story has a great mix of action  and  thoughtfulness, centered around good and evil, courage and cowardice, makes this a book that will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless. 
      Read “Gone” to see what happens to these kids.

     

     Students have been using the library for class centers, online research, projects, tests, special activities, personal reading selection and relaxation, at the puzzle and checkers stations. Other  creative coloring  and game stations will be added this month. Students may use these stations during lunch, before school or with teacher permission when working in the library.

  • Do You Have Overdue Books? 

    This year we have begun sending home e-mails to all families automatically. You will see what materials you  owe and to which school. If the fine is for another school, please contact them directly if you feel that your student has either paid for or returned the item. Language arts teachers also recieve an overdue message to the classroom each week and will be having conversations with the students. Feel free to contact Mrs. Winningham with any questions or concerns.
