Riverside District 96 - Ames School added 20 new photos.

Thank you to the Ames PTA for our Welcome Back to School Assembly! Matt Wilhelm, a BMX biker, put on an amazing show for our students. You may remember Matt from "America's Got Talent", where he made it to the semi-finals. Matt also talked to the students about making good choices, helping others, and being positive. What a great kick-off to the 2016-2017 school year at Ames!

Happy First Day of School Ames Families!!!

This is just a friendly reminder that our families are welcome to join us this afternoon at 2:00pm for our Ames PTA Welcome Back to School Assembly. Our assembly will take place outside at the back of the school. Please do not enter through the main office. You can just meet us on the black top at the back of the school.

Also, please join us for our first PTA meeting of the year!

It will take place this Friday, August 26 at 8:20 am on the blacktop behind Ames School. In case of rain, the meeting will be held in the Art Room.

Coffee and refreshments will be served!

If you have neighbors who are new to Ames, please invite them to attend as they may not have signed up for PTA notifications yet.

We are looking forward to a PHENOMENAL 2016-2017 School Year with you!!!

Partners in your child's education.
