Parents

Parents are a central component of the education of America's youth. According to the report entitled Equality of Educational Opportunity published in 1966, a student's home environment attributes to 90 percent of a child's education, while 10 percent is influenced by the quality of schooling.

At AMS, we value parental involvement in our school and in the lives of every student. There are many ways parents can get involved, from joining the Parent-Teachers for Education organization and/or the Armuchee/Glenwood Education Foundation to emailing a teacher to volunteer in the classroom. 

The Armuchee Middle School Local School Governance Team (LSGT) is made up of parents, business leaders, teachers, and the principal. According to the bylaws of the Floyd County charter, the purpose of the LSGT "is to bring communities and schools closer together in a spirit of cooperation to solve difficult education problems, improve academic achievement, provide support for teachers and administrators, and bring parents into the school-based decision-making process."

The Armuchee/Glenwood Education Foundation is made up of parents, faculty, staff, alumni, and community volunteers. The Foundation awards teacher grants to improve educational resources in the classroom, provides schools thousands of dollars for critical-need improvements, grants college scholarships, provides maintenance to the WalkPath that provides every member of our community the opportunity to exercise at their leisure, free of charge, and is the TribeFest and auction host. To join, please contact Jennifer Smith, AMS Secretary, at the school for a membership application.
