Hunterdon County: Then & Now
2014 marks the 300th birthday of Hunterdon County.  In honor of our beautiful county's birthday, the students took a trip to the Red Mill in Clinton, NJ.  Students traveled back in time as they experienced a one-room school house, a log cabin, and life in the 1800s.  After experiencing life in the 1800s, the students had the opportunity to gain an artistic perspective of the Red Mill as they traveled across the river to the Hunterdon Art Museum.  Students sketched the Red Mill, toured the Art Museum, visited the Darren McManus exhibit which connects Art and Math/Science and participated in a hands on art workshop.                                   
Sound System for AMS Music Program
 Performance is key to a successful Performing Arts experience at AMS.  An optimum system is necessary for the students to clearly and audibly present their performance.  This grant provided a new sound system to be used by all the Instrumental, Choral and General Music classes.
