Welcome to another fabulous school year at Andover Elementary Middle School! It continues to be a privilege to work with the stellar staff and students of this community. The School Administrative Unit (SAU 46) is under the leadership of Superintendent Mark MacLean. We look forward to the opportunities for further collaboration with our Merrimack Valley School District colleagues. In my role as Assistant Principal and Director of Special Education, I am able to experience the best of both worlds. I work within the school building, allowing for those daily connections with our principal Ms. Slayton, our teachers and students along with our amazing support staff. I also visit with students at Merrimack Valley High School and out of district placements, ensuring that they continue to feel a sense of belonging in the Andover School District.
"Tradition" is a trademark here at AEMS given the annual events that we all look forward to: Open House; Bike to School Day; Walk to School Day; Concerts; Veterans Day Ceremony; Grandparents Thanksgiving; Parent Breakfast; Math Night; Poetry Night and our Andover Players Musical Production, just to name a few. There are also sporting events throughout the school year that highlight the talents of all of our student athletes. The ongoing support of our many volunteers, community members and the Andover School Board is always appreciated! "It takes a village!"
