     I am thrilled to be a part of the Blue Jacket Family and serve such a wonderful school and community! I feel incredibly fortunate to learn with, lead, and serve all of you, as principal of Aynor Middle School. I look forward to getting to know and work with you, and the students of AMS, whether it is remotely in a virtual setting, or through the hybrid model, to start the 2020-2021 school year. It will be through our united dedication, teamwork, and collaboration, that students reach their accomplishments. As a family, we will ensure that your children meet the profile of a College and Career Ready graduate. Students will be instilled with world-class knowledge and skills, but also develop life skills, and character to excel in their careers ahead.

    At Aynor Middle School, students have a nearly endless amount of programs that require them to think creatively, reflect, and problem-solve. These programs include our academics and an offering of various honors and accelerated programs, as well as a fine arts program including band, chorus, orchestra, and art, that continues to receive numerous recognitions and grants. AMS also offers STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) curriculum which includes a medical detectives and design and modeling course. Part of the scheduled time during the day includes, Jacket Time, with a focus on social emotional learning, and character and team building throughout the day. Our extracurriculars include numerous sports, clubs, and activities, including the following: archery, baby blue notes, baseball, basketball, book club, cheerleading, FCA, fishing, football, geography, Math Counts, National Junior Honor Society, Real Men’s Club, Relay for Life, softball, student council, Sunshine Club, Technology and robotics, Tri-M Music Honor Society, and more!    

    Welcome to Aynor Middle, where together, we will thrive in the hive!
