A LOOK AT CAMPUS

IMPROVEMENTS Several renovation projects on the ASMS campus have been completed during the 2014-2015 school year. As part of the school’s campus-wide health initiative, the old bowling alley was converted into a new student fitness facility. In the Bedsole Building, the TV Room received new furniture. The Gym received new lighting, paint, and logos. The Gym floor will be refinished this summer. The Game Room has a new pool table and two new video games. The Library has new computers thanks to the Parent Association. The Girls’ Dorm bathrooms were completely renovated during the summer. The Girl’s Dorm stairwell received new flooring and paint. The Boy’s Dorm lobbies were repainted and kitchenette countertops refinished. Both dorms received new furnishings in the lobbies. The Boys’ Dorm bathrooms will be fully renovated this summer. Several Humanities classrooms have been painted, received new carpet, and teachers received new classroom desks. The Choir Room also received new tile flooring. Several Administration offices have been updated with new carpeting and paint. New classroom space and a faculty and staff lounge has been renovated in the Administration Building. The Boardroom received new paint and flooring. A new campus mass-notification/fire alarm system has been installed. “I love the new renovations,” says ASMS junior Emily Shields. “The girl’s bathrooms especially, because they are so spacious and it’s like being in a hotel. The new furniture also makes the school look so nice. Thanks for everything!”
