Principal's Message

Mr. Mark Smiley

Dear Amity Elementary Families:

I am beyond excited to be joining the Amity Elementary team!  I look forward to meeting and working with each student and family of the Amity community to “achieve excellence together.”  I hope that your summer experiences have been fulfilling, and left you re-energized and renewed for the start of the year.  Another school year awaits with high expectations for the growth and achievement of our students; academically, socially and emotionally.   It is with much pride that I join such a wonderful group of teachers, aides, nurses, secretaries, custodians, and lunchroom staff focused on providing an outstanding educational experience for every student who enters our doors each morning.

We welcome two new teachers to our faculty this year.  Ms. Taylor Brown will teach music at Holmes and Amity.  Ms. Brown joins us from the Bethel-Tate Local School District, where she taught elementary music for three years.  Mrs. Michelle Ellis will serve the students of Holmes and Amity in the role of counselor.  Mrs. Ellis has a wealth of experience as an elementary school counselor, spending the previous 7 years as the counselor of Springmyer Elementary in the Oak Hills Local School District.

Please mark these important dates on your calendar:
