Greetings AMS students and families,
My name is Mrs. Fetters, and I am one of the school counselors here at Andover Middle School. As we embark on a new way of education with the implementation of USD 385 Continuous Learning, please know that we are still here to support you 100% during this time. Although the Continous Learning process is new to all of us, please rest assured that teaching, loving and encouraging you and your students are actions that are absolutely not new to us.
I also want to share that I am not only speaking to you as a school counselor but as a parent of three lovely children who also attend Andover Public Schools. I have two daughters in middle school and one son at Cottonwood. I can not share with you how confident I am in our district’s process and the hard work that has already been completed by the District’s Continuous Learning Task Force. We are all in this together! We acknowledge that the process may not be perfect, but it will be perfect for us.
Above all, please just take a deep breath and take care of yourself and your families. We want our families to be healthy and safe. Now, more than ever, practice self-care. Get outdoors to play when the weather is nice and open up those windows for fresh air. Get your body moving every day. Stay connected to others and be intentional about naming your blessings.
Mrs. Amber Fetters
