  • AMS Students Host "Shark Tank"

    During warrior time, 6th grade students have been working on an enrichment activity where they get to become entrepreneurs and experience what it would be like to be on Shark Tank. They got to create their own product and present it in front of “sharks.” It was fun to create these innovative products and make deals with our 7th grade sharks.
