School Announcements
Welcome to North Augusta Middle School!
Welcome to North Augusta Middle School! I hope this year will be both challenging and rewarding for your middle school student. As our faculty and staff works diligently to prepare your student for high school, we ask that you assist us by having your student at school on time each day, providing a place for them to complete homework and assignments, and supporting them during this time. We hope that our students grow both academically and socially, and we offer a wide variety of activities and clubs in which they can participate. We encourage students to get involved in a club if possible, and to always remember that their academic success should be their top priority at school. Please contact us if we can be of assistance to you or your students. I look forward to another successful year at NAMS, where we Achieve Excellence Together!

Parent Survey
Aiken County Public School District would like to ask parents to take part in a Parent Survey as part of its upcoming AdvandED accreditation process.  Outside experts will visit our district in November to examine our current process for continuous improvement.  Part of this process is gathering feedback from our parents.  To gather this feedback, we would like for you to participate in an online survey.  Our goal is to have as many parents as possible to take this survey so that we can gather reliable data on our system.  Students who return the parent signature page to their teacher will receive a homework pass.  Please be assured that your responses to this survey will be anonymous.  Your honest opinion is appreciated.  Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.  The survey link can be found on the school district's home page at

The NAMS Show Choir is an audition only group for 8th graders. The auditions for this class will be held Wednesday, April 30th beginning at 3:30 PM.  The auditions are open to any current 7th grader that is interested.  Please stop by Ms. Surles' room or the office to pick up an audition packet.  A completed packet must be turned into Ms. Surles before auditioning.  See Ms. Surles with any questions.
