Welcome to the A. Montoya PAWSS website.  Here you can find PAWSS event dates, a PAWSS calendar, links to parent resources, and PAWSS contact information.

The AMES PAWSS works closely with our Principal Luke Berglund and the administrative and education personnel to ensure that the needs of our students are continually met. Through our fundraisers, we fund things like field trip buses and we sponsor family events in order to enhance the curriculum and enrich the learning experience of the children. 

Are you missing events or school information?  Join our mailing list to receive every messenger call from our principal and stay informed about school events.
