Principal's Message

As a new year starts, excitement is in the air! Alton Memorial Junior High School is preparing to begin the Year of the Falcon. In prior years, we have had great success stories; but, this is the year that Falcons will truly soar high above everyone else. We challenge our students to excel in academics, sports, band, UIL, etc. Our expectation is for all students to excel in their classes and to master the STAAR exams. Students at Alton Memorial Jr. High need to be positive role models by participating in extracurricular activities throughout the year. Falcons will need to be well-disciplined and be ready to meet the academic challenge. Are you ready for the challenge! Go Falcons!

Red Ribbon Week activities for October 2017

Red Ribbon Week activities for October 2017

Red Ribbon Week recognition began after the kidnapping, torture and murder of DEA agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena in 1985. Camarena had been working undercover in Guadalajara, Mexico for over four years. His efforts led to a tip that resulted in the discovery of a multi million dollar narcotics manufacturing operation in Chihuahua, Mexico. It is in memory of him that we have  Red Ribbon Week.  Join us in spreading the message.
