Kudos-Thank you to our Charger Parents who continue to support our staff and students with donations and treats. Because of your generosity, we were able to provide sweet/salty treats to our Honor Roll students (in November), as well as a “Charging Station” consisting of donuts and coffee/hot chocolate (in December) to our staff. Additionally, we have had several parents volunteering their time at multiple events. We would also like to send a BIG SHOUT OUT to Mrs. Boyd (parent), for regularly volunteering in the media center and creating fantastic bulletin boards along with a snow man display in our media center.
KUDOS-Reflections Arts Program-Two visual arts entries from AFMS students placed in the county-level judging! A HUGE congratulations to Audrey Grady (first place) and Anna Bossert (third place). Their wonderful artwork is on display in the cases near the media center. Way to go!!!
Parents of 7th graders- please be on the lookout for a letter your child is bringing home the week of January 7th. This letter explains a program that Wake County implements called Signs of Suicide. This program is part of the Mental Health curriculum and all 7th graders will be taught a lesson through this program in their Health classes. Please ask your child about the letter and reach out to Katie Lewis, our 7th grade counselor, if you have questions.
Chorus at AFMS-We will be offering Chorus to our students at the beginning of second semester. A form must be completed by the student and signed by the parent to switch an elective class. We are still accepting forms. Forms can be submitted to the main office. For more information, please see our website or contact the main office.
