Kudos-A big Shout out to Dr. Duvall and our AFMS band students. The band earned 1st place in our class (AA) and best overall middle school band at the music festival at Busch Gardens. The kids were very excited and did a great job with performing, and they also represented the school very well. A big THANK YOU to Mr. Hill for traveling with these musicians. Super proud of these students!
Kudos to our awesome art students, Jhalia Lassiter, Isaac Jenkins, Chyanna Bailey, and Taylor Jacob who has been selected to represent AFMS at Artsplosure 2019 Student Art Exhibition! This Exhibition is part of Artsplosure 2019 annual Spring Arts festival that takes place in downtown Raleigh.

Student Lunches: We are requesting that parents refrain from bringing take-out (restaurant/fast food) for student lunches. Outside vendor food is not allowed in the cafeteria.
Carpool Reminders- Parents in the carpool line in the morning are not to switch lanes after dropping off students. We have had a few close calls, and these can all be avoided by this simple request.
Student Check-Out Reminder- please refrain from checking your child out of school or requesting transportation changes after 2:30 p.m. This is an extremely busy time for us in the main office, as we prepare for student dismissal.
