    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.  

    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.

     

    IN PTSA NEWS: 

    This year the AFMS PTSA is having an event called Charger Games on Friday May 31st from 5pm-8pm. This will be a community and fundraising event that we plan to invite our Rising 6th Grade Families to as well as our current student family population. The event will have a variety of games, a dodgeball tournament, some vendors for shopping and food as well as a Silent Auction.

    The Charger Games Dodgeball tournament registration has been extended for another week. All signed permission slips MUST be in by Friday, 5/24. 

    There is only room for 16 teams and 10 teams have expressed interested so far BUT only 2 of those teams have turned in all their permission slips. Please get your permission slip signed and turned into the front office OR during lunches on Thursdays and Fridays. 

    Information on the rest of the festivities, raffle tickets, silent auction, etc will come home this week.
