Kudos to all staff, students, and parents for an excellent first week of school. A big THANK YOU to Mr. Hill, 7th grade administrator/ administrator over transportation, for ensuring our students arrived and departed our campus safely and on the correct bus.
Kudos to our amazing office staff, Mrs. Cabrera, Mrs. Edwards, Mrs. McDaniels, Mrs. Strepay, Mrs. Pearce. These hardworking Charger staff members are often behind the scenes making sure we are up and running. They welcome our families, enroll our students, tour new students, order supplies and keep us in compliance, and ensures new and returning staff are warmly welcomed and has all the necessary items they need to welcome students into their classrooms. They also take care of the principal! They are AMAZING!

Kudos-School safety is a top priority at AFMS. We completed our first fire drill last week. Staff and students will engage in a lockdown drill very soon.
