School Announcements and Upcoming Events:
School Dance-On Friday, October 25, 2019, Student Council will be hosting a school dance. The Fright Night dance is from 7-9pm and will cost $5. Tickets will be sold at lunch during the week leading to the dance. Tickets will also be sold at the door. Costumes are not required but highly encouraged. Concessions will be sold during the dance so bring extra money for food and drinks. Drop off will be in front of the school but pick up will either be in the carpool lane (6th grade) or bus loop (7th and 8th grade). All students must be picked up no later than 9:15. We look forward to another fun filled evening for our students.
SOCKtober at AFMS. During the entire month of October, students and staff are asked to donate as many pairs of new socks as possible. All donated socks will be given to "Note in the Pocket," an organization which helps Wake County students in need. The goal once again is to collect 5,000 pairs of new socks before October 31st.
Student Lunches: In an effort to maintain an orderly lunch environment, we are requesting that parents refrain from or limit bringing take-out (restaurant/fast food) for student lunches. If students forget their lunch or lunch money, we have an established school account, thanks to our PTSA, which will allow students to have a school lunch.
Student Check-Out Reminder- please refrain from checking your child out of school or requesting transportation changes after 2:30, as we can’t guarantee that information will be shared with your child during this short time frame prior to school dismissing at 3:00.
