To our AWESOME PTSA for a great staff luncheon on Monday, Jan. 27. On behalf of the staff of AFMS, I’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU. A special SHOUT OUT to the parent volunteers, Mrs. Rooney, Mrs. Owens, Mrs. Olive, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Bertoncino, and Mrs. Ludlow, for staying on campus all day, welcoming each staff member with a smile and ensuring we all had a chance to enjoy a tasty lunch. It was very much appreciated.
To Dr. Duvall and the AFMS Student Pep Band for providing awesome tunes during our home basketball games. Thank you very much for your support of the Chargers!
To all the Charger families who donated to the PTSA last week. We have met and exceeded our goals. Your donations will ensure that events planned to support students and staff at AFMS will have the funding needed. On behalf of the PTSA, Staff and Students at AFMS-THANK YOU!
