School Announcements For ASFA Students –Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019

Good morning! These are your morning announcements.

ASFA’s GSA (Gender & Sexuality Alliance) will have its first meeting of the year tomorrow, Thursday 9/26, in Room 190. (Go through the purple door in to M/S and walk straight back.) We will be discussing leadership positions, upcoming activities, and checking in with each other. The sooner everyone gets in there and we get started, the more we get to talk about. Scan the QR code on the flyers that are around the school for more info.

Because of PSAT preparation and testing, the 9th graders will eat during Lunch A tomorrow.

ALL AP registration forms are due to Ms. Chin this Friday, September 27. Your exam(s) will NOT be ordered if you do not turn in this form. A $40 deposit for each exam is due on Nov 1, 2019. You have the option to pay the full amount on Nov 1. You can pay with cash or write a check to ASFA with your name on the memo line.
