AFPC Parent Education Team

Thank you so much to all the parents who attended the Fall Workshop.  We had a great time while learning about Choice Theory!  A special thanks to Mrs. Carson, Mrs. Szoke and Mrs. Zurek for volunteering their time. 

AFPC Choice Time

Choice Time begins the week of November 27th and runs through March 23rd.  Choice Time gives students in 1st-5th grade the unique opportunity to choose to do an indoor activity rather than go outside for recess during the winter months.  This volunteer opportunity is perfect for parents unable to volunteer at the school because of younger children.  Choice Time is the one time you can bring younger siblings with you!  To volunteer for Choice Time, please complete the form that was sent home with your child and return it to school with your child, or download it here. We MUST receive a paper form in order to be place you on the Choice Time calendar.
