ASFS PTA INSPIRATION THROUGH PARTICIPATION WE NEED YOU

 

Welcome To The ASFS PTA Website

Our theme for this year is inspiration through participation. When we work together, we can inspire our children to achieve greatness. We created this website as a resource to provide access to important information, helpful links and tools, and keep you informed of activities, programs and events at ASFS. We hope you will not only join the PTA but be an active member, meeting new friends and helping shape the education of our children. 

 

 

   

DIRECTORY

​​​​We have created a secure, login section of the PTA website to allow you access to the directory. From this secure site you can view messages from the staff and PTA. This new site allows for secure and safe communication.
