AFA Spirit Days

What are AFA Days/AFA Spirit Days?

 
AFA Days are school sponsored "Dress Down"/”No Uniform” days once a month for all students. The theme for each day is decided either by AFA students through the representative democracy of our Student Government Association or by the school Administration.
 
Some AFA Days or additional days are hosted by the Administration or by class projects. AFA days are a way to do something a little out of the ordinary. The school daywill continue as usual - we'll just look a little different. Students will still participate in learning activities, recess/outdoor play, and their scheduled PE or Art class on this day and may not have the opportunity to dress into or out of spirit wear during the day.
 
Participation in AFA Days is optional. Students who choose not to participate are expected to be in complete school uniform or wear AFA Spirit Wear.
