Note on School Messenger- It's the same code for all districts and schools. ie: if you have students in another school you'll receive messages from both schools on the same text number. Ours will start off with "GAA Families" or "GAA Mustangs"- something like that so you know it's from us 📱😉


We also recommend saving our school phone number in your phone so you know it's us calling 480-325-6100
