The Scholastic Book Fair is Coming Again!

Because of your generous support of our Scholastic Book Fair in the fall, we have been able to purchase LOTS of new books for our school collection! The students and teachers are so excited to have lots of new books to read! Thank you so much!!


We are also excited to announce that we will have a second Scholastic Book Fair this year! The book fair will be here on February 6-10, and we can't wait for you to see all of the new books that will be available! This will be a great time to add some new books to your home libraries and just in time for Valentine's Day too!

Inclement Weather Reminder

In the event of inclement weather, the Weekday Preschool will follow the same closings as Clarke County Schools. If Clarke County Schools have called for a one-hour delay, the Weekday Preschool will still begin on time. If Clarke County is delayed two hours, we will close. If the preschool feels it is in the best interest of families and teachers to close the preschool due to the weather, we will send an email to you as soon as possible to update you.

Parenting with Purpose

All parents are welcome to join this small group opportunity at AFUMC! The groups will begin again on Friday morning, January 13, at 9:30am. The discussion topic and study will focus on parenting and all of the opportunities that accompany it! The groups will meet every other Friday through April. Childcare is available. Please register on the AFUMC church website if you plan to attend!
