We had a great week celebrating our AWESOME AGS Staff during Staff Appreciation Week! We appreciate them everyday, but enjoyed honoring their dedication and hard work this week. The weeklong celebration was kicked off on Monday with a Candy Cart from the principals, Tuesday the staff enjoyed breakfast from the AGS PTO, a Star Studded Lunch was provided by the PTO on Wednesday, a morning snack cart on Wednesday from the PTO, and Friday we wrapped up with Pizza and the annual AGS Staff T Shirt from the principals. The PTO also provided staff members with gift cards. A huge shout out to all of the PTO volunteers that made this week special for our staff.

Last week volunteers from the AGS PTO cleaned up the flower beds and added 85 bags of mulch throughout the school grounds. AGS would like to give the following PTO members a BIG SHOUT OUT - Daniella Gilmour, Desiree Metcalfe, and Shawn Miller for all of their hard work! These volunteers help to make AGS look great and we appreciate it! We would also like to thank our friends at HOME DEPOT of Fenton for generously donating the 85 bags of mulch!


Kindness for Crumbl

A total of 50 free Crumbl Coupons were distributed. We also held a kindness poster contest. All students who earned a kindness coupons and/or created a poster were recognized by the principals!
