How to Get Involved

Every year, Home & School (H&S) organizes a variety of events to build community and foster an inclusive and welcoming environment. In addition to events for families, H&S also organizes faculty and staff appreciation events.

We rely on the participation of families to make all of these events successful. Those who take advantage of the many ways to get involved, tell us that their experience at AFS is greatly enriched and many attribute strong friendships with other families to participating in H&S activities.

Read all AFS emails & sign up to volunteer

Email is the primary method of communication for H&S. Keep abreast of what is going on at school so your family can fully participate in all that AFS has to offer. Opportunities to sign up to volunteer are included in event emails sent by Home & School.

Show your AFS spirit

We hope you will attend AFS athletic events, concerts, robotics competitions, theatrical productions and other public displays of student talent. You can purchase Spirit Wear at periodic school events and at our online store. Be on the lookout for emails regarding spirit days and calls for our cheering section, the Roo Mob. (Did you know that a group of kangaroos is called a mob?)
