Good morning! These are your morning announcements. 


Congratulations to the 9th Grade Visual Arts sculpture students. Under the inspiring guidance of their art teacher Randy Gachet,  the students took home 1st and 3rd place in the High School Sculpture Project during the recent Magic City Art Connection at Sloss Furnace.  


Congratulations also to the following Visual Arts students for their awards at the 2023 Statewide High School Juried Art Exhibit. There were 240 students in grades 10 through 12 from across the state who submitted nearly 400 works of art to this annual competition. Out of those works 80 pieces were selected.

ASFA middle-school Creative Writing students Savé Davis Williams, Chloe Floyd, Maddy Grant, Mairwen Jones, Berkeley Owens, Allie Rezek, and Claire Thomas will be reading their work in the Lecture Hall tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. Please join us with permission from your instructors.  


Friday is a Focus Schedule and school will be dismissed at 3 p.m. following the 1 p.m. Spring Dance Performance.  


All ASFA students are invited to participate in an ASFA Community Engagement event on Saturday, May 6. The ASFA Groove Rhythm Nation Dance and Drum Workshop will be held at the Greenhouse, 602 – 19th Street Ensley from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. This is a free community event.  


The ASFA Ambassador application for next school year is now available on the ASFA website under Student Life. Students currently enrolled in grades 9-11 may apply. Current Ambassadors do not need to reapply. To keep the Ambassador organization a manageable size, only 10-15 new students will be added for next year, and only the first 20 completed applications will be given consideration. The deadline to apply is 8 a.m. Friday, May 5.  Best wishes on your application!
