Kiss a Senior Goodbye
Each year, AFS conducts a fundraiser in May called Kiss a Senior Goodbye. Students, staff, and especially parents can purchase a small bag of Hershey Kisses and add a personalized message to be delivered to a graduating senior.

AFS club members sell during lunches, but the real success comes from parents of seniors, who will purchase these treats for their kids or their kids' friends. AFS will assemble the treat bags with the messages and deliver to seniors either June 4 or 5, while the seniors are still in school. Orders are due by May 30. Click here for the form.
