The seniors of American Falls Academy have built a "Good News" bulletin board that is between Kens and Rockland Pharmacy.  The board notifies the public of  positive events that are happening in our classrooms and schools that usually do not make the paper.  Seniors from the Academy have been assigned to different schools and visit with teachers weekly to gather information for the board.  It is the Academy's wish that this board will become a tradition for the posting of positive school news in the community.  Information is changed every Wednesday; please stop by and read about the many wonderful things that are happening in our schools!

The current students are:
Cade Anderson & Enrique Portillo - Hillcrest
Ben Hidalgo & Ethen Gonzalez- AF Intermediate
Diana Lopez & Stephanie Wasson - WTMS
Jeremy Hauber & John Campbell - AFHS
