Faith MS: School Activities


At Faith Middle School, we have created a co-curricular program that is student-centered and consequently one that kids want to be a part of. Students who participate in an after-school activities program must be picked up or depart the campus after the activity ends.  Students must also be registered with Child, Youth, and School Services (CYS). Parents can register their children at Building 104 on Marchant Avenue or online.

Just a reminder; all after-school activity pickups will be in the bus loop near the gym. Due to safety reasons, no pick-ups will be in front of the school.

After school clubs and activities normally meet only on days that the school follows a full day schedule, NOT on early release days. Also, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, students will be notified through the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.


If you have any questions concerning clubs, sports, or activities, you may e-mail the Activities Director at Activities.FaithMS@am.dodea.edu
