Next Friday, September 20th, the Armatage staff and students will be participating in our annual Armatage Peace Walk.  The intent is to have the staff and students walk around the school in silence and reflect on ways they can make Armatage a welcoming & peaceful school for everyone at 1:10 pm. This will be our third year of walking together in a time of quiet reflection.  Click the title link for more information.

Lunch Forms
Monday, September 16, 2019 7:00 AM

All Armatage families must submit an Application for Educational Benefits each year.  Parents can complete the form at, or request a printed copy from the Armatage office.  This determines the school’s level of State and Federal (Title I) dollars that are allocated to each school to support students who need additional resources.

The office staff will call all families who do not submit a form, so please do so to reduce the time required to make these calls.  Thank you!
