Sign Up for Falcon Friends

Falcon Friends is the easiest way to volunteer at Aviara Oaks Middle School.  Parents volunteer a few hours of their time each month to allow AOMS students access to the sports fields at lunch, providing a positive presence among the students maintaining a safe, energetic atmosphere.  Falcon Friends is a fun, easy way to get involved  at the school and only requires a few hours of your time. 

If you can spare as little as three hours a month (two x hour and a half shifts) between the hours of 11:00-12:30, Falcon Friends is perfect for you!  Please contact  for more information.  We prefer to have two volunteers per shift, so if you have a friend who would be willing to volunteer with you, please let us know

Sign up for Falcon Friends now!  For more information, visit our website.
