October 12, 2018

Good afternoon and happy Homecoming!

It was a fun-filled Spirit Week at AHS which ended with our annual Homecoming Pep Rally.  All of the athletic teams as well as the clubs and classes showcased their accomplishments at the rally and there was a lot of fun as well.  Classes competed in potato-sack & 3-legged races, a tug-of-war, and the traditional teacher-student team chair races.  There was a lot of energy in the gym!  It was fun to end the rally with a whole school picture that hopefully be the cover of this year's yearbook.  I am looking forward to seeing lots of fans at this afternoon's athletic events and the homecoming tailgate/bbq at 5pm in back of the school.

MCAS scores were mailed on Wednesday so should arrive soon if they have not already.  Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or did not receive your child's score report.  All current juniors took the English and math MCAS last spring as well as any student taking biology. The AHS report card will be posted on the website shortly and the accountability letter shares more information about the results from a district standpoint.  

A reminder that the new online store run the Clocker Club closes on 10/14!

Picture Retakes are Wednesday, October 17!  Pictures were distributed today to all students. 

October 17 is an Early Release Day- AHS dismisses at 12:35pm
