January 3, 2020

Happy New Year!

I hope you are looking forward to a great 2020!  We are excited for the end of semester I, some possible schedule changes/adjustments, and starting the course selection process of 2020-2021.

The schedule for mid-term exams is attached here.  Please remember that students can only miss an exam for excused reasons listed in the student handbook. Students can not choose to miss an exam and complete it during the make-up time. If you have questions about this policy please direct it to the teacher or your student's counselor.

Program of Studies /Course registration timelines: School Year 2020-2021

The Program of Studies will be available to students on the AHS website by Friday, January 17.  Please note that all classes that are proposed in the Program of Studies do not always run. Course can only run if there is sufficient student interest and certified staff available to run the course.

Teachers will make course recommendations- January 21- January 31st
(ALL teachers are asked to have conversations with students before they make recommendations. Students can also start conversations with teachers about the classes they are interested in taking next year.)
Class meetings to review teacher recommendation- February 3rd (B day)
9th grade- 9:35am
10th grade- 10:15am
