October 30, 2020


Good afternoon-

Please review the attached letter regarding a new tool for social-emotional learning we are piloting at AHS: MyLife parent letter. Teachers will be trained on Tuesday and students have been invited to class meetings on Wednesday to learn about the tool. Class meetings will be held via Zoom and students will receive the link on Tuesday.
    Seniors: 11:45     Juniors:12:00     Sophomores:12:15     Freshman: 12:30

As a reminder, there is no school for students on Tuesday, November 3. Teachers will be involved in Professional Development that day. Wednesday, November 4 students will resume the regular schedule.

The end of the term is quickly approaching. Term 1 (which is essentially Semester 1 for all classes except D block) ends on November 13. Students should be checking iStudent and connecting with teachers if they are concerned about their progress. Remote Only students should be checking in with their teachers and support personnel at Educere as well. As always, reach out to counselors or administration with any concerns or questions.

Health Emergency Forms: Please return the forms sent in the mail before school started and shared in the recent Superintendent newsletter. It is important we have updated student information on file in the event of an emergency. 

Picture day at AHS has been scheduled for November 10 & 12. All students have their picture taken for their ID.  Forms are now available in the front lobby for families wishing to order pictures. All students will have their picture taken for a student ID.

Have a safe, socially distant Halloween. 

BC Splash is a 1-day event held at Boston College each semester where students in grades 7-12 can take fun, interesting, and engaging classes that are taught and designed by our undergraduates! 

In response to COVID-19 our event will be virtual this semester, but we have put together a great day and fantastic lineup of classes over zoom for the students. They can take classes such as The Economics of Friendship, The Physics of Airplanes, The Power of Positive Affirmations, and many others! 

BC Splash will be held virtually on Sunday, November 8th from 10am - 3:15pm. 

Students can register at our website,

Registration closes on Friday, November 6th at 11:59pm.

Our mission is to build a love of learning and curiosity in our students by exciting them about a diversity of topics and encouraging their passions, inside and outside of the classroom. It is also a great way for them to meet some older students, learn about the college experience, and see what Boston College has to offer!

Additionally, we offer a parent program simultaneously with our student program for parents to learn more about the college process. This includes a panel with our Student Admission Program, a presentation from our financial aid office, and their very own Splash class!
