Congratulations to Gage King who was announced as the 2020-21 recipient of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship!
Seniors: With the addition of virtual learning to start the school year, much of the information that is typically delivered to seniors on paper will be posted to Google classroom. Each senior has been invited to join the "Class of 2021 Information" classroom. Join and check the assignment list weekly.
Orders for graduation items (cap, gown, announcements, etc.) were collected by representatives from Herff-Jones on Friday, November 6. ALL SENIORS MUST HAVE A CAP AND GOWN IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY! If you have not already ordered, you can still order by mail, phone, or Internet. Don't wait too long as the cost for a cap and gown will continue to increase througout the winter and spring.
SCHOLARSHIP UPDATE: Do NOT assume that scholarship deadlines will change just because an AHS student is attending virtually. Please pay close attention to all deadlines and ask for required materials in a timely fashion so that teachers and counselors can submit as necessary. A lack of planning on your part will not result in an extension!!! If you are not sure how to submit something, ask!
IMPACT STUDENTS: As long as Impact Institute is conducting in-person OR virtual classes, AHS students are expected to ride the bus and attend programs. The only exception is if a student is ill or has been notified to quarantine due to a Covid close contact. Students who are not able to attend in-person are expected to keep up with the Impact curriculum via Google Classroom. If you have questions, contact the AHS office.
