The Senior Awards Ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 26th at 7pm in the AHS auditorium.  All seniors are welcome to attend; however, only those seniors that are receiving a standing award or a stage award will receive an invitation to attend.



Remember! Plan to go to the MEDIA CENTER when called during 5th or 6th period on Tuesday or Wednesday, and on Thursday, you will have all afternoon to turn in items as all seniors are scheduled to be here for the final dress rehearsals and the luncheon. Some of you without a 5th and 6th period this year do not need to worry as Thursday is meant for you! 

Also, Ms. Fowler, AHS bookkeeper, will be here to collect any payments you need to make on these or any other items, so we will be a one-stop shop for you in the media center.

Please do not wait until the last minute to clear obligations.  If you have any questions or special circumstances you want to share about books, Chromebooks, or Chromebook chargers, please stop by the Media Center.
