      Are you a singer, a poet, a rapper,....? On October 17 we will have a speaker here who wants to hear from students before he speaks.  Let Ms. St. Coeur know if you are interested in sharing your talent before he speaks.

 

      Are you interested in being a member of the AHS School Council? This is a group of faculty, parents, and students that meets once a month to help advise the administration.  We are looking for a member of the freshman and senior class as well as one at-large member.  Elections will be held on September 28 at lunch.  Email Ms. St. Coeur if you are interested or want some more information.   Meetings are held from 4-5:30pm on Wednesday afternoon once a month.

 

      Are you looking for a way to accumulate a lot of community service hours? The Clocker Club is interested in opening the indoor concession stand each day after school until 4 PM and are seeking volunteers who could make a commitment and support their fundraising efforts.  If this is something you may be interested in, please reach out to clockers@clockerclub.org
