Get your games on!
Come out and watch our boys soccer at home this week on MON and WED, Girls Soccer on THURS, and our girls volleyball team TONIGHT (Mon) as they all play home games. You don’t have many opportunities left to catch these teams in action at home!
Also, the second #FUNKYFRIDAY theme for September is this FRIDAY, Sept. 29 and the theme is HAWAIIAN! Dress up in your favorite Hawaiian outfits as we mourn the loss of summer this week, with the arrival of fall. One lucky student wins a gift card!

Eighty-seven Astronomy and FLC Club members visited Fort Roberdeau last week to plan out their haunts for the 7th Annual Haunted Trail to be held on Saturday, October 7th. You were all excellent, and no major mountain pie or telescope injuries were reported. There will be an important meeting this Thursday, September 28th right after school from 2:50-3:30 PM. Permissions slips for the Haunted Trail will be handed out, and final planning completed. You can still help on October 7th, even if you didn’t attend our planning trip! Hope to see you there!

Attention Students: Are you interested in being a lawyer? Do you enjoy acting or theatre? Are you looking to improve your public speaking skills? If so, Mock Trial could be the club for you! The AAHS Mock Trial Team will hold its first informational meeting this Thursday, 9/28, in room B-311 from 3:00 – 3:30 PM. If you have any questions or cannot attend, please email Mrs. Negri.

Attention students: If you have given any thought to joining the military after graduation then you will want to be sure you are here on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week during lunches.

Please be sure to stop by and talk to these gentlemen.

Attention swimmers: We will start swim clinics today from 3-5 in the pool. Clinics will be held Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. There will be team members there to help guide new people with strokes. Females wear one-piece suits and boys wear swim trunks or jammers.
