Principal's Message

AJHS Family,

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend break last week! Our students did a great job coming back to campus and getting to work. Progress reports and ACAP score reports (from last year) were handed out on Friday during first block so please be on the lookout. I would like to remind our families that you can track your student's grades through PowerSchool online. Please have your student check in with the Guidance department if you need that information.

Decatur Youth Services also provides after school tutoring services.

Spread the Word

We will attempt to get information out to our students and families in many different ways. Although SchoolCast is great tool to get information out quickly, many of our stakeholders "see and forget" these messages. Please help spread the word to follow AJHS on Facebook and Instagram. I also think that many people would rather see or watch than read. FB allows us to post short video message, tutorials and announcements. Thanks!
