Don't leave personal items unattended

Students, please do not leave skateboards or bikes overnight on AHS campus. We are experiencing a number of items being stolen. With that said it does not mean that AHS students are responsible for the thefts due to the nature of our campus layout.

Leadership November Assembly

"Our November Assembly was in honor, reflection, and remembrance of Veterans Day and lives lost recent events in our country. We welcomed Vietnam Veteran Jack Duggan and listened to his powerful story of life after the war. "I ask for you to do the right thing in your community," he encouraged the students to do in honor of veterans. Student Greta Zeve paid tribute to the victims of the Paradise Fire, while student Marin Monteith gave an impactful speech in honor of the Tree of Life Synagogue (Pittsburgh) shooting. Brooklyn Williams and Madison Davis concluded with a song about resilience. While these can be difficult topics to discuss, our student body came together and wrote thoughtful "Recognition Cards" for the Tree of Life Synagogue and the city of Paradise. This act of kindness became an outlet for students to directly give their love and support for these communities."
