Dear Atholton Families,

I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving. It is hard to believe that next week is December!

THEY DID IT! Last Tuesday evening, the Lady Raiders Volleyball team capped off a perfect season with a sweep of Bel Air in the Maryland State 3A Final. Raider Nation filled Richie Coliseum at UMCP as a sea of black and our pep band dominated the atmosphere. With such support, the Lady Raiders felt at home and delivered on the team goal of capturing the state title. Congratulations to all the girls and Coach Schofield for their hard work and determination this season. It has been a truly a pleasure watching them play and work as a team on the court. Additionally, thank you to our Raider Nation fans who came out to support the team. In particular, the AHS Athletic Boosters for providing a fan bus to the venue. Please check out the highlights of the game and the medal ceremony. Now on to winter sports!

Our first quarter ice cream Honor Roll celebration will take place this Friday during lunch shifts (postponed from our snow day). I am thrilled to celebrate the outstanding achievement of over ONE THOUSAND of our students!

Wishing everyone a fantastic week!
