Pictures from the Week of 8/29-9/2
It was a busy week at AOC from Back to School Night, student presentations, the school district Safety Symposium and ASB's Back to School Dance. Thank you to ASB for an OUTSTANDING opening event. We had 200 students in attendance. Thank you to our wonderful staff for chaperoning!
And, thank you to our ROOTS parents for providing cold water to our students during the dance at Back to School Night. Thank you to all of our parents who donated and supported ROOTS by buying baked goods and just simply donating to our PTA. We appreciate all of the support. It was great to see our students let loose and dance the night away on Friday! And, it was a great pleasure to see so many parents and families come to our Back-to-School Night! It was a great week at AOC!
