Recycling

AHS has reached their goal of 20,000 plastic bottles and aluminum cans! We have reset our goal for 25,000 to keep going and keeping our school and the environment green!!


Filtered Watering Systems

Through a joint effort with Booster Club and numerous clubs within the school we are trying to raise money for 2-3 water filter systems that will replace our drinking fountains! We have just about reached our goal but would still love it if you would like to help us with this endeavor. We want to promote the effort to drink more water and feel this will help with that. There will be a bucket at the concession stand tonight for any donations you would like to give us! The goal is to get these installed over Spring Break!!
