Principals Message

AHS Parents and Students,

I would like to congratulate our DARC Robotics Team, Scholars Bowl Team, and Cheerleaders for doing great things over the past week!! Keep up the great work!

I would also like to thank our JROTC Battalion for greeting our local Veterans at Olive Garden on Friday. Thank you again to all the veterans who have served and protected our country.

We have a home basketball game on Tuesday night, but the Friday night game has been postponed due to Muscle Shoals being in the football playoffs.

As always, if you have a question or a concern please feel free to email me at #PositivityMatters

Have a great day!
