Mr. Norby's Update-
Good Afternoon Armstrong Community,
Congratulations to the class of 2021 on completing a very complex school year. We are so proud of your effort and attitude through all of the changes in the past year. You are all truly remarkable. Also want to thank you for decorating my office on your last day!! (See below)
Many 2021 students are receiving scholarships to various Universities and we are so proud of their accomplishments. We would like to congratulate Jaquelin Dominguez-Plateado for receiving a $2000 scholarship from Arctic Wolf. They are a great corporation who is partnering with Armstrong High School to award various scholarships. We are thankful for their generosity and so proud of Jaquelin and her hard work!
We are looking forward to a great commencement ceremony next week!!
Stay safe and GO FALCONS!

Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that LGBTQ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

Summer School and PSEO Reminders
Yearbooks will arrive for pickup between June 8 and June 11. Exact times and dates will get communicated as soon as we know for sure when printing is complete and they get shipped. They will arrive a week later than normal, as the yearbook students used every possible day to get more students included in the book once in-person learning began in April.
To make sure students can get all the personal messages and classmate signatures before the end of school, however, all those who ordered may pick up 8-page autograph sections that will securely stick into books once they arrive, These booklets will be available during all lunches June 1-4, as well as in the front of the building on Wednesday June 2 and June 9 for distance learners who come to return textbooks, Chromebooks and other materials.
Questions? Email the yearbook staff: AHS_Yearbook@rdale.org
