Welcome to another school year! While we are getting back to some of our “normal” traditions, we may still experience some hiccups along the way. Last year demonstrated that our students, staff, and families are able adjust as needed and we were able to continue to provide learning experiences in a variety of ways. We will definitely be able to take what was learned last year to make this one an even better year for all our stakeholders. We have a dedicated staff who is willing to help in any way and we are all excited to get back into the swing of things! Throughout the year if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Finally, a message to our students: high school is a time to try new things and figure out what suits you – how you learn best, what you are most interested in, and what natural strengths and talents you bring to the table. Staff at AHS will work to provide you a variety of learning experiences and environments, extra and co-curricular opportunities, and additional tools to be successful beyond high school. Just as we are committed to provide all this for you, it is your responsibility to take chances and engage in your own learning possibilities. As such, my goal for you is to continually choose to challenge yourself. One of the questions I pose to my own children every day and I will pose to each of you as well is, “How did you grow as a learner today?” My hope is that each and every day you are able to answer that question.
Here’s to a great 2021-22 school year!
