This is the big parent event of the year. Come on down to ARHS this Thursday, October 6th at 6:30pm. It's a great chance to walk the halls that your teens walk every day. You'll get a copy of your teen's schedule and follow their day. Sit in their classrooms, meet their teachers and find out what's happening. It's awesome, don't miss it! Student schedules will be available at 6:30 pm, and a meeting for parent/guardians starts at 6:45 pm.
ARHS PGO plays an important role in bridging funding gaps in our education system. The current economic situation has made this function more important than ever. By volunteering our time and money, we are able to provide valuable resources that benefit all of our students and their families. Thanks to the generosity of your support, we are able to provide grants to teachers to significantly enhance the experience of our students.
The funds received annually from Stop & Shop are limited only by the number of cards we register. The more cards the greater the reward. We have found that the most effective way to register cards is to greet shoppers on their way in and ask them to support ARHS by registering their card. It couldn't be easier, and the community is very receptive. The only thing missing at this point is the volunteers to sign up shoppers.
Congratulations to ARHS senior Ailton Correia who recently completed four weeks of study, funded by a full scholarship, at the renowned Parsons School of Design. Correia was selected for the scholarship by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. Nationwide, fewer than 100 students received this honor. Correia focused on product design at Parsons' Summer Intensive Studies program in New York City.
