This past year's wild weather has affected the area's pumpkin crop and we are having difficulty acquiring the needed pumpkins for our annual Enchanted Forest. We're hoping you can help us with a donation of a pumpkin or two. You can drop them off at the Center at any time, leaving them by the entrance.Thank you for your continued support in our efforts. They are greatly appreciated.
Our children grow up very quickly, as members of the Classes of 2011 and 2023 prove in the video "Blink of An Eye". What never changes is the joy and excitement they feel in their daily triumphs - both big and small. Presented to faculty and staff at Convocation in September, the video was created by ARHS Video & Audio Technology teacher, Lee Larcheveque, and stars many familiar faces.See the video here: http://www.arps.org/node/3321

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.
