High School

Season’s greetings to everyone! Hard to believe we are halfway through the year already. So many things have happened so far this year, it’s almost hard to remember them all; well, ok, it’s not hard at all.   

To start- who can forget Homecoming week, with all the decorating, game playing, and cheering? Not to mention the dancing and crowning of John Bant and Berenice Lira as King and Queen. 

To continue the good times, our student fans stepped up BIG TIME to support our Lady Jays volleyball team, taking them all the way to State. Of course the girls had to do the work on the court, and did they ever!  The girls entered the post season with high hopes and much perseverance after a tough regular season. Thankfully for all of us the girls hit their stride at a perfect time, advancing to the STATE tournament.  The first time our girls have seen that much success in 40 years.  What an exciting ride it was!  Kudos to Coach Cheryl Schreiner and the girls for all their hard work.   

To prove that we truly are all in this together, the AHS Choir, along with our Musical Tech crew presented Disney’s “High School Musical.”  Between the sets, the singing, and the acting, the show truly came to life as all students put their heart and soul into every part.   

As we bring the first half of the school year to a close, we will be blessed with more music and more games.  We will watch our kids perform in whatever way they choose and we will be lucky to have had the opportunity to watch them be STARS in their own right.  How blessed are we to have so much talent in our little school.   

Thank you to all that come out to show your support of our students in all of these varying capacities.  It truly does take a village to raise our kids; and, I think, this village does a pretty good job!   As we look forward to the second half of the school year, be watching for more important activity dates so that you can continue to support the youth of our community.  When our community members get involved with our youth, it is truly a winning combination, and certainly proves once again, that we are all in this together.
