 Drop D

  • Valentine’s Day is on Thursday, and the Class of 2019 wants to help you show a little extra love on that day in the form of carnations and Hershey kisses delivered to your (special and ordinary) friends and your favorite teachers. Order flowers or candy for anyone at lunch today and we'll deliver them during A Period on the Thursday the 14th. See you at lunch!
  • Schools for Africa will meet TODAY after school in room 147 (Ms Cissé's room). New members are always welcome.

  • IMPORTANT MCAS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 10TH GRADE STUDENTS:  Please be sure to bring your charged Chrome Book to Advisory on Thursday.  You will need it for an MCAS tutorial that day.

  • The girls swimming killed it at the Central/West Sectional Meet on Sunday and ended up securing the 6th place spot in the team scoring in all of central and western mass despite being one of the smallest teams there. They had many top 8 places in individual events. Fabulous meet!!  Go Canes!!!

  • The last day to sign up for the Theater Company field trip to see Sleep No More - the immersive theater adaptation of Macbeth - is this Thursday.  See Mr. Bechtold with any questions. 

  • JETS Club: The Big Day is Saturday, March 16, but we have not yet collected much of the money needed to register all our teams! Please get your registration fees into Ms. Blauner, Room 223. That would be a check made out to ARHS-JETS with YOUR NAME in the memo line. If you would like to request a fee waiver, please see Ms Blauner (or email her)
  • Important Announcement for Seniors: We will begin sending out mid-year reports to colleges Tuesday morning.  If there is a problem with your mid-year report, you must notify Mrs. Garrity in the Guidance Office by 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, and we will hold submission of your report until the required changes are made.

  • Feeling stuck on where to start when it comes to writing a great paper? Come to the first monthly mini-writing workshop in the library TODAY, Tuesday, February 12th from 2:30-3pm. We'll be tackling how to break down research questions--and how to create your own--in a fun and informal workshop open to all students. Questions? See Ms. Lewis in Rm 141 or Ms. Stocker in the library for more info!  
  • Best Buddies, a national organization dedicated to promoting friendship between individuals of all abilities, will be meeting on Tuesdays from 2:30-3:30pm in the cafeteria and occasionally move to the community.  The first meeting, for example, was a trip to Glazed Donuts.  If you like friendship, fun, and the occasional maple cream donut, this could be the club for you!  Please contact Mr. Kusek at kusekc@arps.org for more information.
