  • Seniors -  FINANCIAL AID & FAFSA. It is your responsibility to track the financial aid deadlines for your schools. Check on the Admissions and Financial Aid Page of each of the schools you are applying to. The Financial Aid deadlines are strict, don't miss them. Generally, you have to complete the FAFSA (you need a FSA ID) and, for some, CSS Profile. Note the emails sent to both you and your guardians from Ms. Cuffee-Gray for links to workshops and webinars on how to complete the FAFSA. 
  • Have you trained in dance at ARHS or beyond and are looking for a way to dance in school more? Look no further! Come dance in this year’s musical, Hair, a rock show about hippies in the 1960s who lived in the moment as they sought to change the world. It will be one big communal party after two years away from the stage. And - we want as many featured dancers as possible! There will be a first meeting and session for featured dancers on Tuesday, January 25th from 4:00-5:00 pm. Bring clothes and footwear that you can dance in. We’ll do a short warm up, some choreography work, and possibly some improvisation at the end. Tell your other dancer friends! Any questions? Find or email Bech at bechtolj@arps.org or Kathryn Carvel at carvelk@arps.org

·         It's Wellness Wednesday!

This week our Wellness Wednesday Tip is:  Commit to a resilience practice.

Resilience helps us recover from difficult experiences. Resilience is something we all have within ourselves. We can cultivate more resilience in ourselves by making more time in our lives for what makes us feel alive.  Spend time thinking or journaling about what you do that gives you a sense of possibility, creativity, awe, or love? Your answers might surprise you. Choose one of your answers to intentionally practice regularly. This will allow you to grow your inner reserves of resilience stronger and stronger. Remember: resilience is our ability to connect to what makes us feel alive.
