Students, AHS is very happy to be able to provide a variety of areas for lunch.  The outside seating area is a real plus for a chance to get outside while the weather is still nice.  With eating in this area comes an extra amount of responsibility and thoughtfulness.  The area outside is our main entrance to the public and it the first impression that the public have of our school.  It is also thoughtful when we consider the extra time and energy it takes for other people to pick up our trash and lunch trays.  Please consider those that are required to do this each day.  Our custodial staff is among the best and helping them would be greatly appreciated.

AHS FRIDAY PARENT EMAIL 9-13-19

CROSS COUNTRY
Would you like some Girls Cross Country spirit wear for your wardrobe, here are some links to
buy the t-shirt, long sleeve t-shirt, and sweatshirt that we have this year.
Long Sleeve ($17.51): https://www.customink.com/g/pfa0-00by-qjn3
T-Shirt ($12.46): https://www.customink.com/g/pfa0-00bw-zrju
Sweatshirt ($28.16): https://www.customink.com/g/pfa0-00by-pw3n

PROCEDURES FOR DR. APPOINTMENTS
If you are planning to take your student to a doctor appointment during the school day, it is
helpful to notify the attendance secretary, via note or phone call 515-817-0601, the morning of
the appointment. If your student will need a pass to leave during a class, he/she can get a
paper pass to show the teacher before class instruction begins. This saves the secretaries
from interrupting classes during instruction time. Secretaries are not encouraged to call the
teacher during class instruction to pull a child out of class. The pass the student should have
can be picked up in the main office the same school day of the appointment. Once the student
has that pass, he/she does not need to stop back in the office on the way out of the building. If
the student is coming back to school after an appointment, then he/she should “check in” at the
office again.

COLLEGE REPRESENTATIVES
The following college representatives will be in Student Services next week. Please see Mrs.
Monroe if you need a pass to visit with these college representatives.
