General Announcements

Hey Key Clubbers, don't miss our end of the year pizza party after school today in the Forum.  See you there!

Attention all newly appointed FBLA Officers.  There is an officer meeting Wednesday after school in Room S1. 

The C-22 Computer Lab will be closed tomorrow from 11:00 until 4:00 due to AP testing.  If you need to use a computer, laptops will be available for use in Room C-24.  Please plan accordingly.

Thank you to students who have paid fees this week.  We still have about 450 who have not paid.  Emails were sent out to students with fees.  Please check your email and bring in payment now to avoid delays at arena scheduling.  Bring a check or cash to the bookkeeper, or pay online with a credit card.  A link to pay online can be found on the Arapahoe website.  

At the after prom a junior won a package from Herff Jones.  Could that winner come to the front office at her convenience?  There is a pack of information that goes with that prize.  Thank you!!

Seniors, please come to the front office TODAY to pick up your senior collage.

As many students know, the yearbooks will be distributed TODAY.  This year, The Muse is teaming up, and we will be selling The Muse magazine in the cafeteria alongside the yearbooks.  Look for our table on the east side of the cafeteria, near the office.  If you've forgotten to pick up a Muse from Mr. Miles, this is a great opportunity to get it when you get your yearbook-- two publications that will help you remember this very important year.  
  • Yearbooks will be distributed today from 2:20 to 3:30 p.m.  No books will be distributed before 2:20.
  • Seniors: You will pick up your books on the south side of the cafeteria.
  • All other students will get their books on the north side of the cafeteria.
  • You must show your photo ID or an Infinite Campus printout with your photo to pick up your yearbook.
  • You may NOT pick up books for friends or siblings.
  • From Tuesday through Thursday, books will be distributed during both lunches and after school in the cafeteria.
  • Yearbooks must be picked up by Thursday, May 15 in order to get books cleared before final exams.
  • Additional signing page inserts will be on sale for $1. Eight blank pages for a buck.
  • To check whether you ordered a yearbook, check your Infinite Campus account or the Bookkeeper’s Corner on the AHS website for a list.
  • There will be a limited number of yearbooks for sale on a first-come, first-served basis. Cost is $80, cash or check payable to AHS.


Congratulations to the girls tennis team who made school history on Saturday by placing third in state.  Tate Schroeder won first place in #1 singles.  Laura Wilms and Bridgett O’Brien placed first in #3 doubles.  Number one doubles, #2 doubles, and #4 doubles all finished fourth in state.  Please congratulate the team for their awesome support and participation in setting a new school record.  

Congratulations to the boys swimming and diving team for placing third in the Centennial League Championship Meet this weekend.  Eleven swimmers and two divers have now qualified for the State Meet in Thornton this Friday and Saturday.  Come out and support your boys swimming and diving team as they look to finish out the season strong! 

Last Friday under the lights of LPS stadium, your ABK Varsity girls soccer team beat a tough team from Monarch High School 1-0 to advance to the Elite Eight in the State Playoffs! Paige Husa's goal hit the back of the net with 5 minutes left in a 0-0 game to advance the Warriors to Victory. The girls face Pine Creek next on Tuesday night at District 20 Stadium in Colorado Springs at 6:30. GO ABK!!!!

Last Friday night at LPS Stadium, your Arapahoe girls’ lacrosse team took care of business on their road to the State Championship.  The Warriors defeated Mullen by a decisive score of 14-6.  The offense maintained control of the ball for the majority of the game, while the defense prevented the Mustangs from mounting an effective attack.  Congratulations Warriors for your great victory in Round 2 of the playoffs!  Stay tuned for details for their next game in Round three, which will be played sometime in the middle of this week.  Go Arapahoe!

The boys Varsity lacrosse team came from behind for a thrilling overtime victory over Mountain Vista on Saturday in the Quarterfinal Round of the State Championships playoffs.  The Warriors were down by seven goals in the third quarter before turning it on with nine goals in the third and fourth quarters.  Brian Wilson put in a goal with seven seconds left in the game on a feed from Zach Runberg to tie it up and put the game into overtime.  Austin Shindoll then followed up with a spectacular behind the back goal to win the game.  But the true stars of the game were our wonderful fans who showed up and loudly urged us on to victory!  We invite all Warrior fans to wear their black and come out and support our boys on Wednesday night as they take on Regis Jesuit in the Semifinals at All City Stadium at South High School in Denver.  Game time to be announced.

All girls interested in playing softball in the fall, please plan on attending a short meeting on Wednesday, May 14th at 2:30 in Room S1. See Coach Krueger if you have any questions.

For further details on any announcements see the Arapahoe web site. 
Warriors always take care of one another.
