General Announcements

Warriors, today during this class, your teachers will be handing out a few gifts. The key chain is a gift from TSA. Ben Chisholm, President of TSA worked tirelessly to create all 2500 of these key chains by hand. The bracelets are a gift from the Arapahoe administration to serve as a reminder to continue taking care of one another. The card defines what each letter of the word "Strong" represents as defined by students and staff at Arapahoe. You are all appreciated.  Finish the year strong! 

After months of planning, the construction of our new library has begun. Crews have been working all night every night this week demo'ing the interior walls.  Early next week, we will be removing the black paper from the windows so that we can all watch the progress as they transform the space into our new library. The new library will open at the beginning of next school year. 

Congratulations to the chorus of Fiddler on the Roof for being nominated for a Bobby G Award as well as Ms. Parmenter and Mr.Funk for their nominations for Outstanding Musical Direction!
