General Announcements

Good morning Warriors!  This is Ms. Levi and today I want to talk to you about a very important tradition at Arapahoe in which you’ll be partaking this week:  nominating members of your class for Homecoming Royalty court. 

Homecoming is the tradition of inviting alumni to return to their school.  Upon their return, we show these former students as well as teachers, parents, staff, and community members what Arapahoe High School represents.  Your Homecoming royalty should represent this ideal.  Consider, as you nominate, students who embody the Warrior spirit, who are academically-minded, who are giving, who take care of others.  Ask yourself what, to you, it means to be a Warrior.

I was honored by my class years ago to be a member of the royalty court.  I still remember the people who were elected along with me as we were the people not just representing our class that year at such events as the bonfire, football and parade, but also representing our class in memory and yearbooks for all the years to come.

This year marks the 51st anniversary of Arapahoe High School.  I challenge you this week, as you nominate your classmates, to contribute thoughtfully to this time-honored tradition.  Look for the links to the Homecoming nominations form on the Arapahoe website.
What better way to celebrate our first week of school than to come to the Back to School dance!  Doors open at 8:00 p.m. this Friday, August 22, for our annual dance in the cafeteria.  The cost is $5, and you must bring your student ID.  Arapahoe students only.  See you there!

Hey Warriors! It's that time of year again, and Monday, September 8th, we'll be kicking off homecoming week with the talent show and crowning your Homecoming royalty. Make sure to get your nominations in starting TODAY!  Look for the links on the Arapahoe website.

Welcome Warriors! Time to get involved in AHS activities. Are you interested in joining the Drama Club?  There will be a meeting for all grades today after school in the auditorium. See Mr. Ahern in Room E-15 with any questions.

How do you define Muse? 
A.   A Greek goddess of inspiration?

The MUSE is Arapahoe’s only magazine dedicated entirely to the creative arts, created entirely by students.  If you are interested in being part of an amazing team who will build this year’s MUSE magazine from scratch, mark your calendar for next WEDNESDAY after school in Room C-17 for our first meeting.  This meeting is especially important, as we’ll be talking about leadership positions.
