Did you order a yearbook?  The last day to order is THIS Wednesday.  Check the list by the bookkeeper's office to see if you ordered one, or check your infinite campus account.  To place an order, bring a check for $67 to the main office or go online and pay with a credit card.  Don't miss out.  Order one today!

Hey Warriors!  Help support speech and debate  by buying a candy cane during 1st or 2nd lunch in the cafeteria this week​. You can either keep it for yourself or give it to a friend.

Attention all Students!  Be sure to wear your black and gold this Wednesday for the Arapahoe Thank You Project.  After school, all available students will meet in the cafeteria and head to the practice field in order to form the word ARAPHOE THANKS YOU and get your picture taken.  This picture, along with a message of thanks, will be sent to local community members, thanking them for their support last year.  Please come be part of this great event!
