General Announcements

The Wind River Reservation trip application is still open and available for all students to participate. You can find the online application on the AHS Homepage. All applications for the Wind River Trip are due tomorrow.

Hey Warriors, how many of you liked forming teams for events like DECA Dodgeball?  Well, this spring during Warrior Week we are introducing, for the first time ever, the all school Table Tennis Tournament!   Anyone interested in participating needs to form a team of 4 and stop by Mrs. Lee's desk in the English office and grab a sign up packet.  Packets will be available until February 26th and there's a limited amount of teams so it’s first come first serve.  

Seniors interested in playing in the Staff vs. Senior Warrior Week basketball game must pick up an application from Mr. Brandberg in the World Languages office.  Applications are due by Wednesday, February 25.

Gooood morning!  The Muse magazine would like to thank all who submitted their work to us in the fall.  We had a record number of submissions, which made our job of selecting those that will be published much harder.  We would like to thank ALL of those students who sent us their fine work, and encourage everyone to send us more work next year.   And now, we would like to announce that we have made our decisions for the 2015 magazine!  You will find lists of accepted artists, prose writers, and poets in two places: First, in the Muse glass display case right outside the Language Arts office, and also on the TV monitors throughout the school.  In addition, all accepted artists and writers should be receiving a congratulatory note this week in your classes.  As you look at the lists of accepted writers and artists, remember that if you requested anonymity, your name will NOT be listed, but you should receive a note indicating that your work will be published in this year’s Muse.   If you wrote under a pseudonym, that name (not your own), will be the one on the list of published students.  Congratulations to all our writers and artists!  We will be celebrating you and your work further, after the magazine is published, in April.  


Arapahoe Varsity girls basketball team won their game last night against Cherry Creek bringing their season to 18 and 4, with an 8 game win streak!!  Double digit scorers were Jennah Knafelc (17). Macy Ziegler (17), and Annabelle Brewer (10). The Lady Warriors led the entire game. Great inside defense helped to shut down Creek's inside game.  The last regular season game is this Friday night against Cherokee Trail at Cherokee Trail High School. Varsity plays at 7:00 p.m. and JV plays at 5:30 p.m.  Come out and support your Winning Lady Hoops!
