Calling all interested students.  The Wind River Reservation Trip is approaching.   Arapahoe High School has been affiliated with the Arapaho Tribe since 1992. Every two years, representatives from the Arapaho Tribal Nation come to Arapahoe High School to continue an ongoing cultural exchange and further our friendship. In 2013, a group of Arapahoe High School students and staff visited the Wind River Reservation in Riverton, Wyoming to continue building the relationship. As part of our class gift, the Class of 2015 has decided to continue the tradition of cultural exchange by sponsoring a group of students and staff to return, once again, to Riverton.  If you are interested in applying to be a part of this journey then please complete the online application. The application will be available on the AHS website starting February 9th. All students are invited to apply.
