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.


14 and 4!!! That's the record so far for your Arapahoe Girls Varsity basketball team!! They won their game against Eaglecrest Friday night 67-31!  Complete team effort with nine players scoring and ten players rebounding. Double Digit scorers were Jennah Knafelc (17), Jordyn Vega (12) and Macy Ziegler (11) followed by Katie Crowley (8) and Madi Matthews (7).  Elli Kearby lead rebounds with (7). Steals were led by Macy Ziegler and Madi Matthews.  Katie Crowley and Macy Ziegler were a 100% on free throws.  Deflection by Ali Sheehan and strong defense by Annabelle Brewer, Kat Abt and Elli Kearby under the basket helped keep Eaglecrest to low scoring.
