General Announcements

Today is the last day to pick up a yearbook. We'll be in the cafeteria during both lunches and after school. Any books not claimed today may be sold.  If you're running out of space for people to sign your yearbook, we have inserts for sale. Eight blank pages for a dollar. Come find us in the cafeteria at lunch.  The final issue of the Arapahoe Herald for this year is available. It features 24 pages of fascinating content, including the special Senior Focus section. Get your copy today!

Attention incoming LINK leaders and A-team members:  Please join us in the large gym today at 4:00 p.m. Wear comfortable clothes.  If you cannot attend, please see one of the sponsors. 

Seniors … Please pick up your collage at the East Entrance Security Kiosk today.

Please return books you borrowed from the Post Grad Center so they are available for other students. Thank you.

Warriors, if you want registration to go smoothly be sure that you are checking both the library and bookkeeping lists.  Your registration card will be held if you have any outstanding fines.  Deadline date for the Library is tomorrow.

As you prepare for Arena Scheduling, please note that the first and second semester master schedules are posted on the main page of the AHS website. As we begin Arena on Tuesday and classes begin to close, those closed classes will be updated on the posted master schedule (strikethrough in red). As you prepare for your scheduling time, you should check the updated master schedules for which classes are closed and plan accordingly. We would recommend that you check the night before you schedule and then again 30 minutes or so before you begin scheduling. The more you can plan before you enter the Arena floor, the quicker and happier you'll be.

Do you play drums?  Are you looking to become a better musician and performer?  The Arapahoe Percussion Ensemble is hosting their audition clinics this week.  The final clinic will be Friday at 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Band Room.  You don't need any percussion experience and we will teach you!  Talk to Mr. Funk or Coach Dustin Arndt for more information.

Since we're coming to the end of the school year, we will need to collect the Connected Learners Chromebooks that we've loaned to students. If you have checked out one of our Chromebooks, you will need to bring it (and your charger) to your Language Arts final exam to turn in. If you have any questions, please see your Language Arts teacher or Mr. Fisch.

Attention students and parents . . . the school year is ending soon.  Do you have enough money in your lunch account to last until the end of the year?  Do you have a negative balance that needs to be paid?  Now is the time to watch lunch account balances and pay off any past due amounts.  As of May 4, students will not be permitted to charge.  Unsure of your balance?  Ask one of the kitchen staff or check your account at 

Lost and Found:  Please check the table in the cafeteria for clothing items and the Attendance Office for smaller items.   After tomorrow all items will be donated.​


Every race has a finish line, and for your Arapahoe Track and Field team, that line is the state meet, starting today, at JeffCo Stadium.  Twenty-seven male and female athletes will join hundreds of other competitors, all vying for the title of “state champ.”  Run like the wind, Warriors!

Tomorrow and Saturday, members of the boys Warrior Swim and Dive Team head to the Air Force Academy to represent AHS in the State meet! Thanks go out to their coaches who have worked hard to get them this far.  But they will be representing the entire AHS 2015 Boys Swim and Dive team, because this is a great team, and a great team effort.  Go Warriors!

For further details on any announcements see the Arapahoe web site.
Warriors always take care of one another.
