General Announcements

Reminder, on Friday we will have guest speakers in the Forum each period who will share their experiences as military veterans. Everyone is encouraged and welcomed to come to the Forum during their off periods to hear their amazing stories.

Why Toys for Tots?  As Charles Dickens once said, “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”  The Arapahoe community is called to help lighten the burden for many families this holiday season by helping with the 15th Annual Toys for Tots!  AHS has adopted Garden Place Academy and the Denver Indian Center, with our goal to collect 1,000 new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 3-12.  For more information on how you can participate, please stop by the Attendance Office. 

It's Winter Guard Time!  If any Warriors are interested in being a member of the award winning Arapahoe Winter Guard but you missed the informational meeting on Monday, November 7th, please let Mr. Funk know.  We will get you the information you need regarding participation and tryouts.  Happy Spinning and Dancing!

There is a meeting after school today for current members of National Honor Society.  Members, please join us in the Forum at 2:25 tomorrow for a quick meeting to learn about important volunteer opportunities.   For students who have recently applied for membership in NHS, letters will be sent to your home next week informing you of your status.

 Arapahoe Warriors!  Thank you very much for your generous contributions to the Fall Food Drive.  Over the past two weeks we've collected 7,863 cans and $706 to donate to the Field Elementary Food Bank.  Thank you very much for all your efforts and contributions.  A huge shout out to Ms. Parmenter, the Concert Choir, Orchestra, Choralettes, Women's Choir, Men's Choir and Arapahoe Singers for all your hard work in collecting thousands of cans. 
  Thank you to the following TRIBE classes, as they collected the largest amount of cans and cash for their grade level:  9th Grade: Mr. Jansen,  10th grade: Mr. Fisch,  
11th grade: Mrs. Gillespie, and 12th grade: Mr. Eggelston.   Next TRIBE those classes will be treated to root beer floats!
