General Announcements
As we continue to celebrate and honor our veterans this week, be sure to take a moment today to stop by the Military Heritage Board by the Security Office and see all of our Arapahoe friends and relatives who have served or are currently serving in our Armed Forces. 

On Wednesday, the Post Grad Center will host Fort Hays State University and Calvin College.  Please sign up in Naviance.

Toys for Tots: Today's giving quote for the day “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others,”  Booker T. Washington    It’s not too early to start thinking of others for the holiday season!  AHS has adopted Garden Place Academy and the Denver Indian Center for the 15th Annual Toys for Tots. We need to collect 1,000 new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 3-12.  Please, no weapons or toys that require batteries!  Please bring all your donations to the festively decorated Attendance Office, thank you!

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 tomorrow 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.

Congratulations to our Speech and Debate team, for their efforts this past weekend at the Cherry Creek Classic Tournament.  Arapahoe walked away with 3rd in poetry and 5th in International Extemp! We also wish good luck to our competitors for the Demon Invitational Tournament at Golden High School this weekend!"
