All students registering for A.P. Literature and Composition next year,  need to pick up their summer reading packets from Ms. L Eclair's desk in the Language Arts office. The assignment is also available on her website.

Congratulations to our 2017 Mr. Arapahoe winner, Max Wilson! Thank you to all of our participants and individual competition winners. Mrs. Abner and Mrs. McNiff are very grateful to our sophomore student council students, the AHS tech crew and anyone else who helped with the event. Congrats, Max! 

Important reminder to everyone attending after prom this year. The school dress code will be strictly enforced and you are not allowed to wear any items of clothing that are deemed inappropriate by Arapahoe staff and administration (for example, t-shirts with inappropriate language/sayings on them). You will be told to change, or to cover up with a t-shirt provided by AHS or to leave after prom all together if found in violation of the school dress code. Thank you for your cooperation.

Attention members of National Honor Society...  
Our last meeting of the year is happening today after school in the forum.  At this meeting, senior members can leave after a couple of quick announcements, and then juniors will hold elections for next year's officers.
