Principal's Weekly 

View this newsletter in detail here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a busy week with our construction career days field trip and picture
day!  I would like to apologize for the short notice for Picture Day, but we will
be scheduling a re-take for anyone that might want one; it snuck up on us as

We have a short week coming up, and each day matters!  These 3 days are
part of our instructional calendar and are important.  Attendance is
important at the high school level; even excused absences count towards
the magic number of 18 days.  ADE requires schools to meet for 180 days
each year, and dictates that students can only miss 10% (18) of those days
and still be issued credit.  We have students every year that have
extenuating circumstances (medical, bereavement, etc.) that have kept them
out of school; however, those are the exceptions to the rule.  If you have any
questions, please contact the school, so we can answer any questions you
may have.

The November 29th Basketball game was cancelled!

The event calendar will cover the next couple of weeks, so the next
Principal's Weekly will be in DECEMBER!!! Can you believe it is almost
December!! Ha!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday, and know that we
here at AOTHS are THANKFUL for YOU!
