Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

Semester 2

Semester Two marks the mid-point of the school year. It is important as a student to reflect upon the learning and growth of semester one and look at what went well and things that could be different as we endeavor to support our best personal effort each day. I was impressed with the dedication and diligence of many students in completing their first semester courses. Often we start with good intentions to remain current with our studies but over time find ourselves falling behind. I would encourage students to develop the habits of mind and behavior that allows them to attend school consistently and prioritize the complexities of life in a manner that gives school sufficient focus so that students are achieving their personal best.
I want to thank the members of our Parent Association and School Council. The work that is done by this group certainly makes a significant difference in the experiences we are able to offer students. This group is always looking for members to full specific duties as well as members at large. Please if you can find an hour of your time once a month to attend these meetings your efforts will be well greatly appreciated and will be reflected in valuable experiences being provided for students. The next meeting is Wednesday March 18, 2020 at 6:00 pm.
I am looking forward to our continued work together on behalf of our students. I appreciate the support our community continues to provide for the staff of Alternative High School. Should you have comments or questions please do not hesitate to connect with the school.
Dr. Don Barbor Principal Alternative High School/AARC
