Friday, May 2nd is the day across the state when students and teachers are encouraged to wear college t-shirts.

Shane Dawson (senior) is working on a project to get ALL students at AHS involved in community service. He has organized a Lip Dub that will take place at AHS on May 16. His organization, leadership and initiative have been impressive. See the message he sent to our teachers and check out the link below!
To All Teachers

 We just want to remind you that you need to sign up your 7th period class for the Lip Dub video by the end of the month! Even if you don’t have any grand, specific thing to do in the Lip Dub, we need a list of students in your class who are NOT participating in other groups or organizations. It is important that every student at the school is involved in some way in the video, so every student needs to be signed up. You can now sign up at [ ], which is accessible anywhere. Classes that do not have any major, specific plan can type "Crowd scene" into the "Activity to be performed" box. Those classes will be directed to a location on the route that features large numbers of classes together in a large space (i.e., auditorium, parking lot, etc.) Thanks a ton for your participation. Here’s to making May 16 a day for making AHS history!

If you have questions, email them directly to [ ]

Bond Information:
Under "Documents" on the left  are the updated individual campus sheets of bond projects. Information about district wide projects is also posted. For more information, go to

As we focus on Continuous Improvement, we need your feedback! The 2nd  Parent Satisfaction Survey is now available. It can be accessed online at [ ]

The AISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to place a $663.1 million bond package on the May 10 ballot. Information is listed below. More information can be found at

smileyCongrats to our band. They won "Sweepstakes" at the UIL competition this past week!

smileyThe 16 students listed below took the 2013 PSAT in October and met the requirements to enter the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program. These high performers have shown outstanding academic potential. Out of 1.5 million entrants, each of these students is among the 50,000 highest-scoring participants who will be recognized the fall of their senior year. Of the 50,000 high scorers nationwide, about 16,000 will be named National Merit Semifinalists, and approximately 34,000 others will be named National Merit Commended Scholars.
What a great day to be a Colt! Please congratulate these 16 outstanding students:

smileyJr. Meter Madness is a Huge Success for Arlington
Dallas Texas April 15 2014

AHS Jr. Meter Madness student competitors practiced feverishly over the last couple weeks and their hard work paid off.  Tyler Brown won first and Lindsey Hada won second place in the fast-paced Jr. Meter Madness contest at the largest regional water conference in the U.S.

The Jr. Meter Madness contest pits competitors against the clock to assemble a water meter from a bucket of parts. Penalties are applied if he meter does not register the flow of water or if the meter leaks water.

Tyler B., Lindsey H., Dashia R., Carter T., Jason S., and Ian S. proudly represented Arlington at this competition. The behavior and professionalism of our students can not be overstated. They far exceeded any expectations I had for them.

Special thanks to Tony Young and Meagan Fendley for inspiring our students and providing the best looking shirts for the competition.  

smileyMonika Y. won the Dell Scholarship -  this means that she will receive $20,000 to complete her higher education over the course of six years. This program, however, is much more than just a cash handout- the Scholars Program will provide students with “technology, a private scholar networking community, resources, and mentoring to ensure they have the support they need to achieve their college degrees Monika will be attending UTA this fall prusing a degree in Biology.

smileyRotary Club 30th Annual Outstanding Student Recognition Banquet at TCC. Each high school selected 10 seniors to recognize. The AHS Outstanding Students were:
Georgia B.
Colton F.
Rabia H.
Grant H.
Hannah H.
Jacob N.
Erica La.
Jackson P.
Rebekah T.
Luis Z.

L. Joeckel donates $125,000.00! to AHS!

heartAlumni News From Principal Jennifer Young:

I always tell people that AHS is a great school with outstanding students. I love it when our graduates do big things and represent us so well.

Luke Joeckel (Class of 2010) had his football jersey retired at an AHS pep rally this fall. Most of you know that Luke played football at Texas A&M, and last year he was the #2 pick in the NFL draft. He is currently playing football for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Recently, Luke donated $125,000 to AHS. $50,000 is dedicated for scholarships. Some of the money has been used to purchase lockers for the fieldhouse. The rest of the money is to be used to help our school and the student body.

When I last spoke to Luke he said that "AHS played a big role in helping me become the person I am today. I am so happy to have the opportunity to give back!"
