Colts are participating and winning!
The Arlington High Robotics team won their first tournament of the school year. By taking first place in the Lake Highlands Skyrise Tournament in Dallas they qualified for regional's in February. Timothy Y., Benjamin M., Amy R., Hudson F. and DeClan Q.. The two robot designers, Vivian N. and Megan N., were not at the competition due to an AcDec competition but they were vital to the team. Sponsor is Miquel Picart.

This year AHS has four All State Orchestra Students!!! Each year, hundreds of high school musicians audition for a spot in one of the All State groups. Being selected to one of these groups is the highest honor given to a high school musician in the state of Texas! This year, our All State Orchestra Students are:
Christopher L. (Viola)
Hannah P. (Viola)
Benjamin L. (Viola)
Lyric F. (Bass)
What's even better is that all four of these students made the top orchestra, the All State Symphony!
Congrats to these talented Colts!!
The AHS band received a Division One Rating!!! They advanced to the Area Marching. Great job, AHS Band!
