We just finished up the 4th week of school. Progress reports went home on Wednesday with your child. If you did not receive one, please feel free to contact us to receive an additional copy.
Reminder about cell phones:
As many of you know Arlington High School is a BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) campus. We believe that the benefits of students having easy access to technology far out weight the hindrances. However, we do contend that students should not have their technology out during class time, unless given permission from his/her teacher. This includes the times when a student is in the hall during class (i.e. using the restroom, seeing the nurse, seeing an AP). Announcements have been made all week to inform students that electronics are not permitted during class time in the hallways. Use of technology during passing periods and lunch is permitted. If electronics are seen at inappropriate times, they will be confiscated and the usual $15 fee will be assessed. Thank you for your help in reminding your child of this policy.
Freshman Parents please read:
The 9th grade counselors will be starting their parent conferences within the next 2 weeks. Every first year ninth grade student is required by the new Texas House Bill 5 law to meet with their counselor at some time during their ninth grade year. Please visit the AHS counselor web page at the following link http://www.aisd.net/aisd/arlington/Departments/Counselors/CounselingInformation/tabid/6940/Default.aspx to sign up for your appointment time. Make sure to sign up under the correct counselor for your student and use your student's name when making the appointment. These appointments are for the first time ninth graders only. There will be more appointments offered in the spring semester as well.
Colts are participating and winning!
On Thursday, August 21st the Arlington High School Colt Football Program kicked off the season with our Annual Dinner and 2014 Big Colts/Little Colts Presentation! The Big Colts/Little Colts program is a mentoring program between the Varsity Football players & boys in the 4th-6th grade that attend schools that feed into Arlington High.
We are in the 6th year for this program and we are very proud of our Varsity Players for taking ownership of this wonderful opportunity! We had over 50 Little Colts to sign up for this year’s program! And what is even more spectacular is that this year some of our very first Little Colts are now Big Colts! Such an honor to see these Young Men carry on the Tradition!
