Parents,

What an amazing week! In case you didn’t know, this week was a Code Green Week. We started every morning with a treat for students/faculty, teachers' doors were decorated, students and staff had to find their name on a horse cutout and exchange it for a COLTS Family t-shirt. We ended the week with a huge Game Show, and many more celebrations for our students and faculty.  We don’t do Code Green every year, but when we do, it’s amazing!!!  A big thanks to the faculty committee and volunteers that helped us throughout the week.

Report cards went home with students today. If you did not receive a copy, please let me know.

Freshmen Parents

We have many freshmen going off campus during the first lunch period. This lunch is predominantly for freshmen. We do this so we can keep freshmen students on campus during A lunch.

This week we warned freshmen that have A lunch, starting next week if they come back on campus with outside food that it will not be allowed on campus. If you would like to drop off food for your child, you may do so, but must go through the main office off of Park Row.

Again, this is a safety issue for our freshmen, if you have any questions, please let me know.

Open House

Open House will be March 2 in the cafeteria. The PTA meeting will take place at 6:00, with an opportunity to meet with the teachers to follow until 7:30 PM. This will be a meet and greet style in the cafeteria. Also, at the PTA meeting we will be hearing from our Drug Interventionists. She will be sharing information regarding vaping. I know that this message is timely for many of us, and encourage you to attend.

Parents,

Cold and wet weather for the Colts this week, but that doesn’t slow down our students.  Boys and Girls soccer, golf, tennis, baseball and softball are heading into their district play. Boys and Girls basketball were lucky to do their playing indoors! These athletes demonstrate COLTS Family TOUGHNESS!

Last week, AHS PTA honored twelve students at the PTA’s Student Achievement Breakfast. Awards were presented to the nominated students. This gives the teachers the opportunity to say, “THANK YOU” to a very deserving student who makes teaching a privilege.

Colt Football recruits are Jerry Jones Jr. to Navarro College, Keavante McGowen to Northwestern Oklahoma State University, Alex Reeder and Caleb Tobias both going to Southeastern Oklahoma State University and Pierce Salyer to Hardin Simmons. Early graduates, Jahari Rogers committed to Florida and Charles Brown went to Montana State.  For basketball, Jayden Sloan is going to Southeastern Oklahoma State University. We are proud of these student athletes!

State of Texas 2018–19 School Report Card for Arlington High school:

At the link below, you will find a copy of the State of Texas 2018–19 School Report Card for our school. This is a report required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.

State law requires that the School Report Card display information about the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.

The School Report Cards can be found online at  https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/cgi/sas/broker?_service=marykay&_program=perfrept.perfmast.sas&cyr=2019&level=campus&search=campname&namenum=arlington+h+s&campus=220901001&_debug=0&prgopt=2019%2Fsrc%2Fsrc.sas

A more complete report about our school, the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR), is available by contacting my office or can be accessed online at https://tea.texas.gov/Student_Testing_and_Accountability/Accountability/State_Accountability/Performance_Reporting/Texas_Academic_Performance_Reports

Please contact me if you have any questions concerning this report card. Thank you for your continued support of our school.

Message from Cheer
AHS Cheer hosted Mr. Colt yesterday. Guys performed a lip sync, dressed in formal and fun wear, and answered questions. I was astounded by the CLASS shown by our students! Mr. Colt was Pierce Salyer, and Runner-Up was A.J. Lopez. Taking a close third place was Jason Hansen. Mr. Heart Throb was Charlie McLaughlin and Mr. Congeniality was Ken Perry. What a fun COLTS Family evening!
