Parents,

We wrapped up another great week in Colt Country, although a little on the wet and cold side. Your child should have received their report card on Wednesday. If they did not, please let me know, so we can make sure you get a copy.

I want to thank everyone that came out to Colt Trail Drive last night. It was a huge turnout and is just the first step that many students take in becoming part of the COLTS Family!!!

 Testing News

What is this thing called the TSI and do I have to take it?

The purpose of the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSI) is to measure a student’s readiness for college-level course work. The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Program is mandated by state law and requires all students attending a public institution of higher education to prove they are ready to take entry-level college courses which require reading, writing and math skills.  The test is computer-based and must be administered in a proctored environment

AHS is offering the TSI test to Seniors. We also have tutoring opportunities in E200 during Plus. Students should see their counselor with questions regarding signing up to take this test.

Principal’s Message January 10, 2020 TRADUCCIÓN EN ESPAÑOL DISPONIBLE:

January 10, 2020

Parents,

Happy New Year! Looking back at 2019, what an amazing first semester we had at AHS: sports victories, inspiring concerts, academic successes, and the opportunity to embrace COLTS family values! I could not be prouder of our students and faculty, but we won’t rest on our former achievements. One of the goals of Arlington High school is constant improvement.
The break gave me a chance to regroup, relax, and read. I came across this quote by Melody Beattie, “The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.” Edith Lovejoy Pierce added, “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter” begins today. These two quotes inspired me because I see the multitude of opportunities available to our students and the chance to help them set goals for their futures! Let’s work together fill the pages of our books with commitment, selflessness and improvement to make our second semester even better than the first.
