Eagles and Eagle Parents,

Happy Holiday Season! 

As we wind down this semester, there are several reminders.

Tutoring is offered by classroom teachers several times a week and additional tutoring is offered Monday through Thursday in the LRC.  If we can help in any way with tutoring assistance, we will be glad to do so.  We encourage you to check grades on Frontrunner and not to wait until the last week of the six weeks.

Seniors, please, please, please look into all of our scholarship opportunities!  Procrastination is not your friend!  I talk with friends at the college levels who say often scholarships decisions are made based on very few applicants.  Apply!
 
Our auditorium will be finished in the next six weeks.  The new auditorium, includes a sound booth, much improved wheelchair access, storage, and a host of other theater improvements.  We have our fingers crossed that it will be finished in time for the 2014-15 Musical.  The musical is titled Urinetown.  Although the name of this musical may raise an eyebrow, I have been told by many that it is a very enjoyable production with quite a deep message.  A cast of 60+ Abilene High theater students will, no doubt, make it a hit!  You won’t want to miss it.

 AHS has had quite a successful Fall.  I would list the many academic, philanthropic, fine-arts, CTE and athletic accomplishments and activities, but I would inevitably miss someone!  Suffice it to say, the Abilene High School Faculty and Community are both EXTREMELY PROUD of our Eagles.  JOBS WELL DONE!

Finals have been reinstated and the schedule can be found on our website for the week of January 12-15.  Teachers will be working with students on how to prepare for a cumulative test.  There are excellent websites available for tips on test taking.  We encourage parents to get involved and help this truly be a positive learning experience. 

The Abilene High School Faculty is here to serve, encourage, and promote our students and families.  If there is anything that we can do to help this be a better school year, please do not hesitate to ask.

We wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  We look forward to seeing our students back on January 5, 2015 ready to tackle finals and the second semester.
