Message From The Principal


October 1, 2014

Eagles and Eagle Parents,

As we wrap up this first six weeks we hope that the school year’s beginning has been a positive one.  Let’s celebrate the individual successes and make plans to tackle the second six weeks.

Abilene High kicked off the E-Power Campaign today and introduced new initiatives.  E-Power is AHS’ version of the Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) that has been adopted by our district.  The E-Power Committee is made up of faculty members and students who plan activities for the year.  E-Power targets the strength in being:

P – Positive         O – Organized      W – Willing to Succeed    E– an Encourager of Excellence    R – Respectful

The committee has decided to focus on three main goals this year.  1) Recognize students in a number of ways for individual and group achievement.  2) Encourage students to be involved in extra-curricular activities.  3) Promote the five characteristics that make up the POWER in E-Power.

You will be receiving information soon about an activity that will be hosted following the end of the first semester for students who meet the following criteria:

1)      Passing all classes at the end of the second and third six weeks.

2)      Three of fewer absences from October 6, 2014 to January 16, 2015.

3)      No referrals to the office.

The activity includes an extended lunch off campus at the Abilene Zoo with activities in the park and tours of the zoo.  Eagles, we would love nothing more than to take every student on our campus!  Let’s reach these goals for the second and third six weeks.  Please let us know if we can do anything to help you academically.  Tutoring and individual assistance is available. 

Looking forward to cooler temperatures and fall activities,

Jennifer Raney
