Nearly all spring athletes are in full, indoor, pre-season conditioning and practices while they eagerly wait for a thaw. Cheerleading tryouts roll out at the end of the month as well.

The orchestra program continues to win unprecedented OMEA scores of Superiors or Ones. We celebrate the orchestra students and their accomplishments. This month, the band and choir programs both head to OMEA adjudicated events, and we will be certain to cheer them on as well.

Respecting the Nest is still our mantra as we work with students on navigating peer relationships. Parents, the best supervision you can provide your student is to monitor his or her actions and status on social media. Currently, this is the number one troublesome pitfall for our teens face.

Heads-up! E-cigarettes are prohibited from campus even for those students who are of age to purchase them and their products. Of bigger concern is that e-cigarettes can be used to vaporize CBD, or cannabis oil. These vapor pens are used to hide pungent marijuana odors, and thus people do not realize illegal drugs are being used as someone is “vaping.” If you have any further questions regarding this new trend among teens, please reach out to a member of the administrative team or a guidance counselor.

At the end of the month, our seniors are headed to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. They will be off campus from March 25-28th. This senior trip is an annual tradition that we are proud to host. Thank you in advance to our chaperones who accompany our seniors on this journey.

Best wishes to our Thespians who will be headed to their state thespian conference and competition at the end of March. AHS is able to boast that our Eagles are also award winning and that conference directors look forward to our participation and attendance.

Looking forward to spring,

Eagle proud,
Mrs. Kristina Dobos Buller, Principal

There were many great defensive plays, but the two that stood out the most was one catch by Hannah Reynolds on a deep fly ball to right center field & a home run robbing catch by Vilagi in left field. It was a total team effort with everyone getting to play in the Akron Racers Softball Stadium.
