Trimester 3 grades available online now

Go to AHA's NetClassroom and log on with your ID and password. If you've forgotten your ID or password, you can use the forgotten password page to have it emailed to the email address we have in your record. If this does not work for you or you have problems logging on or seeing grades, you can email netclassroom.support@ahastars.org for assistance. Make sure to include your full name, your student's name and the email address you used on the forgotten password page. It's a good idea to print, download or otherwise save a copy of the Trimester 3 grades if you'd like to do any comparisons to other marking term grades. AHA will be transitioning to a new grading software in the fall and this year's grades will no longer be available online.

Celebration Day awards online

AHA students, faculty and staff were recognized for various awards on May 31st during the 2019 Celebration Day ceremony. These awards include the Class of 2019 top ten academically, the top ranking student in each of the other classes, faculty-chosen academic subject-area awards, athletic and activity awards, and prestigious yearly awarded honors to selected staff, faculty and students. This year's senior class was awarded $16.7 million in scholarship dollars! They have accepted $5.1 million to be used at the colleges in which they have chosen to enroll. See full list of awardees here. Congratulations STARS!

Graduation pictures

Senior Parents: Congratulations on the recent graduation of your senior!  Pictures from graduation will be available from Lifetouch in 7-10 days online here. You can access the website and order any pictures you want directly from Lifetouch. If you have questions regarding ordering pictures, please call 1-800-505-9496 for assistance. Please note that pictures are currently not on the site but should be up by June 15, 2019.  

Parent Campaign Week

An energetic group of parents, staff and faculty are making calls to parents this week to encourage their support for the campaign. To date, current parents have raised over $1.4 million toward our goal of $10.5 million. Many of the gifts from parents are multi-year pledges and over 40 gifts of $10,000 or more. If enough funds are raised, we will be able to begin construction on a new state-of-the-art STEM wing on the 3rd floor of the Convocation Center this fall and have current students in the new area by the holidays. But, we can’t do this without your help. Please answer the call and support the campaign at a level that is consistent with your commitment to the school and financial ability. 

Registration for 2018-19 Athletics and Activities will open online on July 1st 

Parents can begin registering students for fall sports and activities on July 1st by going our website and looking for the link in the Sports & Activities drop down menu. The Fall Sports Kickoff is Monday, August 5th at 7 pm and most fall sports begin on Monday, August 12th. Student athletes need an updated physical every 3 years and an updated concussion baseline test every 2 years. AHA offers concussion testing onsite in August - see website for details.
