Monday News Items

As promised, 2 items for your Monday morning:

  1. Hello 8th Grade Parents!!  The date for the 8th Grade Dance has been set for Saturday April 28th from 5:30-8 pm. Set-up for the dance will take place Friday April 27th from 4 pm until complete.  We would love to have as many parents involved as possible in order to make this a wonderful celebration for our 8th grade children.  Many hands make for light work!  Our plan is to make this a simple, fun evening for our children where they can eat a delicious meal and just have fun hanging out together. It is our hope that moving the dance back to Saturday evening will enable more parents to be involved in the dance preparations on Friday night and will permit all 8th grade parents to spend time with their children prior to the dance on Saturday! We will meet at Timberwood Grill this Friday, March 2nd from 4-6pm to get some input and make some decisions on theme/decorations/food/gift etc.  All 8th grade parents are welcome!!  PLEASE drop by to see how you can help us make the dance a success for our 8th graders. If you cannot attend but wish to help please email Lynette Sanford at or Erin Swansiger at Many thanks!!

2. On behalf of the student body and myself, I would like to thanks the Sutherland teachers and staff, the AHS Honor Society students, and our parents, who together made the 24th annual carnival a success! We greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts to ensure a memorable night of fun for all.  Thank you. Gayle Rainey, Carnival Chairperson
