Greetings Osprey Community,
As the 2015-16 school year draws to a close, we are extremely grateful for all the dedicated students, families, teachers, staff, board members and community supporters who have helped us provide young people with educational opportunities that can be truly transformative. The AHS Class of 2015 has achieved 100% acceptance into college and earned approximately 3.5 million in scholarship dollars. Our rising sophomores, juniors and seniors have successfully completed tPOLs, sharing with us poignant reflections on the value of their Animas education, and we are excited to welcome the Class of 2019 in August. Animas High School is thriving, manifesting the vision our founders had into a reality that changes lives.
Summer Activities and Events
While we'll all take some time away from the Nest over the summer, we'll still be in touch; look for our newsletter to come out every few weeks, and stay tuned for information about
Summer Osprey Events
for students and families in July and August. Possible gatherings include an Animas River trip, a family barbecue, hiking Animas Mountain, a campus beautification day and more. If you would like to help us with these events or have other ideas, please contact Development Director
. Summer Osprey Events are a great opportunity for new families to meet current students and families, as well as alumni, and we look forward to connecting over the summer months.
will be mailed out next week, and rising juniors and seniors will receive emails from Registrar
by the end of June to help determine
class schedules for next academic year
. We will assign courses to 9th and 10th graders during Student Orientation; please look for a letter coming your way in August that will outline the curricular choices available in the 9th and 10th grades. If you have questions over the summer, Laurel Rodd will staff the Main Office on Monday and Wednesday mornings, and Head of School Sean Woytek and Assistant Head of School Libby Cowles will both be available as well.
Finally, please take the opportunity to share your love and appreciation for outgoing Head of School Jake Lauer by Monday, June 1st. We are putting together a book for him, and you can contribute by emailing
or stopping by to sign in person before 1:00 on Monday.
We are deeply grateful to Jake for his extraordinary dedication to AHS since its very inception and he will be sorely missed.
We hope you all have a restful, safe, fun summer and, as always, thanks for all you do to help the Ospreys soar!
