Parent Association News and Updates
The Parent Association is excited to announce its first-ever Spring plant and flower sale. We are using Flower Power Fundraising to bring this new fundraising event to AHS. Please check your student's Friday Folder for more information and a catalogue.

You may also view the Flower Power catalog and shop at our AHS Parents Association online store using the link below.



Please remember that participation in PA fundraisers is always welcome, but never mandatory. We raise funds to support special events for our school community including Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, Back-to-School gifts for students, and the Halloween Spooktacular. We also support social events such as the International Feast. We look forward to re-introducing many of these fun annual traditions in the coming months, and appreciate your support.

Please note that PA fundraisers are never used to support the instructional program at Academy Hill.
