Hello Osprey Students and Families,

It’s time to select 2nd quarter XBlock classes, which begin next Wednesday, 10/27 and run for 6 classes, through Wednesday 12/8.

Please review the 2nd quarter XBlock class choices together this week and sign up no later than this Friday. 

Remember that off-campus XBlock classes do not return to AHS and students are released from the off-campus location. If cost of a class is a concern for your family, please reach out to christine.imming@animashighschool.com, as scholarships are available. 

View 2nd quarter XBlock class options here

Students--indicate your top 3 XBlock choices here.

XBlock grades are based on attendance and participation; both unexcused and excused absences count against attendance and students must be present for at least 70% of the time to receive credit for the course.
