Dear Osprey Community,
|Nathan Harmon captivating the crowd at this week's NEST Meeting
What amazing presentations we had this week from
! Many thanks to
Dr. Doug Miller
for sponsoring Harmon's visit to our area, where he spoke at fourteen schools, sharing his powerful story of overcoming high-risk, harmful behaviors that led to a drunk driving accident and incarceration. Many students and staff felt that Harmon was the most impactful speaker we've ever had at AHS. We also appreciate the
for sending Fincken and Mishler to Durango. Their spot-on performances as Thomas Edison and Teddy Roosevelt make history come alive and we love having visits from Chautauquan scholars each year.
We hope to see you at the
tomorrow, 5:30 to 7:00 at Rotary Park, where Sean will deliver his annual State of the School Address, followed by live music from the student band

Our Mountain Biking Team is headed up to Nathrop for the Chalk Creek Stampede this weekend. Team co-captains Alma Wolf and Riley Amos did a great job talking about our team and how awesome the Durango mountain biking community is on the radio earlier this week alongside Humanities teacher/coach Ashley Carruth; have a listen
. As the
reported in this
in today's paper, the AHS team is having a strong season; they are in third place for Division 2 of the
Colorado High School Cycling League
s' south conference, with Riley currently in the top spot for varsity boys. We are really excited that the State Championships for the High School League will be in Durango this year, October 20-21, bringing hundreds of high school riders and their families to town. It takes a bunch of volunteer support to run a race this size, and we want to encourage our families to sign up
to help out. Best of luck to all our riders this weekend!
Have a great weekend and thanks for all you do to help the Ospreys soar!
