Fundraising Committee Meeting is Monday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 and the
Board of Directors Meeting is Wednesday, 5:30 to 7:30, both at AHS and open to all. The Board will also have a retreat the following Sunday, January 20, 10:00am to 2:00pm at the R Space in downtown Durango.
Enjoy the weekend and thanks for all you do to help the Ospreys soar!
Our seniors have embarked upon the research phase of
Senior Project. For the next two months, they will work on their Senior Theses, crafting a college-level 10-20 page paper about a topic they've chosen to explore. Once they've completed their theses, they will defend them in TED-talk style presentations. Finally, at the end of the semester, they will turn theory into practice, developing and implementing action projects connected to their research findings.
Throughout the semester, we'll highlight a few individual Senior Projects along the way--stay tuned!
