It's been a busy, short week at the Nest this week, with freshman and sophomores exploring the 416 Fire burn scar, seniors off to Chaco Canyon and freshmen to the ropes course in Bayfield. We are grateful for the community partnerships and parent support that make it possible for us to use the great outdoors as our classroom so frequently!
We hope that our students enjoy
a day off tomorrow while our staff has a
Professional Development Day
. You may be curious to know what happens at "PD Days." This year, our entire staff is engaged in what we're calling the
2020 Vision Project
, where each staff member has taken on research that helps them answer the core question, "
How might I use my role/position at AHS to propel us toward our collective vision of being an innovative leader among public schools?
We'll be up at Fort Lewis College tomorrow, diving into cutting-edge educational research, collaborating to share ideas and honing our craft.
there will be no morning Hub Bus from DHS to AHS on Monday, as Durango 9R schools are not in session but we are.
Please be sure to arrange alternative transportation.
Students will learn about the choices available for
Osprey Week 2020
on Wednesday at our NEST Meeting and we'll send out a letter with course descriptions that same day. Osprey Week takes place March 9-13 and our teachers are putting together a wide range of very cool opportunities!
Next Friday, November 1 from 7:30 to 9:00,
AHS Student Council
Ospreys on Ice
, a fun evening of ice skating at Chapman Hill, open to all. For thosee who show up with their AHS Student ID in hand, admission is just $6 and covers the cost of rental skates. There will be a prize drawing for all students who attend, with gift cards from generous local businesses. Get there early to make sure you get skates--or better yet, bring your own if you have them!
Enjoy the long weekend and thanks for all you do to help the Ospreys soar!
