AHS School Photos this Week

Budding professional photographer Maya Olivier (AHS class of 2022) will take school photos for all students this week, using the following schedule:

  • 9th grade: Tuesday (2nd period)
  • 10th grade: Thursday (2nd period)
  • 11th grade: Wednesday (4th period)
  • 12th grade: Wednesday (3rd period)

Students should be sure to come to school looking their best, with school appropriate attire in accordance with our Student and Family Handbook. We'll ask students to remove hats for photos, including beanies and caps.

Make-up photos will take place next Wednesday, 9/22.

And now, a word from Maya herself...

Hi Osprey Parents,

This year you have the awesome opportunity to order photos from me! I will be taking all of the school photos as well as getting them to you if you decide to order. All of the information that you need, including prices for various packages, is on my AHS School Photo website.

This is all a part of my LINK 2.0 Internship. So, take this amazing Animas opportunity and get your child's school photos ordered! Please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

Order forms close September 30. If you want to preview your student's photo, fill out this form. I'll email the preview to you as a watermarked JPG--please be sure include your email address in the form!

In addition, please reach out to me directly if you are interested in having me take your student's Senior Photos and we'll discuss pricing. I look forward to working with your family!

Thank you,
Maya Olivier

In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requiring schools to inspect and identify any asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM). We are pleased to announce Animas High School is an asbestos-free school.
The law further requires all schools to have an asbestos management plan. Animas High School has an asbestos management plan available for review in the main office during regular business hours. Sean Woytek is our designated asbestos program coordinator, and all inquiries regarding the asbestos plan and asbestos-related issues should be directed to Sean Woytek 970-247-2474.
Animas High School prepares all students for college and postsecondary success by creating critical thinkers and engaged citizens through an innovative, student-centered, project-based curriculum. We accomplish this through:
Rigorous academics, where all students are prepared for college success
Culture of excellence, where students are held to high expectations
Strong student-faculty relationships, where students are well known.
Engaging learning, where students see the relevance in their education
