The latest Principal's Newsletter has been posted to the website. You can find the complete newsletter here: PRINCIPAL'S NEWSLETTER - NOVEMBER 20, 2015
Happy Fall! We have a lot going on this month. Our newsletter is going out through Constant Contact weekly and seems to be well received. It has been a great way to send quick reminder emails about deadlines coming up for a variety of PTSA programs.
Pizza with the Principal last month was a big success! JoAnn gave a great presentation and answered questions. Attendees were treated to pizza and dessert from our Culinary Art students.
Staff Appreciation - Staff Appreciation has been busy providing Halloween treat bags to staff and planning the Conference Dinner on November 24, 2015.
SAT/ACT - We had both a Community Connections program on the NEW SAT and ACT presented by The Answer and a SAT/ACT practice test this month.
Membership - We published the names of PTSA members which seemed to be beneficial in getting people to join. Although our total revenue is down from last year, our membership numbers are up.
Student Directory - The Directory will be out in December. We are waiting for the final information from the County and should have it by November 15, 2015. Then we need to get it printed.
POPS - Parents on Patrol is struggling to get volunteers. This is a common issue for a few of our programs. We need to brainstorm on ways to get volunteers for the PTSA!
RP3 - We held a planning meeting for the Raider Post Prom Party scheduled for May. We still need a lot of volunteers and will continue to advertise for help.
We have the opportunity to use a glass showcase at the front of the school in the main hallway. We need a volunteer to decorate it! Let me know if you are interested.
Lastly, Dr. Foose is visiting Atholton this week. We will have desserts from the Culinary Arts Students to enjoy.

Each December, on behalf of all AHS families, the PTSA serves a catered lunch to our fantastic AHS staff to show them how much they are appreciated. This year’s lunch will be on Thursday, December 17. We know this is a busy time of year, so instead of asking for food contributions, we’re asking for cash donations. All families who contribute will be recognized on a large card to our staff. Please consider making a donation (any amount) to support this scrumptious effort.
Contributions can be made in one of two ways:
1. By credit card: Select “Donate to the PTSA!” from the Quick Links menu to the left. Please be sure to indicate that your donation is for Staff Appreciation.
2. By check: Mail check, made payable to AHS PTSA, to Amy Bagley, 6936 Newberry Drive, Columbia, MD 21044.
Please contact Amy (301-596-9201 or firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. As always, thank you for your support!
