Thank you to all the parents, caregivers, families and community members who attended our Language Arts Night supper and performances.  As always your students were awesome.  We are having some students start to miss a lot of school days. It is critical that the students get to school as the spring testing is just around the corner and the testing indicates their classroom placement for the next school year. Remember the state monitors the attendance records of any student who misses more than 20 days (excused and unexcused days) , as these students are subject to retention in the same grade for the next school year! Also remember the state of SD counts three tardiness days as one day of absenteeism! Dr. Gloria J Coats-Kitsopoulos- AHS Superintendent
