Principal’s Corner

Greetings AHA families,

There is much to share, as this edition of the Principal’s Corner shares with the AHA community the many changes coming to AHA for the 2017-18 school year.

Changes to the AHA Staff There are a handful of teachers that we’d like to s
ay goodbye and best wishes to:

Mrs. Robin Whatley – Happy Retirement!
Mrs. Dubien – best of luck in your future endeavors
Ms. Rona Morrison – Happy Retirement!
Mrs. Allred – best of luck in your future endeavors
Mrs. Vojacsek – enjoy being back home on the East Coast in Delaware!
Mrs. Stafford – enjoy that baby boy and the rest of your family!

New Hires
Please help me in welcoming Mrs. Deanna Boggess and Ms. Kelly Maize to our family. Mrs. Boggess comes to us from the AHA CV campus as our new K-8 Paraprofessional. She will be replacing Ms. Kristen Gressley’s position, as Ms. Gressley has agreed to become our new 8th grade teacher!

Ms. Maize will be our new K-12 Art teacher along with course offerings in Drama/Theatre, and Photography. We are thrilled to have her join our team and ecstatic to bring back the performing arts!

Mrs. Sudol will be looping with her Kinders that she had this year and will be our 1st grade teacher next year, replacing Mrs. Whatley.

There are some structural changes coming to our SPED Dept. Mrs. Donovan will still be with AHA and her office will still be here on campus. She will be writing IEP’s and scheduling IEP’s for 3 other Edkey Inc. campuses, including ours. The SPED teacher that we are seeking to hire will be responsible for servicing those on an IEP or 504 Plan.

AHA is actively seeking qualified educators for the following vacancies:
SPED Teacher
Kindergarten Teacher
ELL Liaison
Title I Reading Coordinator
3rd Grade Teacher

We are excited to announce that for grades 10, 11, and 12, there will be extended opportunities during the school day to take either their Foreign Language requirement (with Rosetta Stone), a Sequoia Choice High School course (that AHA doesn’t offer or can’t accommodate into the student’s schedule), or a Yavapai College online course (to get ahead and receive tuition reimbursed college credits). We will prioritize in that order. If they haven’t taken their foreign language yet, that must be completed first….then a Choice course, and then a Yavapai course.

Putting a bow on the end of the academic year…

The month of May “may” be short on letters, but it’s never short of fun and excitement at AHA!
