AHS Rises to the Challenge
By Tom Doppe
As you likely know, Alhambra High School was closed on October 13 and 14 due to the air quality, and homecoming festivities had to be postponed. Our community has been very understanding and supportive of this necessary decision, but it is understood that this caused some disappointment and challenges. While the school was closed for two days, I was so proud of the way students made use of the time. Alhambra has always had a strong culture and history of community service, and this was demonstrated again last week. Instead of seeing the school closures as days off, various groups of students gave of their time to prepare meals and provide support to fire victims and first responders. Even now our leadership class and clubs continue to show compassion during this tragedy through various means such as collecting clothes for donation.
Please come out to celebrate our school and these great students during our new homecoming date! The homecoming rally, parade, and football game is now Friday, November 3. Let’s hope for a nice fall day. I hope all in the community are able to come out and join in on the fun!
The week of October 30 will be busy for us as we also have our fall play. This year, the production is The Laramie Project. Performances will be Wednesday and Thursday at 7pm along with a Saturday matinee (time TBD). Tickets will be available on campus or online. So, make it an Alhambra week and catch this great show as well as the homecoming festivities.
As always, thank you for your support.
