  • Brooms are here! We have several check outs this week, then we will check out/in brooms weekly. A couple of reminders:
    • Adults can sign out bundles of 6 or 12 brooms. You will be accepting responsibility for returning either money ($10 per broom) or unsold brooms.
    • If you’d like more than the max. 12 brooms to check out, please prepay for them (checks made payable to ABOB).
    • Students may get brooms if they pay for them upfront.
    • Please turn in money for all sold brooms before checking out more.
    • All money or unsold brooms must be in one month from their check out date.

  • Spaghetti Dinner – we will be having a spaghetti dinner on Saturday, February 3 (exact time TBA). We will have entertainment by the AHS Show Choir and AHS Concert Jazz Band. The show starts at 7pm. The dinner will be like the pancake breakfast – give a name at the door and that student receives credit for each ticket purchased!
