Open House - August 17
AJH’s Open House is scheduled for Sunday, August 17, from 5:00-6:00 p.m.  The purpose of the open house is to give students and their families an opportunity to come into the building, find their homerooms, and receive their schedules.  Students can then tour the building and locate the different classrooms they will be reporting to during the school day.  They will also receive their locker number and combination so they can practice opening their locker.  Almost all teachers will be here on Sunday evening to introduce themselves and help students feel more comfortable before the first day of school.  Click on "Read More..." for additional information!
