Challenge #6 comes from Erin P.  Her challenge was 15 minutes of Challenge club soccer practice!  Erin and her team are a talented group of young ladies!  I held my own, but I was embarrassed a few times as well.  I am a former marathon runner currently training for a half-marathon, but still struggled to keep up with Erin and others.  Once again, I practiced about 15 of the 90 minutes total.  You can't see it, but I was gasping for oxygen in the picture. 

Eric B. instructed me on effective putting skills in Challenge #5.  No slope or big break on the green was too tough for Eric.  On one part of the putting green, with a significant hill, he got within 1-4 feet on all 4 of the putts.  I didn't do too bad, myself, getting two putts within 4 feet.  With continued practice you'll see Eric on the AHS golf team next year!  Thanks for the putting instruction, Eric!
AMS Amazing Race Challenge #4 came from Lauren R. of the 7th grade Volleyball team. First, 20 sprints across the court -- I was winded! 8 minute passing, setting drill -- I held my own! Side-stepping/slides across the room in a crouched position -- pain in my thighs! I survived! Thanks, Lauren, for the challenge! Thanks, Coach Holcombe, for the opportunity to seeing firsthand how you get the girls to perform at their best!

NEW!  Parents can now subscribe to email alerts from Home Access Center for Attendance and Course Averages.  Parents MUST “opt-in” to receive these updates from HAC.  This is a great way to track grades without having to log into HAC!

2.     Click My Alerts on the left menu.

3.     Check the box for Attendance. You will receive an email at 4:00 p.m. each Monday if any attendance has been recorded for your student during the previous week. You may limit the alerts to specific absence codes by clicking the link and selecting certain codes.

4.     Check the box for Course Average. Set the thresholds as you wish. We will send a weekly alert each Monday at 4:00 p.m. In the example below, the parent will receive an email alert when the student’s average falls below 75% in any class or when the student’s average is above 90% in any class.
