Want to visit with an AHS counselor?

A wonderful and easy way to communicate with the counselors is through your phone or computer using Remind. Simply text @afterahs17 for seniors; @TVCC for juniors and @pinnacle17 for PINNACLE seniors to 81010. Using this method, you will get the quickest response.
 
For your convenience, AHS has set up a computerized communication system for you to notify a counselor that you need help with all kinds of academic and personal needs.  Go to the AHS library (7:30 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.) counter and ask. All you need is your lunch #.  Once you add your request, an email is sent to the counselor.  You will then be contacted with assistance. 

Ms. Griffin is consistently available for open visits from 4-7 each weekday and 8-12 each Saturday in the AHS library.  Just walk in with your questions.
 
Now you know how simple it is.
