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 @afterahs19 for seniors, @ehbe3g for juniors, @afterahs21 for sophomores, or @afterahs22 for freshmen, and, if PINNACLE, @pinnacle19 for PINNACLE seniors, @pinnacle20 for juniors, @pinnacle 21 for sophomores, or @pnst22 for freshmen to 81010. 
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. 

Counselors may also be emailed at any time (see addresses in the box to the right).

Any method will result in a quick response.
Now you know how simple it is.
