This is the last Rocket Report of the semester. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we wish you all a blessed Christmas.
May your celebration of the birth of Jesus this season
Open you to the true joy and lasting peace of Christ.
May what began in a simple manger on that night so long ago
Continue in our hearts every day of the coming year.

SECOND SEMESTER BOOKS: Christmas break is a good time to check and make sure students have all of their second semester books. Please go towww.mbsdirect.netto review this list.
FIRST SEMESTER GRADE REPORTS: First semester grade reports will be emailed to parents on Monday, January 6.
UNIFORM UPKEEP: We have asked the girls to take care of any uniform issues over Christmas break. Skirts have started to get shorter, buttons are missing, and hems are falling. Please assist your daughter in evaluating her current uniform status and take care of any uniform upkeep so that we can start off second semester as well as we did first semester. We sincerely appreciate your help and cooperation!
NO EXTRA DECALS ON TABLET PCS: Students were reminded of our policy this week with this announcement: Students, please take some time over the Christmas holidays to remove any decals you have placed on the tablet PC that AHS is providing to you. The only decals that should be on the computer are the ones the IT Department put there for identification purposes. We want the appearance of this educational tool to reflect that you respect school property and treat it properly. As stated in the 2019-2020 Student Handbook, “A student who defaces her computer by affixing stickers, writing on it, etching into it, etc. will face disciplinary consequences.” We plan to check computers after our break and will be enforcing this policy. Thank you in advance for taking care of this matter.
FINANCIAL AID FORM: The financial aid link for 2020-2021 has been added to the school’s website. The due date is February 28, 2020, and the form must be submitted online to FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION LINK
