To all our Attleboro High School Families,
We are on the verge of an exciting and monumental time in our school and city’s history. Our community has provided the students of Attleboro with a state of the art building that centers around our mission to engage, challenge and inspire all students. The opportunities for learning that will occur in our comprehensive new school are endless. We can’t wait for you to be a part of everything that our Attleboro High School has to offer!
Below are some important updates regarding upcoming events, school supplies, and how we will be communicating with you.
We will be conducting both a Freshmen Orientation and New Building Tours during the week of August 22.
We will hold new building tours by grade level on August 23 at the following times:
Incoming Grade 10 Students - 8:00 am
Incoming Grade 11 Students - 9:00 am
Incoming Grade 12 Students - 10:00 am
Tours will be given by house and will last approximately 30 minutes. This is a drop-off event; at this event, tours are for students only. There will be an open house for families on September 24.
Freshmen Orientation will occur on Thursday, August 25 at 5:30 pm. This is an in-person event and will occur in the new building. More specific information will be shared as we get closer to the event. Please continue to check the AHS website for updates.
This is the first day of school for our students.
An open house for the entire Attleboro community will occur Saturday, September 24.
School Supplies List 2022-23
This year we will be in a new building with state of the art technology and internet access. As such, the primary school supply that all students will need to bring with them to their classes will be their school-issued Chromebook. Students should bring their fully charged Chromebook and charger to school everyday. Students new to AHS (including freshmen) will be issued their Chromebooks within the first few days of school. Students with course specific supply needs will be notified of them in the first few days of the school year.
Below is a list of potential general supplies your family may consider purchasing. None of these items are required:
Backpack: Very few high school students use lockers; therefore, backpacks are relatively standard. Please select one that is comfortable, functional, and able to fit a Chromebook and charger.
Planner/Agenda: Being organized is crucial to success at the high school level. It is
recommended that students have a planner/agenda that has enough space on each day to list. You can use your Chromebook for this but a physical one can be an alternative.
Paper: Students should bring in some form of paper that works best for them: notebooks, loose-leaf paper in binders, graph paper, etc are all acceptable.
Writing Utensils: Students should bring in some form of writing utensil. Pens or pencils are acceptable; some may also want to use highlighters.
Calculators: Although some math and science classes will utilize a scientific calculator, it is not advisable to buy an expensive calculator until the teacher has met with the class.
Locks: As mentioned previously, very few students use a locker, but those who choose to must provide their own lock and register their locker with their house office.
Organization: Staying organized is a crucial component of success in high school. Consider an organization system that works best for you: binders, folders, etc.
How We Will Communicate
In the upcoming weeks, we will be transitioning away from email as a primary communication platform. We will be using our new website and its communication features to share messaging with students and families. If you haven’t already done so, please download the app designed for mobile devices. It’s everything AHS in your pocket:
In the future we will be providing updates on the following (this is not an all-inclusive list):
Academics and Activities calendar
Music programming and other extracurricular activities
