Here’s an easy way to support ARHS online – at no cost to you! Do you shop at Stop & Shop? Do you have a loyalty card? Join the 2,400 other ARHS parents, staff, and alumni who have registered their cards in support of ARHS. Last year we received over $10,000 for our PGO grants program – all for free!
If you can’t find your card or got your card under a different name, you can call Consumer Affairs at 1-877-366-2668 and select Option #1; they can help you locate your card number.
Once you register your card, purchases made from all Stop & Shop stores are eligible. Have relatives in New York or New England? Ask them to register and support ARHS, too!
PSAT’s will be administered here at ARHS on Wednesday October 16th. Pre-registration will start this Monday (9/16) for all of the 11th graders interested in taking them. Students can pre-register in room 207 or room 309. The cost is $16, and checks can be made out to ARHS. Please contact Mr. Sadiq if you have any questions. Thanks.

THE YOUTH ROUND!
It’s back! We will have a youth-only Trivia Round before the main competition. Teams of players 14 years of age and younger will answer age-appropriate questions. Starts at 6 pm.
We are looking for businesses to sponsor our teams. Many businesses send their own teams, but we can also match your business with a team. Youth and Adult team sponsorships are $300, Round sponsorships are $600, and Event Underwriter is $1200.
If you’d like to play and don’t have a sponsor, we can help you out. We will match your team to a sponsor, and we can even build a team for you to compete with. Our teams have a lot of fun! Contact John or Ben below.
WHO SHOULD COME?
Everyone! Even if you’re not competing, it’s a lot of fun to come and watch and you can participate in the popular Audience Round! The Youth Round is a great way to start off the night! We hope to see you there!
