The funds raised through Stop & Shop A+ Rewards program have made it possible to support many initiatives at the high school. Stop & Shop’s A+ Rewards is ARHS PGO’s largest fundraising initiative and the sole funding source of the PGO Grants Program. Here are excerpts from some of the thank you notes from past years’ grant recipients:

“…the Science Department at ARHS was able to purchase three electronic dissolved oxygen sensors…This year, students were able to set up water samples and observe what happened to the dissolved oxygen in real-time under different conditions…This took the science of dissolved oxygen, which past classes have mostly just discussed in theory, and made it observable and real to students.” –Nat Woodruff, Science Teacher

“…thank you for the great viewfinders…I thought they really helped the kids make better compositions in my Painting class. We are sure to use them in many classes for years to come…As always, your support for the Art Department is truly amazing.” – Mr. Stauder, Art Teacher

“…thanks again for helping us build our repertoire of authentic labs and allowing us to purchase equipment that we otherwise could not afford!” – Mike Thompson, Science Teacher

“…The grant money was used to fund interview workshops with private consultant Mark Efinger. Mark’s workshops were a wonderful supplement to the communication and transition skills we target within the program…It was a joy to watch my students stretch themselves in this way and experience the confidence-building positive results…” – Kathleen Olson, SE Teacher
