Help Fund SchoolCARE—Help Fund Electives

Dear AHS Families,

Since 2001, SchoolCARE has provided AHS and other AUSD schools with essential and varied support, all with funds donated by Albany families.

Please consider giving generously to SchoolCARE. All the proceeds directly benefit our Albany students! Having additional electives at AHS has been invaluable to providing much needed services to our students. We are so appreciative to SchoolCARE for supporting our students in this way.

SchoolCARE needs to raise an additional $75,000 district-wide by early summer to fund the staff that are most important to the community - like elective courses at AHS. Donations are important now for planning the coming school year.

For more information or to make donations, you can go to www.albanyschoolcare.org

Thank you for your ongoing support,
Alexia Ritchie, AHS Principal
