PTSA January Fundraisers

We are inviting AHS community to support our AHS students through following fundraisers this January:

Sports Basement


You can support Albany High School by becoming a Basementeer! Sports Basement is spinning the traditional “loyalty” program into a win-win for their loyal customers and our community. Basementeer’s receive 10% and give 10%: 10% off every item every day, 10% of profits back to local schools & charities, including Albany High School. Please watch this one minute video to get the idea. On your next visit to Sports Basement, register as a Basementeer and select Albany High School as your beneficiary!
