Daily Bulletin - Friday, September 29, 2017

No. 23
Block B Schedule


  • Principal Ritchie's Friday food for thought.  This week I was thinking about the men and women who help keep our school clean. I really appreciate the efforts of our custodial team Mike, Kenny, Kaye, Juan and all of the others who work together to keep our school and classrooms ready for us each day. Please help respect their efforts by cleaning up your food wrappers in the cafe and around campus and by keeping the restrooms in top shape.  
  • One of the staff bathrooms on the third floor has been converted into a student-use all gender single stall bathroom. It is available to anyone and everyone who would like to use it and it does not require a staff key. More information will be posted on the bulletin board in front of the main office. If there are any questions, Principal Ritchie or Senior Jack Morton can help. Please be respectful of the space and responsible with this restroom, thank you.
  • The Psat test will be on Saturday, October 14 at Albany High. The cost is $25 and students can pay on Myschoolbucks, or with exact change, or check payable to AUSD from the book room starting today.  Juniors have priority through 9/28. Sept. 29- Oct. 3: Sophomores. Oct.11-12: All other students. More details are posted on the Albany High website and outside the book room.
  • Picture Retake day is Friday, Sept. 29. If you did not have your picture taken before you will receive a pass to go to the library to have your picture taken.
