As a charter school, AHS receives about $2,000 less per student than other public schools annually. The AHS Desert Sun Coffee Holiday Fundraiser allows our students and families an easy way to help close this funding gap and support our school by selling high-quality, organic, fair-trade, locally-roasted coffee to friends, family and neighbors, just in time for Holiday Season gift giving.

We hope that ALL students participate and sell a minimum of 10 bags of coffee. Students may choose to go door-to-door, or reach out to relatives and family friends. Parents are also invited to help with the fundraiser by selling coffee to work colleagues and friends. We will have prizes for the two Advisory groups who sell the most coffee, and prizes for the top three individual students as well!

Buyers have the option of three Desert Sun roasts–Dark Canyon, Southwest Morning or Mountain Decaf–either whole bean or ground, for $12/bag. Students can collect cash or checks, payable to “Animas High School.” Please be sure to record all information on the AHS Desert Sun Coffee Holiday Fundraiser Order Form, which will be distributed to students in Advisory in an envelope on Wednesday, Nov. 13.
