  • TWIG Parent/Family Coffee

    December 5, 2022  8:25 am - 9:10 am

    Welcome to TWIGS, AHS' family engagement program! Our mission is to create meaningful connections among AHS families so that we can collectively provide social, educational and financial support for Animas High School.

    At the foundation of every beautiful Osprey getting ready to soar is an intricate woven nest of twigs, creating a safe and secure environment. Even though our students are learning to be fabulously independent humans, that support is still essential to their success. As AHS is not your typical high school, TWIGS is not your typical PTA. We are creating a fun, social environment where families can connect, support the students and staff and be a part of the AHS community at large.

    Osprey Parents and Families are invited to join us for TWIG Coffees on the 2nd Monday of each month. Gather right after student drop off for a cup of joe, connective conversation and a chance to hear school community updates from Rebecca and our staff. TWIG Coffees and other events are a great way to meet other parents and learn how you can get more involved.

    TWIGS: Together We Inspire Greatness!

  • Presentations of Learning

    December 12, 2022  8:30 am - 3:30 pm

    A Presentation of Learning is a formal presentation given by students to a panel comprised of peers, community members, administrators, teachers and/or parents at the end of each semester. Before POLs, students practice their presentations, focus on specific public-speaking skills, receive feedback from teachers and peers and finally refine and rehearse their POL delivery. At the end of second semester, transitional presentations are used to determine whether students are ready to advance to the next grade. Requirements for TPOLs are grade-level specific, but typically include an oral presentation, use of the student’s digital portfolio and evidence or artifacts from their core classes. Students who attempt but do not pass POLs/TPOLs are given additional opportunities to present once they have refined their work based upon the review panel’s feedback. Students must continue to redo their POL/TPOL until they pass.
