Support for the Golani Brigade
Yoni Hadar, a solider in the IDF’s Golani Brigade, spoke to AHA middle school students several months ago about his life and experiences in the Israeli Army. He told the students about a nonprofit to raise funds to provide helmets, knee pads, and water canteens to the soldiers in the his brigade.
The goal for this worthy project is $50,000, and they have already raised $42,000. If you’d like to help you can donate at:
All the money goes through a tax deductible organization, and there are no overhead costs. Every donation goes directly towards buying equipment for a soldier.

Safety and Security Reminders

padlock

Just a reminder of AHA security procedures:

  • All parents should use the front door to enter the school with key cards and not the back doors. Parent swipe cards only work at front door.
  • Please do not ask students to open any doors- parents must report to the front office and check-in before entering the school.
  • No student or other person should use the lunchroom doors other than for dismissal or emergency purposes.

These rules are for our children’s safety.

Thank you for your cooperation!

 

 

Car Pool Rules 

All Parents who Car Pool:

 

Please note that the car pool line is for grades N and K only. All other students are to be dropped off in the front of the building.

 

Parents who use the back for drop off should follow the directions of the teachers in the parking lot. They are there to assist students and maintain a safe environment.  

 

Under no circumstances are parents to park their cars in the middle of the line and leave them unattended to walk students into the building.  

 

** We ask that parents refrain from cellphone use in the parking areas while dropping off and picking up their children.
