Soccer for a Cure Shirts
The parents, player, and coaches of the AHS soccer teams are requesting your support. We are super excited to begin the 2017 soccer season! Of the many games to be played, the Soccer for a Cure games have special meaning for our local community. The annual Auburn High’s Soccer for a Cure games began in 2009 as a means to raise money for three Auburn High School students diagnosed with cancer. Between 2009 and 2015 tickets, concessions, and t-shirt sales during the games generated over $15,000 for the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation’s cancer center transportation fund. The addition of pre-sold game day shirts helped the 2016 SFAC raised $5,550, making it our most successful event to date. The bar continues to be raised and preparations have begun for an even more successful 2017 SFAC. The SFAC event has benefitted so many in our community, and with your support we can do even more.

PTO Needs Your Help
Teacher Appreciation Week is February 13 - 16. PTO has a great week planned, but needs your help to make it all happen. If you would like to help, there are many ways you can contribute to show appreciation for the teachers and staff at AJHS. Please follow the link below to see the areas of need and sign up to help.
On February 15th, AJHS will screen 8th and 9th grade students for scoliosis. The purpose is to recognize, at the earliest stage, any deviation from normal so the need for treatment can be determined. Screening is required annually by Alabama law for all students in grades 5-9.
The Procedure is very simple. A trained screener observes the Child’s posture while standing and bending forward. It is suggested that girls wear a halter top or a bra during screening, and that boys remove their shirts. If scoliosis is suspected, your child will be referred. You will be notified so that you may get further evaluation from your own physician.
If you do not want your child to receive a scoliosis screening, you must provide a completed and signed “opt out” letter, written statement of refusal, or a medical provider’s written statement that your child has been seen and evaluated. Written statements must be provided to the school nurse, who oversees all screenings.
If you have questions, please contact the AJHS Nurse.
