8th Grade NYC Trip

Information came home with students recently about the 8th grade NYC trip. We just wanted to note that if you would like to take advantage of the payment plan, you will need to edit the "price" box next to it in MyPaymentsPlus from the full cost of $800 to the deposit cost of $135 before continuing your payment. You will be able to make additional payments at any time, MyPaymentsPlus will keep track of your progress, and we will remind you of the due dates for each installment as they approach. Please note that the deposit of $135 is DUE in MyPaymentsPlus by 11:59pm on Wednesday, October 17th. We've got an exciting trip planned, and we can wait to share it with our students!

Alumni Database

We're working diligently to create the first-ever ARS alumni database. We hope this will allow us to more easily keep up with our alumni, as well as give us the data we need to create an alumni showcase feature on our website. If you or someone you know is an ARS alumnus, please ask them to fill out this survey and submit a current headshot. We're especially interested in hearing from those who have started their careers and can serve as inspiration for our current students and prospective new families; however, we welcome any and all alumni contributions. Thank you!

Annual Fund

As a public charter school, ARS relies on the support of its community. Please consider setting up a recurring donation this year! You can choose to give as little as $5 per month, and this is easier for many families than making one big donation per year. Visit the Annual Fund page on our website to learn more and sign up!
