    A Message from your principal

    Viking Family,

    We are working diligently minute-by-minute to keep all parents, students, and faculty informed.  These are unprecedented times and we are swimming in uncharted waters.  However, we are going to keep our resolve, stay the course, and do our best to keep the educational process moving forward.  

    I understand that there are many questions at this time.  As we continue to get answers, we will update this website to keep you informed.  Please do everything that you can to practice safe measures as outlined by the CDC.  We will get through this and will continue to do everything we can to give our students every educational opportunity.  We will get through this as a family - One Team, One Heartbeat.  

    I am available Monday through Friday to answer any questions and/or concerns you may have.  My email address where I can be reached is justin.james@bossierschools.org.

    Someone from our AHS administration will get in touch with you to help you with any needs.

    Please take care,

    Justin James

    Submit Your Schedule Choices for the 2020-2021 School Year

    Students and Parents,

    Since we are not at the school right now, the counselors cannot meet with each student to complete his/her schedule for the 2020-2021 school year.

    The counselors are asking the students to click on the button above and follow the directions to complete the scheduling process electronically.

    We have to know now what classes will populate and what courses will "make" based on student requests.  

    The electronic schedule request must be sent to the counselor by May 8, 2020, whether we are physically at AHS or not.  

    Scheduling Website

    Each year, April is set aside as a military child appreciation month, officially known as the Month of the Military Child. With its start in the mid-1980s, the Pentagon and other military support organizations and agencies use the month to recognize military kids for their sacrifice and bravery on the homefront.
    The term "military brat" is a badge of pride worn by generations of kids who traveled the world with their parents, moving into adulthood with the knowledge that they have the strength to handle anything. Military children deal with separations, deployments, frequent moves and even their parents' injuries as part of the life they were born into or entered with their families.
    Because purple is a color used to represent all military services, the theme "Purple Up" is used over the course of the month.

    Interested in being on the Airline Newspaper Staff? 

    Read the qualifications below.   If you are interested, email Mrs. Lucas, heidi.lucas@bossierschools.org, saying you would like an application, and a Google form will be sent to you.  Being on staff requires learning the Adobe programs that are used to layout the paper; taking pictures; interviewing peers, Airline staff, and community members; writing stories, then taking staff and adviser critiques, and editing stories; laying out your work into a newspaper format; and selling advertisements and working off-campus at times to support the production of the paper. 

    Qualifications for being on staff:

    • Writing ability with a solid grasp of grammar, usage and mechanics
    • Positive attitude (in the face of rewrites, constructive criticism, writer’s block)
    • Responsible--must have a clean discipline and attendance record (VERY, very important as you will have off-campus privileges)
    • Good reputation with peers and teachers
    • Self-directed with an ability to think and work independently--all staff is typically working on different tasks.  
    • Motivation to cover stories about our school, community, nation, and world
    • Willingness to interview peers and strangers
    • Selling ads to support the paper
    • Scheduled for Newspaper 4th block
    Ad selling:  One aspect of all publications is selling advertisements.  This is no different from the Askalada as our school paper is not funded by the school, but completely by ad sales and donations.  So all members of staff are required to sell $500 in ads (broken up into 4 deadlines throughout the year). This is half of the grade for the class.
    On the application sent to you through email, you will be required to choose a news topic and write about it.  It is strongly advised that you first type your writing sample on a document ahead of time and copy/paste it onto the form. 

     

    You will complete one of the following subtitles to make it specific to the angle in which you decide to write and then prepare your story: 
    The Unexpected Effects of Covid 19: ___________________                
    Digital School:__________________ 
    The Brighter Side of Crisis: _____________________
    You may choose whatever angle you wish, but your information must be factual with no plagiarism. More information and suggestions will be in the email with the application link.  
    Make sure that your parents are in agreement with you being in the newspaper class.  If you are selected to be on staff, a student and parent agreement form and contract will be sent to you to be signed and sent back to Airline.  

    ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2020.
