Attention Mustang Family, 1/9/2019

We are officially past the half way point of the 2018/2019 school year.  I hope you enjoyed the holiday break! The intent of this letter is to give you an update on some happenings about our facility at Argonaut High School and provide you with a preview about what is on the horizon for the next few weeks of the school year.

In the month of January, your student will begin selecting courses for the 2019-20 school year. Counselors will be making presentations in your student’s English class, providing course registration materials, January 10th -18th . The course registration forms are due at Argonaut, by the end of the day, January 25th. Please, take a few minutes to discuss academic options and pathways with your students. Should you want further information about a class, program or pathway, we will be hosting our annual Argonaut 101/Open House in the MPR between 6:00 – 7:30 pm on January 24th.  If you have questions regarding course registration, please come to the Argonaut 101/Open House or reach out to the counseling department.

Good News!  Many of the site improvement projects that we have been working on are complete. Our students have been taking courses in the new Culinary Academy Kitchen that is fully functional and engaging with FCCLA and ProStart to represent our school all over the state of California. The Track is nearly finished and human performance classes have been able to utilize the all-weather running surface. We are looking forward to hosting a Track meet this year. The Tennis bleachers were refurbished with new sealed wood and are ready for the season. After considerable support from the Argonaut Quarterback Club, plans are in place to install the new video scoreboard in the stadium.

We have a new and exciting development.  This winter break, the Amador County Unified School District partnered with local law enforcement agencies to perform an active shooter drill.  The real life drill was an event designed to dramatically recreate an active shooter scenario on campus. The drill was thought provoking and we are working to improve our comprehensive school safety plan based on the outcome of the training.

Reminder, we have free Math Tutoring Available. If your student needs more support in math, please have them take advantage of our free math support after school Tuesdays and Wednesdays with Mr. Hovey and Mr. Lucke.

Should you have questions, comments, concerns or helpful information about anything related to the please feel free to reach out to us at Argonaut High School. (209) 257-7700

We are looking forward to a successful second half of the school year.

It is a great time to be a Mustang!
