Don't miss another NEWSLETTER! Join AHSAA and receive all AHS Alumni newsletter issues every year via "snail mail". If you are already a member, find out how to check your membership expiration date.

19,000 newsletters were mailed to AHS Alum May of 2009. The AHSAA previously mailed a complete Spring AHS Alumni Association newsletter to every living Alum thru 2009. Starting May of 2010, because of rising paper costs, postage and printing, we started sending only a reminder postcard, instead of a newsletter, once a year to non-member Alumni. Staring 2019, as a cost saving measure, and because sending postcards to all Alumni is not as productive, we started sending only reminder postcards to recent lapsed members, not to everyone. The only way to receive a brand new shiny newsletter is to join

All 1990 to 2000 newsletters were scanned by Alumna Tami Kuhn AHS 1979, and are labeled "scan", a few in web format, otherwise original pdf from the printer. If they are labeled join they will be online in 2-3 years. Membership has its advantages :-)
