Thank you to our friends at Schlotzsky's for supporting our wonderful band!
Schlotzsky's of Athens hosted a band night to allow the Athens High School Band to earn a portion of the sales from the evening. The band raised almost $500 that night! Schlotzsky's also donated two coupons to raffle. All the proceeds from the raffle benefited the AHS band.

Graduation reset to gym due to weather forecast

Athens Independent School District - Texas published a note.
Graduation reset to gym due to weather forecast
Athens ISD Superintendent Blake Stiles has announced that, due to the likelihood of bad weather, the June 2 commencement ceremony will be held inside Athens High School. Multiple weather forecasts currently indicate a high probability of rain on graduation day. In light of that outlook, the district is invoking its longstanding bad-weather plan to hold the ceremony inside the high school gymnasium. The district was notified on May 19 that, due to residue from a nearby house fire, unsafe levels of lead had been identified in the turf of Bruce Field where the ceremony was originally scheduled to be held. The company conducting the safety tests instructed the district to make other arrangements for any events planned at the stadium. In an effort to avoid the issues created by indoor space limitations, district leadership announced on the same day that graduation would be held in Malakoff at Tiger Stadium, with the backup plan for bad weather remaining in place. “We made the announcement about Tiger Stadium in a good-faith effort to provide our graduates and their families with a nearby venue that would provide more space than our gym,” said Stiles. “Now, with such a strong chance of rain in the forecast, we’re adapting once again to circumstances outside our control. In order to prepare Tiger Stadium for a ceremony our size, electrical and sound system accommodations would be needed. While we were prepared to do that, it makes no sense to work for days ahead of time on a gamble that the weather forecast is wrong.” Because of the number of fire exits, the gymnasium at Athens High School is limited by order of the fire marshal to about 1,040 people. As was the case last year when rain forced the ceremony indoors, the graduating class will be halved, and two separate ceremonies held. The first ceremony will be at 5:30 p.m. and the second at 7:30 p.m. The first ceremony will consist of students with last names beginning with the letters A-J; the second will be students whose last names begin with K-Z. Each student will receive nine tickets to be given to their guests. The ceremony is split in order to allow graduates to have more than four guest tickets each. Both ceremonies will be broadcast live on the district’s Facebook page. As was the case last year, other venues were explored and either are not available or hold no advantage over the AHS gym. For example, the Henderson County Fairpark is not available, as the arena floor will be setup for an event the following day, and holding graduation in the TVCC gym would still require two ceremonies in order to provide graduates with more than just a few guests each. “This underscores how wise the voters were when they approved the bond election in 2015 that is allowing us to work now on projects throughout the district, including a new events center at the high school that will seat over 3,000 people,” said Stiles. That project is expected to be completed in about a year.
