Congratulations to our Volleyball team on winning the first major tournament championship in school history – the Lake Highland/Winter Park High School Showcase. The Lady Sharks won all 5 matches only dropping 1 set all weekend. They showed strength and determination after being down 7 points in the third set only to come back and win a trip to the finals, where they defeated West Boca Raton. The Seniors demonstrated their leadership and guidance in motivating the team to victory. A true TEAM championship for the Lady Sharks!
In honor of 9-11, the Anclote High School JROTC and the Shark Band organized a special ceremony, including the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem, and a speech recognizing the significance of this date in history. The ceremony was concluded with a moment of silence, along with a ceremonial flower arrangement being placed at the base of the flag pole.
Eric Durnell traveled with the Tampa Bay Thunder Drum & Bugle Corps to Annapolis, Maryland to perform over the Labor Day weekend. Thunder is a member of the Drum Corps Association and is currently one of two performing members from the state of Florida. Congratulations Eric!
Congratulations to our girls swim team on their victory over Ridgewood 78-52 last week – the first swim victory in Anclote history! Our Lady Sharks Volleyball team is on a hot streak with victories last week over Hudson, Wesley Chapel, and Sunlake. This week we take on Wiregrass and Fivay in our first home game. The JV Football team had a big win in their opener defeating Ridgewood 40-0. Great job athletes!
On 8/27 Chef Wright and students, Dylan Dombroski, Hailey Nigro, Kiana Wiggins, and Joseph Wallace were invited to attend US Food’s annual culinary trade show. The show was held at the Tampa Bay Times Forum where the students created and cooked various vegetable recipes for chefs and restaurant owners in the Tampa Bay area.
Carin Zubillaga and the employees of Trinet graciously donated 25 backpacks and school supplies! On behalf of AHS faculty and staff as well as our AHS students and their families – thank you for assisting in removing the barriers to our students’ education! You are appreciated!
Anclote High School opened the year with a terrific first week. We would like to thank the students for their positive attitudes in adjusting to some of the new changes on campus. Parents are encouraged to review the school planners sent home with students this week, which includes important information. First period teachers also reviewed key Planner Points to Review with students this week. While this information does highlight key points, students and parents are still responsible for all information contained in the student planner.
