Congratulations to Anclote High School’s 2016 Homecoming Queen, Alexis Braman, and King, Braxton Johnson. The Varsity Sharks took home a win with a 39-0 shutout of the Fivay Falcons to cap off a memorable Homecoming Week. The game was followed by the Masquerade Homecoming Dance, where the students celebrated by dancing the night away.
As a result of Hurricane Matthew, the Varsity Football game against Fivay has been moved to Saturday, October 8 at 5:30. Presentation of the Homecoming Court and crowning of the 2016 King and Queen will take place during halftime. The Homecoming Dance will be from 7:30-10:30. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door with an AHS picture ID. In addition, Anclote High School was selected to host the MyFox Prep Rally on Friday, October 12. In honor of our graduating seniors we will be having a Spirit Day on Friday, including the parades at lunch, and presentation of the Spirit Stick.

Please join us for Shark Family Night Friday, September 16 from 5:00 – 6:30. Students and families can meet the teachers, receive information on clubs and activities, and take a school tour! The Title 1 presentation will begin at 5:00 in the gym, followed by an open forum for families to visit with staff at their convenience. At the conclusion of our open house format, AHS will be hosting a pre-game BBQ tailgate beginning at 6:30. Capping off the night will be our Varsity Sharks hosting the Hudson Cobras at 7:30. We look forward to seeing everyone this Friday!
The district continues to monitor the current weather situation carefully and will notify schools and the community if there is any decision impacting the opening/closing of schools. Because these types of storms are often unpredictable we have made the decision to move Shark Family Night, along with the pep rally and tailgate to Friday, September 16. In the event the weather does indeed worsen throughout the week, we want our staff and families to be able to focus on ensuring the safety and well being of their homes and families. Families are encouraged to monitor the school and district websites for the most up to date notifications impacting schools due to weather concerns.
