We have added a Wahoo’s fundraiser night on Monday April 22nd, between 4:00-9:00pm at the Park Meadows location…officially on Dry Creek Road, off Chester, near Guitar Center. We will get 50% of the proceeds so please come out, encourage your friends, spread the word at AHS. A flyer is attached if you want to share with friends.
Number of Days remaining in the 2019 Swimming and Diving Season
(as of Monday, April 8th)
B League – 26 days, A League – 32 days, State – 38 days
Parents: We have had a special request to help with After Prom in two ways. First, we need some people to repair some of the casino games (two Plinko boards) before the May 4th prom date. This might be a great job for someone who’s good with their hands. And we also need people to volunteer for the casino room, setting up before, breaking down the next day and volunteering at After Prom. Please consider volunteering in one way or another. Contact Steve Brewer email@example.com if you can help.
The dates for State have been corrected. The correct dates are Thursday May 16 and Friday May 17. They had previously been listed as Friday and Saturday.
Wed April 10—Meet against Littleton at Heritage HS—4:30pm
Littleton, Heritage, and Arapahoe will compete at Heritage High School.
Each swimmer will enter in two individual events. There will be limited relay opportunities.
No transportation (bus) to Heritage. All swimmers should transport themselves to the meet. Please meet in the pool area immediately after school on Wednesday. Those in need of a ride should arrange a ride to Heritage.

Our schedule is regularly updated at:
A big thank you from Coach Richmond and the Board for all the volunteer efforts at the AHS Invite this last weekend. This meet and the AHS Relays raise funds for the team and we appreciate all the busy volunteers.
We’ve added a volunteer request to bring snacks for the girls Timing Club that’s helping our timing requirements this season. There are two slots for each home meet—please consider bringing treats to entice these young volunteers.

HEART OF A WARRIOR SCHOLARSHIP
*PARENTS—This is a great opportunity that Coach Taylor is leading. If you know a business that can help, please let us know. And if a parent is willing to take a lead on this project, please notify Coach Taylor. *
From Coach Taylor: I have been working on getting a scholarship built for the senior boys. I have all the approvals I need and am now in the process of building the scholarship committee, drafting qualifications, and pursuing donations. The scholarship will be called the Heart of a Warrior Scholarship. My goal is build a scholarship that allows a senior the opportunity to receive $1000 from their Freshman to Senior year in college. I’m reaching out to all of you to see if any of you own small businesses that would like to donate to the scholarship or work for companies that would be interested in contributing to the scholarship. If you have any interest, please reach out to me or Tina Brewer. Thank you!
KING SOOPERS CARD UPDATES
An update from the King Soopers organization about their new approach:
Dear Arapahoe High School Boys Swimming & DIving Team,
For more than 70 years, King Soopers has been committed to supporting the communities where its associates live and work. The King Soopers Neighborhood Rewards Program has helped nearly 5,000 organizations raise funds, and none of that would be possible without your support.
We know that supporting your community nonprofit should never be difficult. Starting on April 1st we are launching a new program to make it easier than ever before. This new program will allow those who support your organization to simply use their registered King Soopers loyalty card to earn funds for your organization.
Here’s How It Works:
· No more reloadable gift cards (this will now be tied to the King Soopers loyalty card)
· Share your organization or group number with friends, family, colleagues and mutual supporters
· It will pay out every quarter (starting at the end of 2nd quarter in 2019)
· Check and statement will be sent out 30 days after the end of the cycle
· Over TEN million dollars will be donated annually with this new program
· These links have great information to help with the process and answer most, if not all questions.
Your group members and supporters can enroll their King Soopers Loyalty Cards online at our secure website, www.Kingsoopers.com/communityrewards. Starting now, you can invite members to begin enrolling on-line. Starting April 1, 2019 every time an enrolled member of your group shops at King Soopers using his or her enrolled King Soopers Loyalty Card, your organization will earn rewards. In addition, once a household member enrolls his or her card, all linked King Soopers Loyalty Cards within that household will begin earning funds for your organization.
Thank you for being a part of the King Soopers Neighborhood Rewards Program. We look forward to continuing to partner with your organization in the future as a King Soopers Community Rewards member and the millions of ways we can make a difference in our communities.
Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
