Greetings Laker Nation,

Law Enforcement, LakeCam, Children's Art Lab, Real Estate Broker and Special Education are our current areas for Semester II Internships.  If a student is interested in any of these Internship opportunities for Semester II, please send him/her to the Guidance Office for an application. Our LakeCAM Semester I Interns gave their culminating presentation this week.   Check out their final product:  If you are a local professional and you have room for student interns, please contact Mrs. Fontaine in the Guidance Office at

Allison Hodgson, Carlee-sue Choate, and Abigail Soares are three ARHS students participating in the Teen Artist Internship Program (TAIP) at the New Bedford Art Museum. Best wishes to these aspiring young artisans!

Congratulations to Austin Lopes, Class of 2019!  Austin received an Honorable Mention during this year’s Scholastic Art and Writing Award competition. He received this recognition for his digital photograph titled "hen SHINE"​.  

Our Art Department’s annual Visual Arts display at The Great Ponds Gallery at the Lakeville Public Library is scheduled for Saturday, March 3rd.  Stop by during the month of March and view the beautiful art work of students from ARHS and Old Colony.  

Congratulations to the following students who were selected by the Wellness Department to attend the Old Colony YMCA 29th Annual Youth Conference:  Ryan Dandrea, Hannah Correia, Paris Inacio, Brady Sunderland, Jordan McCloskey, Tim Johnson, Declan Barach and Sara Martins.

A mob of motivated high school students with dreams of inclusion greeted athletes and fans from ARHS at the 2nd Annual Unified Bocce Tournament hosted at Rockland High School.

Sleepy eyed but eager, the swarm of ARHS students, led by Coaches Shara, Emery, and Solomon, strode confidently through the unfamiliar halls of RHS to meet their opponents.  There, on the subdivided gymnasium courts, bolings were placed and bocces thrown in a friendly game measured not only in inches, but in heart.  Students played to the impassioned encouragement of their coaches.  The words "if you had fun, you won" rang in the ears of the contestants.  While statistical victory came only to those with the highest score, ultimately, everyone was the victor.

Congratulations to Dr. Tate who was selected to participate in theBiteScis 2018 March workshop!   In this workshop, Dr. Tate will be paired with a local science graduate student. Together, they will create a lesson plan incorporating current research related to the grad student’s field.  After the workshop, Dr. Tate and the student will remain on the BiteScis Leadership Team to produce one complete and polished draft of at least one of the lesson plans for use at ARHS.
