-Are you interested in learning more about the planet you live on? Do you want to know more about today’s global issues, structures of our planet’s society, and placing day-to-day news into context? We all live our lives geographically. Planet Earth is our home. It’s awesome, diverse, inspiring, and ever-changing. Studying, and learning more about geography invites us to get more engaged in the excitement, enjoyment, and challenge of this dynamic world. The purpose of my club, is to both increase student interest and awareness about geography. With that, we can form a team, and prepare to compete nationally at numerous geography competitions in 2018! For more information, please contact Samy Awwad (


Google Chromebooks Insurance Update

The company AR purchases insurance policies through for chromebooks just lowered their rates for us. The new rate for chromebook coverage is $20 for 1 year of coverage. If you paid $40 for chromebook insurance, your device is now covered for 2 years instead of 1. If you want to purchase insurance for your chromebook, just bring $20 cash or a check made out to Academy of the Redwoods to the AR Office. We strongly encourage purchasing the insurance, as uninsured repairs can be very expensive and are the financial responsibility of the student. We also recommend you purchase a protective case for your chromebook.


-PG&E will be doing brush and tree removal on their easement the next couple of weeks. The work will include spaces behind the Greenhouse and up the hill. AR staff and students will need to stay clear of the area while they are working.

-AR Club Protocol

At AR our clubs end every school year and in order to have an official club you must start it over each year. To start a club you must first get an advisor. Then get a club sign up form in the attendance office, fill it out and get it signed by your new advisor who can help you decide whether or not you need to take notes, elect leaders and have a treasurer. You need to decide when and where you would like to meet, and ask your advisor if that time and space are available on the SSC club calendar. If it is, ask them to save that spot for your club for the year or semester. You use this same process for any activities your club would like to schedule. Send your announcement to by 12pm the day before you would like it to run. Make sure you use proper grammar and spelling while also using proper punctuation. If you are unsure, run it by your advisor first. When it is ready to send make sure that you also CC your advisor so that Sami is assured your advisor knows about the announcement. If you will be raising any money remember that your advisor needs to know about every activity even if it is off school grounds.
