-Hello AR students! Are any of you interested in participating in the lip-sync this year, but don’t have any idea for what song you are planning on doing? Are you familiar with the theatrical masterpiece that is Hamilton™? Well, you’re in luck! For the lip sync, me (Lena vassel, first year) and a friend of mine (Trinity Fleming, second year) were thinking of doing the glorious song “Alexander Hamilton” for the lip sync, but we still need a lot of other dancers to perform with us. We were thinking, maybe the kind, generous students of AR could help us out. If you are interested in any way/shape/form, please contact us at or for more information. Here is the class code to a google classroom to see updates and information on the performance. 3g9qcp

Email Ian if interested in joining a weekly support group of AR students working to support each other in combating anxiety and stress.

AR students enrolled in college classes can purchase 31 Day Redwood Transit Passes from CR’s Student Services Building at an extra discounted cost. 


Google Chromebooks Insurance

Insurance policies can be purchased for the chromebooks at the AR attendance office. Purchasing insurance is highly encouraged, as it will save you money in the event that accidental damage to the chromebook occurs. It is suggested that all students buy a protective case for their chromebook to avoid damaging them. Carrying your chromebook in a backpack along with other books and no protective casing often results in a cracked screen. Chargers are considered accessories and therefore not covered by insurance, so students will be held financially responsible in the event that they damage their chromebook charger. Replacement chargers can be purchased in the AR Office for $20. Policies are $22 for 1 year of coverage with a $0 deductible. If you would like to purchase insurance online, you can do so at the following link:
