  • Into the Future
    On Thursday, June 18th, AWR had an assembly to not only congratulate many students on academic achievements, but also to fill and close our time capsule. It was very interesting to see what each grade selected to put into the time capsule. The kids watched a little video of Mrs Hansen getting into a REAL DeLorean and taking off "Into the Future". She returned grey haired and excited! We truly hope you will all be around in 2035 when the time capsule will be opened. Thanks to the Wolters of the DeLorean Mid-Atlantic Club for lending us their DeLorean.
