(September 28—October 3, 2015)

HOMECOMING WEEK IS HERE!  And we say “goodbye” to September and “hello” to October.  It should be a great week at AK, as we have a busy schedule of big home athletic events this week and Homecoming activities.  Friday will be especially jam packed with community spirit, as the Fall Sports Pep Rally takes place during the day, the annual Homecoming Parade over to Community House Middle takes place after school (3:00 PM), and the Varsity Football Homecoming Game and Ceremony cap off the day.  Also, coinciding with the Homecoming Game, the annual Pink Out game theme will be taking place.  Let’s have a great Homecoming Week Knights!


  • FOOTBALL: (AK Football started off strong in SoMeck 8 Conference play, defeating West Meck 47-20 to begin 1-0 in the conference.  Olympic visits this Friday for AK Homecoming, as the Knights look for a 2-0 SoMeck 8 start!)

    • 10/2 – Varsity @ Home vs. Olympic (7:00 PM)


  • VOLLEYBALL: (AK Volleyball earned two conference victories last week and stand at 7-1 in the SoMeck 8, tied for 1st Place going into the second half of the conference season.  Two more conference matches this week, and the JV’s continue their undefeated season!)
