Student Activities

What a week we had on campus! Homecoming 2022 was incredible and we are so appreciative of all of the support that you provided to our community, whether it was our 16 incredible parent liaisons, the food donations, the encouragement and support, or the RECORD breaking donations to the Contra Costa Food Bank. THANK YOU!
Just a few highlights from the week:

  • Our amazingly well decorated hallways led by the incredible team of class officers and parent liaisons plus all the volunteers. Check out images on @ahs_dons.
  • The Homecoming Rally was one for the record books - 348 students were involved in class skits this year! Videos of class skits will be available soon along with a HOCO highlight reel.
  • Our community rallying together to support the Food Bank and breaking the 2019 record of 22,000 cans. I am so proud of our community helping to feed others in our county.
  • 900+ students celebrating all together at the HOCO Night Out event - a great way to end the week!
