Welcome to Alvarado High School!  I am starting my 25th year with Alvarado ISD and my 17th year as the lead school counselor at Alvarado High School.  I was a teacher and cheer sponsor at the high school for five years, spent two years at the junior high as a school counselor, one year with the district as technology director, and then came back home to the high school as a counselor.  My husband Jimmy is the discipline officer for the high school and is also a varsity football and golf coach.  My oldest Jax is a senior at Texas Tech majoring in mechanical engineering and my youngest Brey is a sophomore at AHS this year. Go Indians!

Last Chance for Senior Pictures in Yearbook

Monday, October 30th, is the last chance for senior pictures to be taken at the high school by Prestige in order to be in the yearbook. Pictures will start at 8 am and will go until about 3 pm. Any and all seniors in dual, early release, late arrival, etc., need to get their picture done by this date. Seniors can check into the office that day to find out what classroom is being used for senior pictures. This is the last chance for seniors to get their picture in the yearbook. You do not have to purchase the pictures from Prestige to have them take your picture for the yearbook. But in order to be in the yearbook, each senior needs a picture taken by Prestige. Students or parents with questions may contact Laura Stephens at laurast@alvaradoisd.net.

The Student Loan Report

(This information is shared with parents as a courtesy and not as an endorsement of the organization).
 
Hi there,

My name is Allie Thompson and I work with The Student Loan Report. The Student Loan Report helps keep students and their families up-to-date on the latest student loan and financial aid news and information so they can make the best decisions when it comes to paying for college and repaying debt.

We provide unbiased coverage on the latest student loan news that may affect students. We also create resources and guides for borrowers and their families so they make the best decisions when it comes to paying for college and repaying student debt.

A huge part of smart student borrowing and repayment is simply staying on top of what changes are being made day-to-day and understanding how those changes affect borrowers. I think our site does a great job at this and is really beneficial for students and parents.

Would you be willing to share our website with your students and families? I think it would be a huge benefit and could really help them out in dealing with the financial aid process, including student loans and more.

Thanks for your time and I hope the rest of your week goes well!

Best,
Allie
