2022-2023 Third Quarter – Events & Dates

As the door closes on AOA’s second quarter, let’s have a glimpse ahead at all the events we have to look forward to for the next few months. As we’ll be switching over to autumn, the focus of our clubs will lean more towards raising money for their own budgets; however, in the case of clubs banding together, those profits and donations will be split evenly between the groups involved. For Ozone Day and Cleanup Day, the poetry club and dance team are supporting the environmental club by raising awareness and funds for charity. Show your school spirit and support your club!

This list includes days off from school and clubs, special club-hosted events, festivals, practice start dates, games, and meets. Names of plays will be in italics, sports events will be in bold, and days off/half days will be in bold italics. Events in pink require a ticket purchase; all other events are free to attend.
