We have new drop-off and pick-up areas. In order to provide a greater level of safety, there are two designated areas for pick-up and drop-off. The gym parking lot is for westbound traffic, while the student parking lot is for eastbound traffic. There is no parking or stopping in front of the school office or Beede Auditorium. We appreciate your help in using these improved areas, which ensure the safety of students entering the school campus and secure the bike path.
AHS grad and "Sharknado" director Anthony Ferrante (second from left) shot his new thriller at several spots on our campus over the weekend. He also spoke with the 30-some students who joined the fun and cast them in various background shots. It was an interesting and hands-on experience, especially for our Media-Tech Academy students. For the next couple weeks, Ferrante and his crew will be filming around Antioch - a little tribute to his hometown.
We're happy to welcome our new and returning students to Antioch High, home of the Panthers. Built in 1955, our school has a long history of pride, spirit, academic and athletic excellence and strong community. We're in the midst of renovating our 60-year-old school.

Last year we saw the beautiful unveiling of our fabulous Eells Stadium and the office-library building. Here's wishing you a fantastic school year.

Antioch High's original 1955 office was taken down in early August to make way for a spacious cafeteria and inviting quad area. The modernization of those two areas is set to be done by late 2017. Also, the entire 1100 hall and vintage library will be transformed into a media center, while the remainder of the halls and classrooms will be finished. Those upgrades should be complete by spring of 2017. The campus-wide renovation is made possible by voters passing Bond Measure B.
Jim Harbaugh and his Michigan University coaching team held a football camp at Antioch High for some 200 student athletes on June 23. The two-hour event was held on Eells Field with parents and Harbaugh fans in the bleachers. The top-notch camp featured an array of drills, tips and hands-on work with the coaches. Members of Antioch High's championship football team were on hand, as well as coaches including head coach John Lucido and principal Louie Rocha. The
No. 1 recruit in the nation, AHS running back Najee Harris, worked one-on-one with a Michigan coach during the session.
Antioch High held its first Buddy Club Prom, which beautifully mixed its special ed students with traditional learners. The prom, held in the school's vintage library, featured testimonials from mentors, awards, scholarships, food, photos and music. The club is the brainchild of junior Savannah Vanderzwan, who came up with the concept so that "all students" could enjoy the high school experience. In addition to the weekly meetings, the club has had several special gatherings and field trips. Teacher Andy Lemos is the advisor. Principal Louie Rocha was impressed by the students who coordinated the event and said "I'm proud to be the principal of AHS."
Antioch High hosted its annual Scholarship Night on May 10 in Beede Auditorium. The stage was filled with about 65 students, who received more about $72,000 in scholarships. Friends and family came out to celebrate the seniors, who were honored with about 125 scholarships by a variety of individuals, memorials, annual, alum, businesses and community. Special thanks to the Antioch Community Scholarship Fund committee, which worked tirelessly with College & Career lead Kashauna Clipps and Vice Principal Lindsay Wisely to make the event a success, and, to the Class of 1966 for its generous scholarships.
Everybody wants to be part of Panther Country, including Coach Jim Harbaugh, who would love to have our Najee Harris become a Michigan Wolverine. Harbaugh paid a visit to AHS on Jan. 19 and meet with Harris (the No. 1 high school running back), along with Wolverine defensive line coach Greg Mattison, Jay Harbaugh, principal Louie Rocha, offensive coordinator Brett Dudley and head coach John Lucido. In mid-December Harris was visited by the head coaches from Notre Dame and Cal Berkeley.
Our mighty Panthers put up a tough fight against Foothill in the NCS semi-finals on Nov. 28. The Pleasanton team edged out AHS by 55-54 in the last minute of the game. One veteran preps sports editor said it was one of the "greatest high school games" he'd ever seen. The football team ends this tremendous season with an 11-0 record; the best since 1977. We applaud the team and coaches for an amazing job, and students and staff for the fabulous support and spirit. Go, Panthers!

This mighty trio was honored during Antioch's citizen of the year awards. Treyvon Hall, a junior, won the top youth title and $1,000 scholarship, while junior Savannah Vanderzwan was runner-up, earning a $750 prize. Senior Aimie McGoldrick was an honored nominee. Held at Lone Tree Event Center, the three were impressive, inspiring and humble. Big congrats to all!
