Wednesday, January 23 will be the last day to register to participate in Challenge Day.  We need a diverse group of students from all grades.  Please consider signing up!  See your email from Ms. St. Coeur to register.  


Looking for students for recycling after school today for community service! Please meet in Ms. Hogan’s room after school if you’re interested.


Model UN Movie Marathon Announcement
Next week is midterms, but are you stuck in the school with nothing to do after your last midterm test? Come down to the Model UN Club’s Movie Marathon in the auditorium where movies will be played on the projector and snacks like popcorn, candy, chips, and others will be sold! Relax with friends after the tests while admission is completely free! The Movie Marathon is happening every day of Midterms Week, each after the last test of the day and up until 2:45. Hope you can come!


Today at lunch, please stop by the Student Council tables outside the cafeteria and vote for a student to represent Ashland High School in Student Government Day.  You will hear a speech from each candidate after break.


Calling all AHS Students! We invite you to study for your mid-terms at the Ashland Public Library. Snacks and drinks will be provided, as well as a stress relief station.


Have you always wanted to play an instrument?  Have you been meaning to get more involved in school?  Join the Choirchime Ensemble! The first rehearsal will be Wednesday February 6 at 3pm in the Choir Room.  Students and faculty are welcome. See Mrs. Nemeth for more information.  


Attention Girls Tennis Players:

If you are interested in interviewing to be captain of the Girls Tennis team, please stop by the Athletic Office and pick up the application packet from Mr. Marks. Applications must be returned to the Athletic Office by Friday, January 18th.


Are you interested in learning more about how politics works at the state level?  Consider participating in Student Government Day on Friday, April 5th, 2019.  Ashland High School needs to elect two juniors or seniors (one representative and one alternate, who will still participate fully in the day) to participate in this event at the State House in Boston, shadowing lawmakers and participating in the legislative processes.  For more information or to sign up to run, see Mr. Wiczer in B251 by Wednesday, January 16th.  Speeches and elections will take place on Thursday, January 17th.


Imagine a school where everyone feels safe, loved and celebrated. Imagine enemies finding common ground and making peace; friends healing past hurts and making amends; people igniting their passion for service and leadership; adults and youth working together to create a school where everyone is included and thrives. This is Challenge Day.

Ashland High School will once again participate in Challenge Day on Monday, February 4, 2019.  Students, check your email and sign-up if you are interested in joining.  We are looking for 100 students to participate.  A lottery will be held if we have more students than we can accommodate.

If you participated last year and want to serve as a student leader please let us know as well.

Ashland and Hopkinton Wrestling Teams Join Forces


Ms. McMahon is looking for a team of beta-readers for her next novel. It’s a 
paranormal thriller set at the ruins of the Medfield State Hospital, formerly known as the Medfield Insane Asylum. Think Shutter Island meets Riverdale.
If you are interested in participating in this manuscript critique group, visit Ms. McMahon in the counseling office, sign up on her board, or email her by next Wednesday.
Meetings will be held weekly for one hour after school on a day that benefits the most members. 
Consider this valuable activity as an addition to your college apps!
