AHS Announcements

B Day

Thursday, April 27, 2017

 

 

This Saturday, April 29th, the Ashland High School Student Council is running a Fundraiser at Barnes and Noble in Framingham.

Throughout the day, members of the Student Council will be reading their favorite children's books.  Please come join us (and bring your kids) for story-time!

For any purchases made at Barnes and Noble with the attached voucher (on the flyer), the AHS Student Council will receive a percent of the proceeds.  The voucher is good at any Barnes and Noble on Saturday, April 29th and is also good online at bn.com (and is valid online from April 29th - May 4th.)

In addition to story-time, local author and AHS guidance counselor Jenn McMahon will be joining us at 11am to read from her newly published book Bohermore.  She will also sign copies and lead a discussion on the author's craft.

Finally, Barnes and Noble will have a display of various books that we are hoping to add to the high school's library collection.  These will be on display in the store, and we're hoping that a few generous patrons will purchase some of these books for our library.

Practice CD's are available to loan from the guidance office for students taking SAT Subject Tests in world languages.  See Mr. Garrigan if you'd like to borrow one.

 

The Diversity Club will meet after school in the library.  

 

The Games Club will be meeting Friday after school in Guidance. All are welcome!

 

Join the newspaper club for a fundraiser at Ashland Ale House on Tuesday May, 2 for dinner! 15% of the dinner proceeds will be donated back to the Union Street Journal. See Ms. Jankowski for a flyer.

 

Who will be this year's Mr. Ashland?  To find out  - and maybe win raffle prizes - attend the Mr. Ashland show this Thursday 4/27 at 7pm.  Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door.  Proceeds support the senior class.

 

A local non- profit organization,Home2Homes, needs volunteers! This agency provides clothing, household items, and baby necessities to area shelters and families in need.

The Ashland Community Gardens is seeking volunteers as they repair their garden beds and prepare for planting season.   If you are interested in helping out, they will be working on this project on Saturday April 29th from 10-5 PM or Sunday April 30th starting at 10 AM.  If this is something you are interested in, please see the Community service board outside Mrs. Shiels’ office for contact information.

 

Students taking Advanced Placement tests are expected to be in school for the entire day of their AP test.  If they have a morning test, they are expected to be in class after the test in the afternoon.  If they have an afternoon test, they are expected to attend school in the morning at the normal time.  There are no exceptions to this expectation.

 

Attention all freshmen: tickets are now on sale for the freshman class dance, happening this Friday, April 28th from 7pm to 10pm in the AHS cafeteria.  Tickets are $10 at the door but can be purchased in advance from the class officers during lunch for only $7.  If you are bringing a freshmen from another school, a form needs to be completed by this Wednesday and can be picked up at the main office.  If you have any questions, see your class officers or class adviser Mr. McGann.
