Amnesty believes that "when we all act together, we are more powerful”, which is why the AHS Chapter of Amnesty International is calling upon the members of the Ashland High community to aid with our annual Write For Rights campaign. Write for Rights is the world's biggest human rights event, and this global campaign demands justice and human rights for all. The cases you will read about showcase individuals and groups who have had their human rights taken away from them. Around the world, people have disappeared, been attacked, or imprisoned for acts that we believe to be their unalienable rights. Therefore, each year, millions of individuals write letters, sign petitions, and organize events to demand that people be freed and justice be served. It works, and the world becomes a better place because of these actions. These people need your help, and every action counts! Write for Rights is a simple, yet effective, way that you can make a difference! Here’s the link to our website where you can find instructions on how to help! Many teachers are also willing to give extra credit, and NHS members can earn community service hours for the letters that they write! https://sites.google.com/ashland.k12.ma.us/write-for-rights/home?authuser=0

Students interested in taking Spring SAT Prep classes can go to the Ashland Community Education website for more information at: http://www.ashland.k12.ma.us/community-education. You can also call or email Jeannie Young, jyoung@ashland.k12.ma.us or call 508-881-0143.

 Do you have what it takes to become our next Clocker Idol?  This year's Clocker Idol (our version of American Idol) will be a "virtual" event.  All performances will be pre-recorded with judging and voting happening in real-time.  Anyone interested in auditioning for "Season 7 of Clocker Idol" should record a 45-60 second video of themselves singing (either unaccompanied, accompanying themselves instrumentally, or with an instrumental backing track playing).  Submissions will be judged based on vocal skill, preparation, and stage presence.  Videos must be shared (via Google Drive) with the Student Council account (stuco.ashland@ashland.k12.ma.us) by Friday, January 15th at 11:59pm.     To see what last year's Clocker Idol looked like, check out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuXVFtH3Q78
