I can't believe we are here already. At the beginning of March it always seems like April vacation is so far away and then it is suddenly upon us. From here the rest of the year flies by.
As a reminder, grades for Term 3 are now posted in iParent/iStudent.
The AHS office will be closed next week. I am heading off to chaperone the student trip to the Mediterranean. Please feel free to follow our adventures on the AHS MedCoast blog which is linked to the AHS homepage.
A reminder that 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.
Senior Parents: Once we return from vacation we will start sharing out information on graduation! Seniors are done with classes on Friday, May 19th. Their exams start the following week and Friday, May 26 is a mandatory class community service day.
As you start to plan remember that graduation is open to all, there is no guest limit. Class Day, on Friday, June 2 at 9:30am is another wonderful event and families are encouraged to attend!
On Saturday, April 29th, the Student Council will be running a fundraiser at the Framingham Barnes and Noble. For any purchase made with a voucher (click link to get voucher) the Student Council will get a percent of the sale. If you've been planning on purchasing a few books and can wait until April 29th, come join us there!
Throughout the day, starting at 9am, members of the Students Council will be hosting "story time" for younger children, reading some of their favorite childhood books. (Go Dog Go, Corduroy, The Giving Tree, and many others....) Come join us and bring your children to enjoy!
In addition, at 11am local author and AHS guidance counselor Jenn McMahon will be reading selections from her recently published book Bohermore. She'll also be signing copies and leading a discussion on the author's craft. (This is in addition to her book signing on Sunday, April 23rd.)
You can also order books through the Barnes and Noble website (bn.com) from April 29th through May 2nd using the voucher code, and the same percentage off the purchase will go to the AHS Student Council.
Want something special and personalized to celebrate graduation? The junior class is selling personalized AHS graduation yard signs made by Jostens! The signs are designed to be personalized with the senior's name and you may elect to add the college or future plan of the graduate. See the attached order form or pick one up in the office. Orders can be turned into the office until and the yard signs will arrive at the beginning of senior week. Any questions, email Christine Graham (firstname.lastname@example.org)
