Last day of school

Good afternoon & happy last day of school!

It is so hard to believe the 2016-2017 school year has come to an end. It was both a wonderful & challenging year and I am grateful to have the opportunity to work in such an amazing community.  I hope you all have a restful summer and we look forward to seeing you in August!  The school times schedule shared by Superintendent Adams is available here.

Term 4 and Final grades are now open in iStudent and  iParent.  GPA & decile rank will be available in the next few days once we check for accuracy.  Members of the Classes of 2018 and 2019 will now have access to that information.  

Guidance counselors are available until June 28.  Please call or email to schedule an appointment.

Summer hours for the building are 8am-2:45pm.  It's always best to call or email first to make sure someone is here if you need assistance.

I will be out of the building enjoying some professional development and family time for the month of July.  We will get back in the swing of things in early August.  Schedules will be mailed to 9th grade students and available on iStudent for all others sometime after the first week of August.  Stay tuned for a date!

Peer Leader program:
The mission of the Peer Leadership-Freshman Advisory program is to help students with the transition from middle school to high school.  The goal of the program is to establish a foundation for success in meeting the school-wide academic, social, and civic expectations set forth in AHS’s mission statement.  Junior & senior leaders will work with 9th grade students to introduce them to the core values and culture of AHS and in doing so encourage positive decision making.  Students will give up one study hall or wellness class a cycle to join a 9th grade wellness class and lead transition activities. Peer leaders will also support the entire school community in Positive Behavior Support Team initiatives. Current Peer Leaders do not need to reapply. Interested students should complete a application and return it to Ms. St. Coeur ASAP via email.

The National Honor Society is looking for recent grads to donate their blue gowns.  We especially need the smaller sizes (heights below 5'9").  There is a box in the main office where they may be dropped off over the summer.

Foundation for MetroWest is now recruiting high school students for its fall Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) programs in Natick and Sudbury, and we would love to have Ashland High students participate. 

YIP (informational flyer attached) is a free leadership program now in its 20th year of teaching local youth about the needs and assets of our community; students do not have to have any experience with community service or be from either Natick or Sudbury to join. Over the course of 17 sessions, participants will work as a team to award $10,000 in grants to youth-serving nonprofits.

·         YIP Natick will meet Thursdays from 7-8:30pm starting Sept. 14
·         YIP Sudbury will meet Tuesdays from 7-8:30pm starting Sept. 19
·         The deadline to apply is August 25
