The Ashland Robot Rodeo
Do you and your children enjoy playing with Legos? Would you like an opportunity to build and play with robots of various shapes and sizes? This amazing opportunity is being given to you on Nov 21st at the first annual Robot Rodeo being held at Ashland High School in the cafeteria. Bring your daughters, sons, nieces nephews and neighbors! All ages welcome. Running from 10:30am - 3pm, the high school robotics club will be holding this amazing event to teach kids cool STEM concepts while they play. Take a robot through an obstacle course, learn basic coding concepts even as young as 3 years old by programming our human 'robots'. Test your skills in our Sphero skills course. Build and play with a Lego Mindstorms robot. Be introduced to the Makey Makey and more! Entry is just $5. Lunch and snacks will also be available on site. Contact Chad McGowan with question or if you would like to donate or volunteer to the program.

The Leos Club will be collecting small, travel-sized toiletry items to donate to local family shelters. Items can be sent in to be placed in the donation box outside of the main office. Thank you in advance for your support!

Some of our second floor teachers are looking for used tennis balls on the feet of all student chairs and desks.  If you have any old tennis balls available to donate please drop them by the AHS office!

Tickets are now on sale for the AHSTS production of The Girl From Maxim's.

Summary: Enjoy all the frivolity, the gaiety, and the energy of Paris with the master of farce and a cavalcade of comic characters!

A normally sober doctor awakens to find that he brought two things home from Maxim's last night: a hangover and a woman. His wife is diverted from discovering the woman by one of her famous visitations from a popular saint. The doctor's uncle returns after a long army tour in Africa and promptly mistakes the lady from Maxim's for his nephew's wife. Uncle's immediate business is marrying off a niece to a young soldier who turns out to be the true lover of the lady from Maxim's. Everybody is invited to the ceremony at the uncle's chateau where all courses collide. The master of farce unravels the confusion happily and innocently!

The production runs Friday, November 6th and Saturday, November 7th at 7PM, Sunday, November 8th at 2PM. Patrons may buy tickets in advance online at AHSTS offers discounted tickets purchased online. All seating is reserved. For more information or tickets, visit

On Tuesday, October 27th at 7pm in the Ashland High School Library, the Decisions at Every Turn (DAET) Coalition and the Friends of the Ashland Public Library will be hosting a Community Discussion titled:  Social, Emotional, and Mental Health – How to Support your Child through the School Years.
