October 13, 2017

Happy Friday-

I started the morning today once again working with the Peer Leaders.  They are fantastic to work with and I am so excited for the entire school community to hear Jamele Adams speak next Tuesday.  His message of Love, Inclusion, and Trust is powerful and the kids respond so well.  I hope you all join us at AHS on Tuesday, October 24 at 6:30pm for our next Courageous Conversation hosted by Jamele.  It is so inspiring to see the students talk about making Ashland a more accepting, inclusive community.

Wednesday, October 18 is an Early Release Day.  Students are released at 12:35am and lunch is served.

It is also picture retake day.  Pictures & id's were distributed to students on Thursday this week.

The Ashland High School Student Council is getting ready for a full week of Homecoming events on October 15th - October 21st.

Check out the Homecoming commercial!

On Sunday, October 15th, we are running a pancake breakfast from 9am to 11am in the high school cafeteria.  All you can eat pancakes, sausage, juice/coffee/hot chocolate for just $5 per person.  This event is open to the entire community and all are welcome!

Then oFriday, October 20th, prior to the football game the Student Council is running a  "tailgate" barbecue in the small parking lot outside the stadium at the high school from 4pm - 6:30pmopen to the entire community.  Join us for burgers (veggie burgers available), hot dogs, chips, ice-cream sandwiches, and dessert and chips for $8 per person.  There will also be games (KanJam and SpikeBall) and face painting.  

The Homecoming Football game will be played at 7pm at Millis High School.   (Unfortunately, due to scheduling difficulties, the game is not at home.)    There will be a fan-bus available for students.  Tickets will be sold at lunch for $8 (including the bus ride and admission to the game) until Thursday, October 19th.  A package deal, including the bus-ride, admission to the game, and admission to the tailgate barbecue ahead of time will be sold for $16.
