Happy Thanksgiving

Good afternoon and Happy Thanksgiving!

As always this short week was filled with spirit and the opportunity to reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for at Ashland High School.  I am so grateful to work in a community of students that care so deeply about each other and strives every day to make AHS a great place to learn. Today's Pep Rally was kicked off with a reminder of all of the amazing acts of community service all of our clubs participate in.  Here are just a few of the pictures.

Pep rally fun!
Students of the Term!

Last night was our annual hall decorating contest:

From the Athletic Department:
Dear Clockers,

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we wanted to touch base with you regarding the annual football game that Ashland is hosting against Hopkinton.  We have been closely monitoring the weather and are on as originally scheduled for Thursday with a 10:00AM kickoff.  

The forecast says that this could be one of the coldest Thanksgivings on record and we have taken the following steps to ensure safety at the game.
  • The cafeteria will be available throughout the game as a warming station
  • The restrooms inside the gym hallway will be available throughout the game
  • Heaters have been secured for both sidelines to offer the players and coaches some added heat down on the field.
  • Hot Chocolate will be served at the concession stand
We hope to see many people at the game.  If you are coming, we strongly encourage you to "layer up." 

We will continue to monitor the weather and discuss the safety of all involved as the game gets closer.  

Thank you and as always...GO CLOCKERS!

Does your student ride the bus? Please see the link below if they do. Another bus is being added.
Anticipated changes to High School/Middle School Routes

Breaking the Barriers is currently partnering with Hammer and Chisel and Net of Compassion to collect clothes for a street store, a pop-up shop for the homeless where they can "shop" for free. During this cold, holiday season, the homeless are suffering more than ever. A gently used clothing item from the back of your closet could make all the difference when trying to keep warm in the harsh, New England weather. Please send your clothing donations with your child to school; there are collection bins by the front and back doors of the high school. Please see the attached flyer for information on most needed items!

Have a happy & healthy Thanksgiving!!!
