November 9, 2018

Good afternoon from Providence airport-

I am so excited to be heading to Orlando, FL for my 4th opportunity to volunteer at Give Kids the World with 34 members of the Make-A-Wish Club. It is such an inspiration to watch these students spend the week volunteering to help children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. 

End of Term 1! 
The year is flying by! iParent/iStudent is closed for the week, including Progress Reports.
Grades will be opened next Friday, November 16 after 3pm should all go as planned.  As a reminder, GPA and decile rank are not shared with students until after they have completed their sophomore year.  Students who are new to AHS will not be ranked by decile until they have completed four semesters at AHS.

AHS Blood drive and ECG screenings
On Monday, November 19 we will have a "health day" at AHS where students and community members can get their heart health checked and then give the gift of potential health to someone by donating blood.  

Dear Students and Parents,
Ashland HS is pleased to announce a heart screening program being offered on Monday, November 19th during the school day. The program will be provided by Mass HeartBeat, a local organization that specializes in ECG heart
screening. Mass Heartbeat brings their state-of-the-art ECG technology directly to the school to
provide an optional, non-invasive, and affordable screening that can help detect underlying issues
in the heart. The ECG tracings are interpreted by an experienced cardiologist and the results will
be returned within 5 business days.
Students who are interested must sign up for a time slot and register:

We will also be participating in a blood drive through the American Red Cross on November 19 from 12-5pm. Students will have the opportunity to donate from 12-3pm then we will open to the public fronm 3-5pm.  We need you to make this another great community event!
The public can visit and use Sponsor Code AshlandHigh65 to sign themselves up from 3p-5p.  All presenting donors will receive a T-Shirt!
