December 7, 2018

Good afternoon-
Only a few quick reminders this week. 

The AHS Band Barnes & Noble Bookfair is tonight at 6:45pm.  Swing by Barnes & Noble in Framingham for some great family entertainment and a portion of your purchases will support the band.

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! Donations are being collected through 12/10/18.

Please join us for:
12/13/18- Minding Your Mind presentation-We will host two student presentations during day and invite the entire Ashland community to join us for a presentation in evening. This presentation is "an interactive presentation on mental health, designed to train both adults and youth on how to recognize the warning signs of stress, anxiety, depression, and crisis. Just Talk About It will educate parents, adolescents, and the adults who support them to look beyond stigma and notice warning signs in themselves and their peers... participants will come to understand ways to assist others, how to cultivate positive coping skills, and ways to ask for help."

Check out event details here! Preregistration is NOT required but we would love to have an idea of how many will be attending.

12/18/18- visit from South African students through Hammer & Chisel. We are excited to 
welcome visiting students from South Africa for the school day.  Students will spend the day shadowing our AHS students. We are looking forward to a great experience learning about 
education on the other side of the world.T
