January 10, 2019

Good evening and happy Friday!

We are down to one week left in the semester.  Students should be checking their schedules for second semester and seeing their counselors if any changes should be made. It's also time to start thinking about next year.  Teachers will start making recommendations on January 22nd.

A reminder that January 18 is a teacher professional day.  There is no school for students.

Grades for Term 2 will close on Friday, January 25, 2019.

Thanks to the generosity of the PTO Ashland High School is once again participating in Challenge Day on February 4!  All students received an email invitation and are encouraged to sign-up if they are interested in attending this day built to break down the barriers and build a positive community.  We will have up to 125 students participate and 30 staff members so there will be a lottery if we have more students interested than spots available.  Parents, we need your help to make this a successful endeavor.  Are you willing to volunteer as a substitute for the day?  We are looking for parents to cover for teachers so they can be a part of this amazing experience.  Email Mrs. St. Coeur at if you can help.  Hours are 8:10am- 2:45pm.  It's a great opportunity to get a look into the experience of your student for a day!

If you have a student in 9th grade please review this message from the AHS nurses.

Student Government Day:
Is your child interested in learning more about how politics works at the state level?  Ashland High School needs to elect two juniors or seniors (one representative and one alternate, who will still participate fully in the day) to participate in "Student Government Day" on Friday, April 5th, 2019.  Students will travel to the State House in Boston, shadowing lawmakers and participating in the legislative process.  For more information, see

Any students interested in running should see Mr. Wiczer in B251 by Wednesday, January 16th.  Students will give speeches over the intercom on Thursday, January 17th (explaining to their peers why they would be a good representative from AHS) and voting will take place on Thursday, January 17th during all three lunches.
