Good afternoon-

It was great to see so much love and support for Jake today when he visited! #SilverStrong

Next week the AHS nursing and counseling staff will be conducting the Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) protocol, in compliance with state law and in order to help prevent students from starting to use substances, or to intervene with early use, We will be conducting interview-based screening with all ninth grade students about the use of alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs. We will follow the protocol developed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and will utilize the most commonly used substance use screening tool for adolescents in Massachusetts, the CRAFFT. Please review the detailed letter from our nursing department below.  We have also included resources to talk to your student about SBIRT.

Reality Fair
The Ashland High School Student Council will be working with the Framingham Rotary Club on creating a Reality Fair for members of the senior class. The fair will take place on Friday, May 24th, as part of the seniors’ final week of school. This will be the first ever Fair held at the high school.
The purpose of the Reality Fair is to teach students about finances, credit score, and other real world budgeting skills. Students will participate in a number of  activities that will help them develop and manage these financial skills. By choosing an occupation with a corresponding annual salary, students will make life choices pertaining to paying for their food, clothes, appliances, house, and other luxuries.
We need your help! Whether it be parent volunteers to run the “luxury” booth or professionals in the automobile industry helping students choose the best type of transportation, the Fair is a great way to support the community and teach students about everyday expenses. We are looking for: volunteers who have a background in housing and real estate, furniture, health and nutrition, clothing, transportation, charity and community service, career counseling, credit and lending, credit counseling, saving and investing, and insurance. Furthermore, we are looking for additional volunteers (who don’t necessarily have any experience in those fields) to assist in the booths and to help run other aspects of the Fair.
The Student Council is also looking for local businesses and organizations to make donations of $500 or more to go towards the funding of the Fair. For more information or to fill out the donation and volunteer forms, visit or email The Student Council is excited to bring this Reality Fair to life and looks forward to engaging the entire community in this event.  

If you are interested in your student learning more about Financial Literacy please let us know by completing this survey.
