March 1, 2019

Good afternoon!

I hope you have had a chance this week to look at your student's course recommendations for the 2019-2020 school year. Please approve these recommendations as well as  their chosen electives at your earliest convenience.  The window for parent approval of course recommendations is open and will remain open until Friday, March 8.  We ask that all parents look at their child's recommendations and check off your approval.  The Quickguide below walks you through the process.

AHS Override Procedure
Teachers spend a considerable amount of time determining what’s best for students in their
subject for the next school year.  They evaluate students performance, test scores, higher
level thinking, math, reading, and writing aptitude, and a host of other variables. Parents
disagreeing with a core course recommendation and wishing a different course level
for their child must follow the attached procedures.

We hope you will join us at Courageous Conversations: Conversation Vs. Confrontation on Monday, March 4 at Ashland High School from 7-9pm. This is a world cafe style evening of conversation which will include poetry performed by Jamele Adams, Dean of Students at Brandeis. In light of the recent occurrence of antisemitism at AHS this is an opportunity to talk about how we handle words and symbols of hate and make sure that all members of the community feel safe and respected.

Ashland High School will once again host a blood drive on Monday, March 11 from 12-5pm in the gym.  We welcome parents to sign up starting at 3pm.  To sign up go the and type in the Sponsor Code – AshlandHigh65.  

Medfield High School's Student Council is hosting a Putting For Patients event.  The Ashland community has been in their thoughts because of the connection to the Jimmy Fund so they wanted to share the event and invite us all to join.  Please consider signing up if you can!
