Two local organizations, Decisions at Every Turn and the Ashland Farmer’s Market, are each looking for an intern to help them with their website and social media pages.  If your student is interested they should forward their resume to me and I will share it with the organizations through the Ashland Business Association internship program.  The internship agreement page is shared here.

Students interested in learning Karate can take free classes after school at the high school.  We are offering a free trial the month of April, if you decide you would like to continue we will be offering Karate lessons at the high school twice a week, Mondays & Wednesdays from 2:50-3:50.  If you are interested please e-mail or call Jeannie Young, Ashland Community Ed. at 508-881-0143 or  There are flyers in the Main Office & Guidance.

As students consider their summer plans, consider the Great Jewish Books Summer Program, which brings rising high school juniors and seniors to the Yiddish Book Center to read and discuss modern Jewish literature.

Great Jewish Books is a one-of-a-kind opportunity, full of social, cultural, and recreational opportunities (and no grades) for students who are eager to meet fellow booklovers, get a taste of college life, and discover the treasures of the Jewish canon. No specific background—no knowledge of languages or particular writers or Jewish religious or cultural heritage—is required. Every admitted student receives a scholarship for the full cost of tuition, room, board, books, and special events.

We are accepting applications on a rolling basis. Space in the program is limited, so the sooner a student applies, the better. Two program sessions are offered this summer: July 21–26 and July 28–August 2. For details and the application, visit:

We want every teenager who loves to read and has an interest in Jewish culture to know about this opportunity—will you help us spread the word?
