December 4, 2020

Good afternoon-
I hope the first two of our full remote days went well for all. I understand there were some technical issues that are being addressed. As a reminder all students are expected to attend class, either synchronously or asynchronously, every day. Teachers will notify students of their expectations through the Google classroom. 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Student Council News:
Game Show Night
This winter, Student Council is hosting a virtual game show night! On December 18th, WACA-TV will be broadcasting a live program of Jeopardy and Family Feud. If students are interested in participating, they should fill out this form (open until December 11th): We have 6 spots for Jeopardy, and 8 for Family Feud. This is a schoolwide event, meant for the whole community to enjoy. We even have some special teacher guests participating! Spread the word!

Poster Contest:
To celebrate school spirit and competition, the Student Council is hosting a poster designing competition this December! The theme for this contest is Hopes and Passions for 2021. The winning submission will be remade into large sized posters to be displayed throughout the school, and the winner will be awarded a $25 amazon gift card. Both computer graphic and hand drawn designs are encouraged! Submissions can be sent as a photo to Designs are due by Friday, Dec. 18, 11:59 PM, and voting will be open the following Monday and Tuesday.   

The AHS Yearbook is hosting a photo contest to get students to share 'What Ashland means to you' in a photo. The submission deadline is December 15th. To enter, students must submit a photo on the yearbook form provided, and explain what the photo means to them. The photo should capture the history, community, landscape, architecture, people, and/or essence of Ashland in a photo. It is not necessary for it to be school based. All entries, regardless of winning the contest, have an opportunity to be displayed prominently in the book along with a photo credit. Click here to submit an entry. One entry per form, no limit to the number of entries per person. Questions? Contact Chad McGowan @
