Hunter's Highlights

Things are really “hopping” around Ardmore High School these days. I want to first thank everyone for making our first ever AMSTI Night a huge success. About 10 minutes before the event began there weren’t many people here and I began to sweat a little, but in typical Ardmore fashion the community came out and supported the school. We are blessed to have such wonderful parent and community support for our school. Our teachers have worked very hard this year and I think a lot of people got to see some of the awesome things happening here at the school. I heard several comments like, “Wow, I wish they had these things when I was in school”, so I believe some of you were as impressed as I have been. I was the most proud of our students that were doing the presentations. They obviously knew their stuff, and did a wonderful job presenting the activities. Coach Sawyer may have had the most interest in his “Make Your Own GAK” lab, but many other classes had some wonderful labs as well.

Along those same lines our Science Club is hosting the second annual DeltaPalooza which is a science fair, battle of the bands, craft show extravaganza. We may have the only event of this kind in the country. If you attended last year you know it was a great event and we are always grateful to be able to promote academics while providing our students with a chance to have a little fun in the process. We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday, May 1, 2010 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

With several of our spring sports coming to an end we have many different team and individual honors that I am afraid to mention them because I don’t want to leave anyone out. Please check out our website to see some of the honors our students have honored. Softball and golf are still playing and we wish all of our students success in what ever endeavor they undertake.

The AHS cheerleaders will host the first ever Top Tiger Competition. The competition takes place at 7pm on Thursday, May 6, in the AHS gym and admission will be $5. This is a new fundraiser where 17 high school men compete for total dominance in verbal communication, style, and group performance. It should be quite an event.

Award’s Day will be May 21, 2010 at 8:00 am in the new gym. We will be honoring our seniors and underclassmen for their academic achievements. This is always a big day for our seniors and their parents. We will be expanding our awards this year to recognize more of our top averages. We are constantly looking for ways to recognize and honor our students.
