Homecoming is always a fun time for students and alumni and this week has been no exception. Students have participated in various dress up days and the floats in the parade were wonderful. The homecoming court has been announced and Friday night at half-time the new Homecoming Queen will be introduced. Ardmore is bringing back an old tradition of having a homecoming dance for students in grades 9-12. Our football team has worked extremely hard and we are hoping to give the home crowd something to cheer about so please come out and support your Tigers.
It is difficult to believe that the school year is a quarter of the way complete. Students will take nine weeks exams the week of October 4. Parents please remind your students to study and prepare for the exams because they count 20% of the grade for the nine weeks. We wish all of our students luck on their exams and wish them luck for the remainder of the school year.
There is a song that says, “Soon and very soon” and this is my sentiment as it relates to the Parent Portal of I-Now being open. Preparations are currently underway to print and distribute passwords to parents. Please bear with us for just a little while longer and hopefully you will have the passwords. Hopefully it will be worth the wait because you will be able to see the grades, attendance, and discipline for your students. We truly appreciate the hard work of the staff of the central office and Ardmore High School in implementing a new computer program. Equally, we appreciate the patience of the parents because we know it has caused you great inconvenience.
The volleyball County Tournament is upon us and the Area Tournament is right around the corner. Our team has had a great year and they are all to be congratulated with Coach Martin. Our awesome seniors were recently honored at Senior Night and we have truly enjoyed watching these young ladies as they have represented Ardmore for several years on our sports teams. Our footballs teams are continuing to play hard and we are all encouraged by their performance and hard work. We are looking for a very strong finish to the football season so please come out and support the Tigers.
