Hunter's Highlights

Ardmore students are compassionate and always willing to help people in need. Our Jr. Beta Club is helping raise money for the Soles4Souls program which provides shoes for underprivileged people around the world that are unable to buy shoes. If you would like to participate, please see one of the Jr. Beta Club members or keep an eye on the website for more details.

Governor Bob Riley has proclaimed October 18-22 as Alabama School Bus Safety Week. Alabama School Bus Safety Week which is an active, continuing public education program designed to promote school bus safety. We truly appreciate everything our bus drivers do to safely transport our students every day.

Every season is full of activity and fall is no exception! Fall sports are finishing up and winter sports are on the horizon. Football and volleyball are both on a hot streak and we thank everyone for your support. Our volleyball team plays Thursday, October 21, in the Sub-State game at 4:30 in Jacksonville. Our girls have had a great season and we are hoping to continue to the state tournament in Pelham. Football has won their last four games and is looking forward to playing Central of Florence on Friday, October 22, 2010.

Parents may come and pick up your passwords for the Parent Portal of I-Now. This will allow you to view your child's information concerning grades, discipline, and attendance. On Monday, October 18, 2010 passwords will be available for students in grades 10-12. On Tuesday, October 19, 2010 passwords will be available for students in grades 6-8. Passwords may be picked up in the front office during school hours. After these two days passwords will be available daily in the front office. Due to the confidential nature of the information parents must personally pick up the information. If you can't come during school hours please call and set up a time to come and pick up your password. Thanks for your continued patience in this matter.

The state of Alabama has begun a new program to help students struggling with grades. The national program known as Response to Intervention will be known as Response to Instruction (RTI) in the state of Alabama. Ardmore High School is a pilot school for Limestone County and is currently implementing the RTI program. RTI identifies students needing help and attempts to intervene in order to help the struggling student. Some of you may have received a letter in the mail stating your student would be receiving interventions. If you have more questions please give us a call.
