Parent/Teacher Communication

The following link has a good article about Parent/Teacher Communication. Please feel free to check out the link. I believe communication between parents and teachers is one of the most important factors in school success.

Academic Pep Rally

We are constantly looking for ways to recognize the academic achievements of our students. We are trying something new this year on April 22, 2011 in the New Gym we will be having an Academic Pep Rally. This will be like other Pep Rallies in that we will have the band playing and cheerleaders leading cheers, but it will be unique because we are honoring our academic teams and those students with good attendance and grades.

This is a new event for us and we are excited about the opportunity. We will be recognizing out Scholar's Bowl Teams, Beta Clubs, students with exemplary attendance, just to name a few. Dr. Carroll will also be on hand to present the student body with the Limestone County Academic Trophy.


Our second annual AMSTI night will be held April 18, 2011. We ask that parents meet in the cafeteria at 6:00pm for a brief orientation meeting and then we will be visiting rooms our students are using for their experiments.

AMSTI Night highlights the activities our students engage in during their math and science classes. Our students are learning by doing and this is evident by the activities that are on display during AMSTI Night. The best thing about AMSTI Night is the students get to be the teachers and show everyone what they have learned. If you did not make it last year we invite you out this year, and I think you will be very pleased to see what a great job the students do with these activities.

Senior High Scholar's Bowl

Scholar's Bowl at Ardmore High School has a long tradition of excellence. This year Ardmore won the county competition for the fourth time out of the last five years. Our students work hard to achieve this high level of competition and we are very proud of them for their efforts.

Mr. Lewis was the sponsor for several years and Ms. Daly was his assistant, and Ms. Daly has done a great job taking over the team since Mr. Lewis moved to assistant principal. We want to congratulate Ms. Daly and the team for their fine achievement.
