Hunter's Highlights

This is a busy time of year at Ardmore High School. Actually there isn’t a time of year that isn’t pretty busy, but this is an especially busy time. The Thanksgiving Holiday is past and Christmas is right around the corner. Holiday activities abound in addition to our normal activities making this time of year wonderfully active.

 Ardmore students are always ready to help those in need and the holiday season is an opportunity for them to show their compassion. Our Sr. Beta Club and our Spanish Club are collecting food and other items for needy families in our area. If you would like to help either of these groups please feel free to contact the school for more details.

 Our band recently finished a very successful marching season and the annual Christmas Concert is a great transition in to concert season. We are looking forward to our Christmas Concert this year which will coincide with a silent auction to help raise funds for our band. We encourage everyone to come out and support Mr. Bowman and our band.

 We are always looking for a way to encourage students to bring in their boxtops to earn money for the school. Students raised $1000 worth of boxtops to earn the right to wear Halloween costumes to school. Now we are having a competition to see which room can raise the most money by boxtops (or cash) and the winner will earn a free lunch from Zaxby’s. We are excited about this competition and our students seem to be looking forward to a break from their normal lunch routine.

 Every year Ardmore High School honors our retired teachers. This year was no exception and we had several former school employees return to join us and tell stories of past experiences. We always enjoy this day and the retirees seem to also enjoy the camaraderie they experience. A special thanks goes out to Ms. Walker for coordinating this event as she does every year.

I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. We have a lot to be thankful for at Ardmore High School. We have a wonderful student body and a great faculty and staff. Our parents are very supportive and we have a community that cares about the school.

Many times society tends to focuses on the negative aspects of schools and young people, but let us not forget about the wonderfully positive things that take place every day in school. Our students as a whole are very caring and have learned to treat others as they want to be treated. On behalf of Ardmore High School I want to wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving Holiday.

Crystal Apple Award

Congratulations to Linda Rolin for receiving the WAY-FM Crystal Apple Award for November. Mrs. Rolin was nominated by Justin Mealer who wrote a heart-warming essay that enabled Mrs. Rolin to win this award. It is great when our teachers get recognized for the impact they have on the lives of our young people.

Alert Now Call November 19

Hello parents this is Tommy Hunter, principal at Ardmore High School. Tomorrow, November 20, we will be taking our 7,8, and 9th grade students to Tanner High School to attend a bullying program from a nationally renown speaker.

You do not need to do anything for your child to attend, but if you do NOT want your child to attend send a letter to school stating you do not want your child to attend the program. Once again you do not need to do anything in order for your child to attend, but if you do NOT want your child to attend send a letter stating that you do not want your child to attend the program.
