Activities are beginning to pick up at Ardmore High School. Teachers are busy making a difference in the lives of our students and making sure our students have outstanding educational opportunities.
One of our new teachers is Mrs. Lacy Williams who teaches Family and Consumer Sciences. We are very fortunate to have Mrs. Williams here to help our students and are extremely excited about the direction our FACS program is heading. Working with Mrs. Graham, our Agriculture teacher, we know our vocational department will soar to new heights.
Our Yearbook Staff is encouraging our students and faculty to “Dress for Success” this year in our school pictures. They have begun a clever marketing plan and have posters all over campus. They thought it would be good for students to dress up and make Picture Day a special occasion. We are excited to see how great our students look when they dress for success on September 4.
Our new gym is coming along very nicely and we will be announcing the grand opening in a matter of days. We are currently thinking that it will be toward the end of September, but we anticipate a specific date to be announced very soon. I believe the gym will be something the community of Ardmore will be proud to call their own.
Our fall sports teams are in full swing. We have teams playing multiple times during the week and we invite you to come out and support our band and athletes as they compete this fall. We are very proud of our students and the things they are able to accomplish. Students who participate in extracurricular activities typically perform better in school and have a more positive school experience. They need our help and support in order to achieve their goals.
