BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT, Monday, August 27

Back to School Night starts with 1st period at 6:15 PM and will be followed by eight 8-minute periods.


If you are the parent of a child in ALP or ELP, there will be some meetings prior to the Back to School Night activities.  

ALP parents will meet in Rm 18

ELP parents will meet in the Multi-Purpose Room.

Parents can save themselves some time by printing their student’s Open House Schedule from the Infinite Campus portal. The Open House Schedule will also give the times for each period.  When on the portal, go to Reports and pick Open House Schedule. Otherwise, parents may wait in line in the front lobby to pick up a copy of their son’s/daughter’s open house schedule.

Parents with more than one student at AHS have found it helpful to have their students’ schedules ahead of time, so they can plan their evening.

Back to School Night gives you the opportunity to trace the path your student(s) have at Ames High. By following an abbreviated schedule of classes, you can meet the teachers and hear an overview of each course. When your student has a study hall or open period, you are invited to the cafeteria where representatives from Iowa State, Iowa, UNI, and DMACC will be available.



AHS would also like to make a request for Kleenex donations. Cold and flu season will soon be upon us and we will have a great need for Kleenex in the classrooms with over 1400 students. Kleenex donations can be dropped off in the main office. Thank you in advance for your Kleenex donation.
