RETURNING COMPUTERS DURING FINALS WEEK.

All students must turn in their laptop, case, and chargers next week after they are finished with their finals.   If they don’t need them for their finals, they can turn them in earlier. There will be time between test, and also before and after school to do this.   Students should not be turning in computers during the actual testing times, only during breaks and before and after school.

Students who still wish to participate in Driver’s education this summer can sign up at Streetsmart’s North Grand Mall classroom.  This is the same company that does Ames High School classes. There are still spots available in the July classes.  Registration is online, so google streetsmarts drivers ed.

To wrap up Teacher Appreciation Week, here is a small sampling of what teachers said they did for students:

I had a student in first period who struggled with getting to school on time. On my way to school, I would pick him up and bring him so he would make it!

One of my seniors moved in with me at the beginning of 2nd semester senior year because he/she had nowhere to go and wanted to finish high school here.

When a student was gone for an extended illness, I would go to her home twice a week to help tutor her.

I’ve provided meals for hungry students.

Let’s thank our teachers for all they do both inside and outside of the classroom!

Congrats to the Ames High Boys Tennis Team on their District Championship. 4 individuals qualified for State Tennis. Tim Ellis and John Kim in Singles, Nick Matthews and Nate Withers in Doubles!
