REQUEST FOR 2nd SEMESTER SCHEDULE CHANGES
Students are reminded that if requesting a schedule change for 2nd semester, this should be done BEFORE winter break.

This year’s theme is “Enchanted Winter Wonderland” Activities include a sledding night (weather permitting), coffeehouse, underclassmen lunch buyout, dodgeball tournament, and a week of dress up days and arcade games in the lobby.

PROGRAM FOR JUNIOR PARENTS
Parents of Juniors – An evening program has been planned to outline the postsecondary planning process at Ames High. The program will be held on Monday, December 10th at 6:00 pm in the high school cafeteria. The counselors will be outlining the processes and procedures to follow in order to successfully determine their student’s options for postsecondary schooling. Examples of the topics to be addressed are the following: ACT vs SAT…….Which one should I take? Researching colleges and making the most of your visit. Applying to college & organizing the application process. Applying for financial aid.
Naviance Student will also be introduced to parents. Through Naviance Student, students can search for colleges that match their interests/needs, compare and match colleges, request transcripts, view scholarship information, and view when college representatives are scheduled to visit Ames High. Parents unable to attend the program may pick up the materials the following day in Student Services.
WINTER CHEER FUNDRAISER
The Ames Winter Cheerleaders are hosting a fundraiser on Monday, Dec. 10th at Pizza Ranch! Join us for supper and let the cashier know you’re there to support the cheerleaders so a portion of your bill will be donated back to the winter cheer program! The cheerleaders greatly appreciate the Ames community’s support!
OPPORTUNITY FOR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS
As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for our students to become more culturally aware, explore new ideas and grow their potential. We believe that when students are able to see their education come to life outside of the classroom, they develop a new and valuable perspective of the world.
We would like to invite your student to join us on an educational travel experience to Peru in the Summer of 2020! Ms. Cakrasenjaya, Mrs. Engelkes, and Mr. Ripley will be hosting an informational meeting on Wednesday, December 12th at 6pm at Ames High School (Room 229) to provide more details about this opportunity and answer any questions you may have. To ensure that we can accommodate everyone in our meeting space, we kindly request that you RSVP by December 11th by using our RSVP page at: https://rsvp.eftours.com/hef3nxt
