August 3, 2018

While students finish enjoying summer break with family and friends, here at Ames High we are busy getting ready for the 2018-19 school year. Here is a look at what is coming up on the AHS calendar:

  • Monday August 6 – Fall Sports Practice begins
  • Monday August 13 – School Pictures 8 am – 4 pm
  • Thursday, August 23 – First Day of School
  • Monday, August 27 – Back to School Night

 

SCHOOL PICTURES

Lifetouch will be taking Ames High students school picture in the Spirit Room on Monday, August 13 from 8AM-4PM. Enter the building through the Activities Entrance. Pictures are taken on a walk in basis, no appointment is necessary. Picture packets forms may be picked up in the main office at AHS and also in the Athletic Office or parents can go online at www.mylifetouch.com enter code BN108007Q0 to order and pay for a picture package.. Extra picture packets can be picked up on picture day. All non-seniors students MUST have their picture taken, as these pictures are used in the Yearbook and for student ID’s. If for some reason your child is not able to attend, another date, yet to be decided, will be held after the start of the school year. We can’t stress enough the importance of these pictures being taken.

 

REGISTRATION PACKETS

Reminder to fill out your students registration packet if you haven’t already done so. It is very important to have work processed 2-3 weeks before school starts to make the transition run smoothly for our 1400+ students. Parking permit hang tags need to be assigned, activity stickers and open campus/open lunch stickers needs to be placed on ID’s, the nurse needs all updated medical history forms reviewed and filed. If you still have forms, please complete them now and mail them in or drop them off in the main office at AHS.

If your son/daughter is involved in a fall sport, practice begins on August 6th and all athletic forms and a current physical need to be on file before that August 6th deadline. Thank you for your understanding.
