SCHOOL PICTURE RETAKES
On Wednesday, October 17 from 8:00 AM-1:00 PM Lifetouch will be at AHS to take pictures of
students who DID NOT have their pictures taken on August 13, and also for those students who
had their pictures taken but are not happy with their picture package. If you desire a retake,
students need to bring their entire picture package back to the photographer when they have
their picture retaken. We encourage all 9th through 11th graders to have their picture taken
regardless of whether a package is purchased. These pictures are used for next year’s IDs as
well as yearbook pictures.
Parents can go to mylifetouch.com to place orders and the code is BN108007Q1.

COMBAT HUNGER RIVALRY WEEK
Next week Ames High is partnering with the Food Bank of Iowa and Star 102.5 to provide food
for children, families, and seniors living in Iowa. We are competing against Urbandale High
School to see who can collect the most non-perishable food items and monetary donations in
one week. At Friday’s football game against Urbandale, the items and donations will be added
up to see which school raised the most. We would love for parents to bring non-perishable food
items before the game to help our cause and for every two items, you’ll receive a ticket for a
free popcorn! Along with food, any monetary donations will be accepted at the game. Go Little
