CROSS COUNTRY
Would you like some Girls Cross Country spirit wear for your wardrobe, here are some links to
buy the t-shirt, long sleeve t-shirt, and sweatshirt that we have this year.
Long Sleeve ($17.51): https://www.customink.com/g/pfa0-00by-qjn3
T-Shirt ($12.46): https://www.customink.com/g/pfa0-00bw-zrju
Sweatshirt ($28.16): https://www.customink.com/g/pfa0-00by-pw3n

PROCEDURES FOR DR. APPOINTMENTS
If you are planning to take your student to a doctor appointment during the school day, it is
helpful to notify the attendance secretary, via note or phone call 515-817-0601, the morning of
the appointment. If your student will need a pass to leave during a class, he/she can get a
paper pass to show the teacher before class instruction begins. This saves the secretaries
from interrupting classes during instruction time. Secretaries are not encouraged to call the
teacher during class instruction to pull a child out of class. The pass the student should have
can be picked up in the main office the same school day of the appointment. Once the student
has that pass, he/she does not need to stop back in the office on the way out of the building. If
the student is coming back to school after an appointment, then he/she should “check in” at the
office again.

COLLEGE REPRESENTATIVES
The following college representatives will be in Student Services next week. Please see Mrs.
Monroe if you need a pass to visit with these college representatives.

CHANGES AT AMES HIGH THIS YEAR

This year is full of changes and we would like to make sure you are aware of some of those changes.  

The first is that AHS is going to try something different this year and hold an Electronic Open House.  Due to the extremely difficult demands of schedules at the beginning of the year, we have asked all teachers to email the parents describing their class, their grading policy, and something interesting about them. I think it is going to be a great way to introduce our staff and the classes. If parents do have questions or they are wanting to meet with the teachers please email that staff member and schedule a time to meet.  

The second change that was discussed last year with parents is the block schedule. AHS will have a modified block that will have 90 minute classes on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday students will have 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th periods and on Wednesday they will have 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th.  Monday, Thursday and Friday will be the traditional 8 period day.  

The other change that is occurring this year is that there are no scheduled study halls.  Students that do not have a class schedule during a period will be allowed to go to three areas.  They are to be in the cafeteria, the media center, or the multipurpose room.  The “flex” period is allowing students to choose which setting is best for their academic needs.  

If you have any questions regarding any of these changes for the 19-20 school year please feel free to call or email Brian Carico.

 

CYCLONE SENIOR OF THE MONTH

This year we will be recognizing a Cyclone Senior of the Month.  Staff will nominate senior students for their outstanding leadership and positive influence on our school and our community.  For September we had three students nominated.  Victoria Kyverga was nominated by Josh Gorman for her outstanding leadership in helping 9th grade students transition to AHS.  Victoria helped start the AMS MAT program that helps 8th graders with transitioning to AHS.  Simone Wesely was nominated by Jean Muhammad and Lindsay Wede for her outstanding support of the 9th grade students during the first days of school and for her inclusiveness of bringing people together.  Our third nominee is Cooper Downs.  Cooper was nominated by Eric Bappe and Ian Smith.  Both staff members praised Cooper for his positive leadership skills on the football field and in the classroom.  Congratulations Victoria, Simone, and Cooper.  An extra congratulations to Victoria for having her name drawn for the Senior Cyclone Parking Spot of the Month. 

DECA PARENT MEETING

The 2019-2020 DECA Parent meeting will be held next Thursday, September 5 from 5:30-6:00 pm in the high school cafeteria. Come get information about DECA, hear about opportunities within the club, and get your student registered for upcoming events he/she would like to participate in. For questions, contact Vicki Hales (vicki.hales@ames.k12.ia.us).

REPORTING ABSENCES

The two most efficient methods of notifying the school of an absence are by signed note or phone call. Please call the Attendance line at 515-817-0601 first thing in the morning if your child will be absent from school. If you know the night before an absence, you may call and leave a message. Messages may be left on the attendance line 24/7. These messages are checked regularly during school hours, and entered into Infinite Campus. Please do not email absences to the secretaries, as these notifications are not processed as efficiently an could result in an absence not being excused.

COLLEGE REPRESENTATIVE 

The following college representatives will be in Student Services this week. Please see Mrs. Monroe if you need a pass to visit with these college representatives.

Wednesday, Sept. 4 – Vanderbilt Univ. 12:45 pm 2nd lunch.

AMES HIGH CONSTRUCTION
Remember we have a large construction site here at Ames High and that may delay
drop off and pick up of your student. Please plan accordingly as we start this new school
year, as we want everyone to be cautious and safe.

CAFETERIA BREAKFAST HOURS
Breakfast doors will open at 7:15 AM and close at 8:00 AM. Students will have time to eat
breakfast before the 7:50 AM class start time.

REPORTING ABSENCES
The two most efficient methods of notifying the school of an absence are by signed note or
phone call. Please call the Attendance line at 515-817-0601 first thing in the morning if your
child will be absent from school. If you know the night before an absence, you may call and
leave a message. Messages may be left on the attendance line 24/7. These messages are
checked regularly during school hours, and entered into Infinite Campus. Please do not email
absences to the secretaries, as these notifications are not processed as efficiently an could
result in an absence not being excused.

BLOCK SCHEDULE
This year Tuesdays and Wednesdays will be a block schedule and classes will be 90 minutes in
length. It is important that students are attending the classes in their entirety. It is very difficult to control all appointments but we would like to encourage parents to try and avoid those daysto schedule appointments.

PRIOR ARRANGEMENTS BEFORE ABSENCES
If you know in advance of an upcoming extended absence due to a college visit, surgery, travel
plans or family events, your student will need to obtain a Prior Form from the Main Office. In
order to obtain a prior, your student will need to bring a signed note from a parent/guardian
indicating the dates and reason for the absence, the secretary will attach that note to the prior
form, the student will then have his/her teacher sign the form to alert them about the absence.
At that time the teacher will let the student know if there is work that needs to be turned in prior
to the absence or after the student returns from the absence. Once the Prior form is filled out
completely, the student will turn it into the Attendance secretary prior to the absence.

SICK AT SCHOOL
If a student feels ill at school, they need to stop through the nurses office before leaving the
building. If your student calls or texts you saying they feel sick and wants to come home, please
tell them to go to the nurse first. This is the process the district requires us to follow. The nurse
records attendance for those who leave the building for illness during the school day. If a
student does not go through the nurse, the absence will not be excused.
