The Ambridge Area School District is accepting nominations for the 2018 Hall of Honor.
The Hall of Honor was established to commend outstanding Ambridge Area School District alumni for their accomplishments, successes, service to others and state or national awards.
In order to be eligible for nomination, alumni must meet the following criteria:
Nominees for the Hall of Honor must have made significant community contributing and/or career-related accomplishments. One-time distinctions or awards may be appropriate if they were given at a state or national level.
Nominees also must have graduated from Ambridge Area School District at least 10 years prior.
“The primary goal of the Hall of Honor is to have our current students aspire to the greatness that other Ambridge Area graduates have achieved,” said Dr. Jo Welter, Superintendent of Schools. “Those successful graduates add to our greatness and allow us to encourage and motivate current students toward future aspirations.”
The 2018 Hall of Honor winner will be selected by a committee consisting of School Board members, District Administrators, teachers, students and community members. If available to participate in the ceremony, the 2018 Hall of Honor designee will be recognized during the 2018 Commencement Ceremony on May 31.
Applications will be accepted until April 15, 2018 and are available here and the Ambridge Area Senior High School main office.
"Connected," the 2016-2017 Ambridge Area School District Annual Report, is now available. Residents of the District should have received a printed copy via the U.S. Postal Service. A digital version of the report can be viewed here.

The HS Steel and Jazz bands gave students at Highland and State Street Elementary an opportunity to celebrate the power of music and and see just how fun and cool it is to be a part of a school performing ensemble! As a tribute to Black History Month and in order to understand the African roots of steel pan and jazz music, the 5th & 6th grade band students were invited to join the HS musicians on a few tunes. They added additional rhythm by playing African drums and shakers that are normally used in their 5th and 6th grade music classes. Congratulations and much thanks to our music teachers, Celeste Polakovic and Samantha Croach, for their passion and purpose in the band and choral programs and continuing their implementation of world music drumming in the music curriculum!
