The Ambridge Area School District is offering a free Pre-K Counts class for children ages 3 and 4 for the 2019-2020 School Year. The program is open to students across Beaver County. Children living within the Ambridge Area School District are eligible for free transportation to the program.

Pre-K Counts is designed to prepare children for reading and math, improving attention , following directions and getting along with others in preparation for Kindergarten enrollment in their home school districts.

All Pre-K Counts classrooms:

  • Have teachers who possess the education and expertise to instruct young children;

  • Use a curriculum designed to help children grow academically and socially;

  • Regularly review children’s progress and choose teaching and learning activities that are tailored to each child’s individual needs;

  • Offer small class sizes so children receive plenty of 1:1 time with teachers.

Children between the ages of 3 and 4 who live in families earning up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible to enroll in this free program. Breakfast and lunch are served to all children enrolled in the program.

Ambridge Area School District offers two PreK classrooms at Highland Elementary School and one at both State Street and Economy elementary schools for a total of four Pre-K classrooms.

Olivia Huellen, a 6th grade student at State Street Elementary was recently recognized as the first place winner of the Caring Place poster contest.  The Caring Place, developed in Pittsburgh in 1997 provides support for grieving children, adolescents and their families.  The organization also provides partnerships with schools and training for school professionals across the state.  Olivia’s poster will be displayed in all 501 school districts and other public venues throughout the state.  We are very proud of Olivia for her accomplishment!  This is the second year in a row that a student from State Street has won the contest.

Martin Luther King Jr. Oratorical contest this year.  It is sponsored by the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee in Rochester.  If students submit essays, they would have to be available on Saturday, November 18th at 3:30 p.m. to read them at the semi-finals if they are chosen.  Our students from elementary to high school have been very successful in this competition in the past and have represented the district well. 

State Street was an exciting place to be on Monday, August 21st as the kids headed into school for the 2017-2018 school year!   Students attended an assembly on the STAR behavior reward program and had the opportunity to view the solar eclipse. 

 

 

Andrew Crofoot and Madison Holcomb were awarded prizes for completing the summer activity packet and returning it to Mr. McKelvey (photo below).

 

Mackenzie Sutton, Colin Sutton, Braden Vukovcan, and Ben Vukovcan (not pictured Candise Russin) completed the summer reading challenge sponsored by the Ambridge Area Federal Credit Union (photo below).  

Welcome back to all the students!

These AASD students brought immense pride to our district in Oglebay, West Virginia!
They qualified at the county level to attend the NATIONAL ACADEMIC GAMES!
Joshua Guenther 5th grade
Naomi Husted 6th grade
Micah Kwolek 6th grade
They are all State Street students who know how to 'think' and play these higher-level games of intense strategy.
Naomi competed in Linquishtik, Equations, and Current Events. She had to have her game face on to do her best in grammar, math problems, and the latest news from 2016!
Micah and Josh competed in Current Events and Presidents. They could probably tell you what color dresses the First Ladies wore at the Innaugaration!
These students are to be commended for making it this far and competing with 1,000 players from across the nation!
Only the top 15% qualify from the county to play at the national level!
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THESE STUDENTS WHO KNOW HOW TO 'PLAY' TO WIN!!!!!!
We are truly proud of your accomplishments!
