A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!!
KDKA Drug Symposium and Summit 2018: On November 14, 2018, eleven Ambridge Senior High school students joined in the fight against Opioid Abuse and Drug Addiction at the High School Coalition via KDKA programming to discuss healthy choices in and out of the community. Students had the opportunity to share their input and provide valuable information on the fight against drug use and how it impacts their generation academically, socially and emotionally. Experts from the Pittsburgh Drug and Coalition task force to UPMC doctors and Addiction Specialists spoke with students on how to continue to support healthy choices and their peers in and out of the classroom. Any student that has drug/alcohol concerns are encouraged to reach out to their counselor in guidance to be provided with the necessary supports for all levels. Any questions may be directed to guidance at 724-266-2833, ext. 2377.
Starting on Monday, the Junior High Interact Club will be hosting a "Penny War" to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and Hodgkin’s disease and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. This fundraiser will run the recommended three week time frame from Monday, March 5th until Friday, March 23rd.
What is a Penny War you may ask? It's pretty simple. Students bring in all the pennies they can and put them in their homeroom's donation box. Easy enough? There's just one catch...they can also bring in any other money, like nickels, dimes, quarters, and even dollar bills to sabotage other homerooms! Anything other than pennies will subtract from the money earned. General rule...pennies will add to your total, and all other money will take away. The homeroom with the highest balance (taking into account the sabotages) will win! So, we are asking students to bring in their money starting Monday! As long as the school raises $750, the Leukemia and Lymphoma society will pay for a pizza party for the winning homeroom.
The best part is that regardless of the highest or lowest balances collected by homerooms, all of the money collected will benefit a person in need. The Interact Club thanks you for your generosity!

The following academies are offered to Ambridge High School Juniors or Seniors that meet the academic criteria for dual enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year in partnership with CCBC: Aviation Academy / Health Academy / STEM Academy / Criminal Justice Academy and the up-and-coming Construction Academy.
During their visit, students were granted access to the professors and staff to learn about each academic program and gain hands on experience at the collegiate level of what all the curriculum entails. Students were also provided the opportunity to explore real-world situations and problem solving in each of the academies specific areas.
Congratulations to the Ambridge Junior High for their outstanding fundraising efforts made in the support of the American Heart Association. Over the course of a week, the Interact Club held various fundraising activities including face painting and selling wrist bands. The week ended in a dodge ball tournament for which students bought American Heart Association t-shirts as their ticket to play in the game. Because of the generosity and involvement of the students and staff, the Junior High raised approximately $1,300 in support of the American Heart Association! A huge thanks goes out to all of the students and staff of the Ambridge Junior High, as well as the administration for their ongoing support to these charitable endeavors.
