In March, high school students Nadia and Bree Mycyk, Emma Van Dyke, and Alois Watkins, along with Highland 6th grader Allison Wintersgill, volunteered to face paint at the State Street indoor carnival. The face paint booth was a hit. I was filled with elementary students from start till finish. The painters worked hard putting smiles on many colorful faces.
Ambridge Area School District
Act 1 Referendum
Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index % applicable to the School District. The Ambridge Area School District’s real estate tax increase for the 2016/2017 fiscal year is limited to the index of 3.3%. As a result of special circumstances covered by an Act 1 referendum exception, a tax rate % increase above 3.3% might be required to balance the Ambridge Area School District’s budget for the 2016/2017 fiscal year. The Ambridge Area School District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education as required by Act 1 for an exception allowing an increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the Ambridge Area School District’s Preliminary Budget.
A copy of the proposed preliminary budget will be available for public inspection by December 30, 2015 in the Ambridge Area School District Business Office which is located at the Ambridge Area High School, 909 Duss Avenue, Ambridge, PA, and on the District’s website at www.ambridge.k12.pa.us. Final adoption of the preliminary budget will be taken at the scheduled voting meeting of the Board of School Directors to be held on January 20, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the High School auditorium.
The Ambridge Area School District Board of School Directors have changed the date of the December Board meeting. The Board meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 immediately following the Reorganization meeting and Meeting and Discuss meeting scheduled for 7:00 PM in the High School Media Center.

The Ambridge Area School District is accepting applications for the 2019 Hall of Honor. Nominees for the honor will be inducted into the Hall of Honor during the 2019 Graduation Ceremony, scheduled for 6 p.m. on June 6, 2019 in the High School Gymnasium.
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 2019 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 2019 Hall of Honor designee will be recognized during the 2019 Commencement Ceremony on June 6.
Applications will be accepted until March 15, 2019 and are available on the District website and the Ambridge Area Senior High School office.
