On Wednesday, May 9, eighth grade teams from the Junior High School participated in the Beaver County Envirothon, earning a fourth-place trophy.
The Beaver County Envirothon is an environmental issues and awareness competition for high school students, and is sponsored by several local environmental agencies. All conservation districts in Pennslvania hold competitions at the county level. Winners at the county level are then sent to compete in the Pennsylvania State Envirothon. Students are challenged in the areas of forestry, soils and land use, aquatics, wildlife and a current environmental issue.
Congratulations to our teams!
Ambridge Area High School students embraced the #ChooseKind movement with an activity designed to get them thinking about the value of being kind to classmates and standing up against bullying.
The event, which took place on Thursday afternoon on the "bridge" into the High School, was organized by student Marissa Hooks, who said she wanted to emphasize the power just a few kind words can have on others. Students who participated wrote messages of kindness on balloons and sent them to classmates. Anyone who received a balloon was then encouraged to include another message of kindness and launch the balloon in the community to help brighten someone else's day.
Each balloon cost $1, and a total of 80 balloons were sold for the event.
High School Principal Ms. Janice Zupsic said she was extremely proud of the students for spreading a message of positivity. " Marissa brings a very positive message to the forefront with this activity. It is a great reminder to all of us that we should be helping to raise each other up rather than tearing each other down."
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Big Brother, Big Sister Organization.
This season in track & field, Isaac Elliott plans to win a WPIAL title in his sprinting event. In previous years, Elliott has unfortunately pulled his hamstring and been unable to compete. This year he has been doing very well so far with no injuries, so he hopes to be able to compete and qualify for states. Congratulations to him so far, and good luck for the rest of the season!
