Congratulations to our Ambridge Area School District students who were finalists in the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Oratorical Contest. Our 4th and 5th graders swept their divisions! They were presented their plaques and monetary awards at the Dr. King Banquet in Rochester on Sunday, January 15th. Entertainment for the evening was provided by the Ambridge Steel Drum Band.
In the fourth grade division, the winners were Madelyn Palmer of Economy Elementary in first place and Ja...red Astorino of Highland Elementary in second place.
In the fifth grade division, the winners were Mackenzie Sutton from State Street Elementary in first place and Madison Holcomb, also from State Street, in second place.
We are extremely proud of your knowledge of Dr. King and the oratorical skills you are developing at such a young age!
In STEAM, students in 3rd Grade have been using Little Bits, electronic building blocks that snap together with magnets, to learn about creating circuits! The power source blocks, input blocks and output blocks are all color coded, and they have been learning about how the input affects the output by tying in the Reading skill, "cause and effect!"

On Thursday, June 28, 2018, The President of the Republic of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović held a reception entitled Open Door Day. The invitation was open to individuals and organizations from the Croatian diaspora as well as those from the Croatian minorities from neighboring countries. Also, due to the events of the 52nd Croatian Fraternal Union’s Tamburitza Festival taking place in Zagreb, Croatia, participants of the Festival and their family and friends from the United States were also invited.
Two Ambridge Area School District students, 6th Grader Mackenzie Keber and 7th Grader, Gianna Petalino were in attendance at this Open Door Day Reception. Mackenzie and Gianna are members of the Jadran Beaver Valley Junior Tamburitzans that traveled to Croatia this past June to perform in the 52nd annual Croatian Fraternal Union’s Tamburitza Festival. They spent 12 days touring the country and learning many historical facts about the country and its heritage.
One of the many highlights of this tour was being able to be in attendance at the Presidental Palace for this Open Door Day Reception. The first floor of the Presidential Palace was open to the guests for their viewing. After listening to remarks by President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović and a musical and dance performance from local groups dressed in traditional costumes, our students got a chance to meet the president and take pictures with her.
