School Board Recognition Month
January is School Board Recognition Month—a time to salute the work of our volunteer school board members and to celebrate public education. This special recognition of School Board members reflects our combined commitment to leadership and accountability assuring that ALL children succeed. It’s an exciting and challenging time in public education. They are citizens whose decisions affect our children and build our communities. Showing appreciation for the important work of school boards should be a year-round process, but too often we neglect to recognize the dedication and hard work of these men and women who represent us. This January, the staff and students of our district are asking all members of the community to take a moment and thank a school board member. Thank you to the men and women who dedicate countless personal hours to ensure the needs of our community are met by our public schools. We salute the public servants of the Ambridge Area School District whose dedication and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible. We applaud them for their vision and voice to prepare today’s students to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Our fifth graders worked in teams to make , market, and sell products. They had to pick a theme and follow the theme for all of the items on their table. They worked together for a team goal to make the most money, but for a bigger goal to raise money for Children’s Hospital and the Caring Place. The children learned to work together and make compromises for the good of the group. This was a wonderful learning experience for everyone.
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.
