Band Camp is in full swing at the high school! This year’s theme is all about Billy Joel, and the band is well on their way to learning their field positions. While we’re under “Pressure” to finish the show and it’s hot outside, the senior drum majors want everyone to know that “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” and “working too hard can give you a heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack.” The band’s performance calendar can be found at bridgerband.com.

The Ambridge Area School District is accepting nominations for the 2018 Hall of Honor.
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 2018 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 2018 Hall of Honor designee will be recognized during the 2018 Commencement Ceremony on May 31.
Applications will be accepted until April 15, 2018 and are available here and the Ambridge Area Senior High School main office.
