Senior High School
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. A full story on the event can be viewed on the Beaver County Times website here.
Mrs. Bogati submitted essays to the Legion written by students in her class. They were titled "What A Patriot Means To Me". Samantha Freed was awarded 1st place by the Baden American Legion Post 641. Sarah Sipes was awarded 2nd place from the Ambridge Post. Both girls were invited to the monthly meeting held at the Baden Legion where each of them read their essay to members who were in attendance. Afterwards, they were presented with a check from the President of the Baden Post.
On Tuesday and Thursday (March 20 and 22), over 35 Ambridge High School students registered to vote as part of Elias Shingleton’s senior project.
During registration, students chose their desired political party and whether they wanted to be a poll volunteer on election day. All students who registered got a button to show their support and spread registration awareness, and were entered into a drawing for a Sheetz gift card.
Along with Elias Shingleton, students Taylor Welling and Tyler Weil also volunteered their time to help ensure the drive was a success.

On January 25, 2018, the Ambridge Area High School hosted students from across Beaver County for the Academic Games competition.
The competition included events from Greek Mythology and historic events reported in 2017 in the world-wide media, including entertainment, politics, sports, science, technology, space exploration and medicine.
Students from grades 5 – 12 were invited to compete. The event was organized by the Gifted Support team from Ambridge. It takes a team effort, as our High School staff; technology department; food services, along with our custodial and maintenance departments are significant contributors in preparing for this day. Our gratitude is extended to all of these department staff members for their time and effort.
The students planned and prepared for months in advance to retain the plethora of factual information needed to compete.
This year, the gymnasium and the LGI rooms were teeming with students who were ready to qualify in these games. If a student qualifies in two or more Academic Games throughout the school year, they are invited to the National Academic Games. This year, the National Games will be held in Knoxville, Tenn., in April.
We are proud of all the students who attend and hope to see many Ambridge Bridgers in Knoxville!
