Today at the Beaver County Envirothon the High school team scored a 4th place and the JH teams got a 2nd place. Great job students Mrs. Green and Mr. Orend! Ambridge Proud Baby! Some photos are shots of what an Emerald Ash Borer does to a tree...one simple hole and the tree is gone. Talking to the forestry expert he said the woodpeckers population will grow due to the Ash Borer and they have taken seeds and put them in freeze drying so when all the trees are gone and the Ash Borer is gone they can replant Ash trees across the state!
Before Ambridge senior Capen Brendle focuses all his attention on his studies in the fall, he'd like to help the Bridgers cap off a four-peat in volleyball as WPIAL champs. To visit the article and video on the Times Online, click here.
A huge CONGRATULATIONS to State Street Elementary for winning FIRST PLACE and bringing the Beaver County Battle of the Books trophy back to the Ambridge Area School District! For the past three years our district has participated in Battle of the Books, and every year we have had one of our elementary schools make the finals. There were approximately 150 students at the competition vying for this honor, and we are very proud of State Street- Team 1 for the win. Members of the team were Kylie Dreyer, Naomi Husted, and Micah Kwolek. Along with the traveling trophy, the students received individual medals and gift cards to Barnes and Noble.
All of the students at Economy, Highland, and State Street who participated in this year's competition should be very proud of their performances at the Battle. They volunteered much of their free time to read the books and quiz each other on them, even meeting after school, at lunchtime, or during free periods. We are very proud of all their effort!
What's better than seeing ten guys compete in a pageant? That's what I thought. Nothing. The 11th Annual Mr. Ambridge Pageant will take place this Friday April 29th at 7pm in the High School Auditorium. Come support your friends Che Abrego, Ryan Killen, Patrick Gregory, Zak Ernst, Adam Fryer, Dru Stuebgen, Derek Kuhn, Dmytri Rakovan, Ryan Malatesta, and Seth Truskowski as they compete for the title of Mr. Ambridge. Admission is $5 per person. Hope to see you there!
Over the years growing food has gotten more advanced. We no longer need acres of land and gallons of pesticides. In today’s world we can grow a significant amount of food right from the inside of our homes. No sunlight, no dirt, no big machines, hydroponics can grow tons of food in half the space as a normal farm. Our plants for the hydroponics system will be used to feed kids from our school. The systems we are using are running off a closed water system which means water we use will be reused again and again to supply the plants with the nutrients they need. While this does save a lot of water it also provides a problem. Once the plants get watered they will take some of the nutrients out, and they will then have to be replaced, there is a calculated balance of nutrients, pH, and Ec in order to have the plants grow to their full potential. On a daily basis all levels will be checked by student volunteers from the ecology club run by Mr. Orend and Mrs. Green (Biology Teachers). The Ecology Club is a newly formed club this school year that plans to get more students involved with growing their own food and is using the hydroponics systems as a teaching aid for biology courses that are taught here at the high school.
