Message from Mrs. Walker

This morning, we collaborated with local law enforcement to conduct a non-emergency lock-down drill and drug search. Conducting such drills is an imperative part of ensuring a safe drug-free school environment for our community. I am happy to report that we were able to conduct the drill effectively and efficiently with minimal disruption to instruction.

Sincerely,  

Principal Walker

As you know, school/family communication is vital.  I have made this a goal of mine for the 2014-15 school year.  If you have not taken advantage of the multiple communication sources, I encourage you to do so.

Facebook (Amelia High School)… I have begun to post morning announcements each day by 9:00.This is a great way for parents and OAKS students to not miss a beat regarding important dates and information.

Twitter (AHS Barons):  Twitter is a great way to see the scores form our sporting events and to get information regarding upcoming events

GUESS THE SHOW NAME GAME!!!

Can you guess the name of the next AHS/AMS Drama!


Battlebots kicks off at Amelia!

On August 28th, nearly 30 students assembled after school to kick off the 2014-2015 Amelia Baronbots season.  Many of these students will be competing in the Xtremebots competition at Wright State’s Nutter Center on Saturday, November 22nd.

The Xtremebots league is based upon a fifteen pound weight limit, testing the students’ abilities to create a competitive unit in a small package.  The judges score the matches against other schools based upon (1) driving skills, (2) aggressiveness, and (3) damage to the other battlebot.  Perhaps an entry named “Bot Droppings” says it all!  The double elimination matches last all day and end with a grand champion.

Amelia Baronbots is open to all Amelia students after school, meeting in Mr. Paul’s Project Lead the Way Engineering Lab.


Guess the Show Name Game!

GUESS THE SHOW NAME GAME!!!

Guess the name of the show presented by AHS/AMS Theatre on April 23-26th. One hint per week will be listed on the school website – AMELIA HIGH SCHOOL – CLUBS/EVENTS – DRAMA beginning September 18th. Hints will be related to the show and I won’t respond to guesses! Actual title will be announced on October 31st.
