Pink Day sponsored this year by AHS Student Council

1 in 8 Women will face a diagnosis of Breast Cancer and Every 13 minutes a Woman dies of Breast Cancer.

 

Today at AHS we are celebrating survival with our annual Pink Day sponsored this year by AHS Student Council. We are also letting people know that Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer with visits by the Pink Reaper, but a Pink Fairy accompanies her to remind everyone to do a monthly self-exam and get a mammogram over 40!


What's Alice Parent Information Night:

The West Clermont School District’s safety committee made up of district administrators, ALiCE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) trainers, and local law enforcement representatives from Union Township, and the Clermont County Sheriff's Office, are holding a “What's ALiCE," presentation for parents, on Wednesday, November 19, 6:30 PM  in the Township Hall, UT Civic Center, 4350 Aicholtz Rd. 

“Schools are some of the safest places for our children because most schools practice evacuation drills for fires and protective measures for tornadoes,” said West Clermont School District Superintendent Keith Kline. “However, just like practicing monthly fire drills, it’s important to know how to respond in the very unlikely event of an armed intruder,” he added. “Schools are required to have practice drills throughout the school year,“ Kline stated. Students will be introduced to ALiCE prior to the drills. 

“We are in the process of updating our Emergency Operations Plan. The updated plan will put us in alignment with the Ohio Attorney Generals recommended plan that was developed in partnership with 38 stakeholders and leading school safety experts." WCSD Director of Operations Ed Dyer commented.

ALiCE is supported by more than 700 law enforcement agencies around the country and complies with the new standard of care recently developed by the Federal Department of Education, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

AHS Mentors Visit AMS:

Several AHS students spent the morning at Amelia Middle School in order to discuss life as a high schooler with 7th grade students. AHS students focused upon topics such as what to expect in high school, how to balance school/extra-curricu...lars, reflecting on past work habits and motivation. The hope is that it sends a positive message to help middle school students understand what it takes as they move through middle school and into high school.

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.
