Dear Ninth Grade Parents and Students:
I hope this letter greets you in the midst of a relaxing and enjoyable summer. We would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to Ambridge Area High School. One of the most important transitions our children make in their educational career is the move to grade nine. Your choices for further education – college, technical school, military service, and the world of work will be greatly impacted by your official transcript that begins in grade nine.
Recognizing the significance of this transition, and the usual apprehension, nervousness, and excitement of entering the high school, we would like to invite you to our annual Freshman Orientation on Thursday, August 12, 2021 from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. The purpose of this orientation is to do the following.
• Provide students with their locker number
• Provide students with a map of the building
• Provide an opportunity for students to locate their classes with the assistance of teachers and student guides
• Provide an opportunity to answer any questions you or your child may have regarding high school, preparing for college, etc.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at the high school office. We look forward to seeing you and hope the remainder of your summer is enjoyable.
