Choir Accomplishments

On Friday, March 3rd, the Archbold Men’s Chorus, Archbold Women’s Chorus, and the Archbold Chorale competed in adjudicated competition at Archbold High School.  The Archbold Men's Chorus, Archbold Women's Chorus, and the Archbold Chorale all received a Superior Rating (I) and have qualified for State Competition.  This marks the eleventh consecutive year that choirs from Archbold have qualified for State competition.  Congratulations to these talented students for their superior work!

Ipad Pick up

Ipads are available for pick up beginning August 10. Please bring your completed paperwork and $30 to the high school office during regular office hours.

Free Tutoring

AHS is offering free tutoring each Thursday after school in the media center.  Staff will be on hand to help with homework and study for tests. 

Study Table

September 15 will mark the beginning of this year’s study table.  We saw great results the last 3 years and want to continue this program. This hour of tutoring every Thursday is open to anyone who wants a little more help each week. We will have a high school teacher as well as student tutors from the National Honors Society ready to help students each week.

Absence Policy

A student is allowed to have a parent write notes to excuse absences up to five (5) days in a semester.  The sixth and subsequent absences in that semester will require a medical note.  If one is not provided, the absence will be considered unexcused.


Cafeteria Accounts

During the school year students will need to turn in their money to the high school office by 10:30 AM in order to have the money deposited into their account for that day.  No money will be taken while a student is in the lunch line.  Parents who do not want to allow other students to use their child's lunch account need to notify Mrs. Babcock.

Lunch prices will be $2.70 for regular lunch and $3.00 for basket meals for the 2015-16 school year.  

Questions can be emailed to Mrs. Babcock.
