Recently the Special Education Department put together a coffee shop to help teach students real life working skills. The Armstrong High School opened a coffee shop, The Hawks’ Nest, for students and staff.
After a training period for the students, the shop officially opened on October 3, 2017. The shop is run by the food service department offering work experience to the Life Skills students. The goal of the program is to supply valuable work experience to the students. The food service staff is happy to be able to offer this service for the students and to be involved in the educational system. The combined effort is working well with positive feedback from staff and students. The program is voluntary for the Life Skills Students and they are adjusting well and enjoying the experience. Although the district does not expect a notable profit in the first year; however after set up costs, additional labor costs and equipment purchases, a portion of the proceeds will be used to fund activities for the Life Skills Students.
A 2000 Graduate of Dayton High School recently brought home an Emmy Award.
The Armstrong School District is happy to announce that we will be able to offer free breakfast and lunch to students in the elementary grades, again this year, under the Community Eligibility Program.
New apps include a School District and a Skyward app for use by both parents and employees.
The Armstrong School District has implemented a parent portal called Skyward Family Access. To find out more information about Family Access and how to register for an account go to the "Parent Portal" link under the "Parents/Students" menu on the ASD webpage.
If you signed up for Skyward Family Access in the 2016-2017 school year you are still able to use the same account username and password to access information this year (2017-2018).
