Dear Asbury Park High School's Blue Bishop Community,

Welcome to the New Year! As we prepare to begin the second semester of the school year I have many exciting updates to share with you from our high school community. 

Asbury Park High School will hold their midterm exams from Monday, January 22nd through Wednesday, January 24th. Please view this letter to review the schedule of exams. All students in grade 9-12 will follow a half-day schedule. Please note that students in the Life Skills Program, Pathways to Graduation Program, and Dream Academy Classes of '24 & '25 will follow their regular schedules and will not have half-days. 

Over the Winter Break, we were excited to see the renovations of the Media Center progress to the next phase with the installation of new modern furniture. We are excited to continue to work to transform this space into a collaborative center for students and unveil our new Post-Secondary Planning Center. The renovations for our High School Life Skills Lab have begun in the Media Center as well with the installation of a new stove, microwave, and refrigerator. Contractors are hard at work to complete this project this Spring. 

Spring Athletic Season Sign Ups have begun and students who are interested in participating in Baseball, Softball, Track & Field, or Boys Volleyball must complete the Spring Sign Up Google Form. The last day to sign up for a Spring Sport is Friday, February 9th. In addition to athletics, APHS also offers several clubs for students to get involved in including: Debate Team, Interact Club, Student Activities, The Classes of 24-27, National Honor Society, Engineering Club, and more! 

The Class of 2024 will be receiving their Senior Contract this month which will overview all of the exciting upcoming events planned for our future graduates! This contract will also include important information for families including information about Senior Class Dues, deadlines, and key dates to remember. Graduation will be held on Thursday, June 20th at 5pm. We will be sharing out several fundraisers hosted by the Class of 2024 to support them at this exciting time for special events such as Prom, the Senior Picnic, and more. Please consider supporting them.

Yours in education, 

Principal ONeill
