We’re celebrating 25 years at The Ambrose School! One tradition we had for many years was the annual ChiliFest. It was a family fun event with chili contests, games, and dancing that also helped raise money for teacher Christmas bonuses. We are bringing it back for old times sake this year to give our whole community a chance to celebrate 25 years of blessings on our school.

Friday, September 27

  • During the school day, grammar school kids can wear western gear. Jeans, boots, plaid shirts and bandanas. No guns or weapons.
  • Upper School students can wear the western gear, or they can wear the 25th anniversary shirt. No other logo wear is permitted.
  • Of course, all students have the option to wear their school uniform.
