Upcoming Events

NJHS Sponsors SOCKTOBER Event at AES

As part of their ongoing commitment to community service, members of the AES National Junior Honor Society are encouraging students and staff to participate in Socktober.  According to the Socktober website, every night in the United States, an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets and socks are the least donated item to homeless shelters. Nationally the sponsors’ goal was to have 2 million people prove that even a small act of love, such as donating a pair of socks, can make big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.

All donated socks will be collected in the office.

Ashland Dollar General Shoppers Donate Items to Ashland Elementary School

Thanks to the generosity of many Ashland Dollar General shoppers, students at Ashland Elementary School received an amazing assortment new school supplies.  Store manager, Christina Kostelak, set up a donation area and encouraged shoppers to purchase extra items that would be donated to the elementary school.  The donated items included pencils, glue sticks, colored pencils, composition books, pencil sharpeners, planners, pencil cases and spiral notebooks.   Classroom teachers were invited to pick out some donated items to add to their classroom materials.   

AES students Christian Poissant, Sydney Kostelak, Madison Jolin and Karissa Goodwin happily display the donated items.

AES Students Once Again Participate in Fisher Cats Reading Challenge

Ashland Elementary School K-5 students kicked off their Fisher Cats Reading Challenge with a visit from Fisher Cats Broadcasting and Media Relations Manager Tyler Murray and Slider, one of the NH Fisher Cats mascots.

The purpose of the assembly was to share a love of reading with the students and Mr. Murray read one of his favorite books, The Invisible Boy, by Trudy Ludwig to the students.  He then asked students to share the name of their favorite books with him and recorded the information on a special poster that will be displayed during upcoming Fisher Cats’ games.

The Ned Show is a character education program that centers around three important messages that have lifelong relevance:


Growth Mindset

Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success--a simple idea that makes all the difference.  

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits.  In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work--brains and talent are just the starting point.
