Summer Blast Fun!

Ashland Elementary School Students Enjoy Summer Blast Program

Fifteen Ashland Elementary School students in grades 1-5 have spent the past four weeks participating in learning activities that integrate math, literacy and science during Ashland’s Summer Blast program.  Weekly themes have included Fairy Tales and Adventures, Outer Space, STEAM projects and Summer Fun.

The students worked together to build a Fairy Tale Village, to create and paint a model of the Solar System and to solve Boston Museum of Science engineering challenges involving towers, parachutes and solar ovens.  Their days also included a shelter building challenge, daily thought questions, summer journal writing, along with Lego and Play Doh challenges.     

Congratulations Class of 2020

Graduation ceremonies across the state certainly look different this year.  Ashland Elementary School celebrated its graduates in a very personal way.  Students and their families participated in individual graduation ceremonies, which included marching into the gym to “Pomp and Circumstance”, presentation of diplomas and traditional moving of their graduation cap tassel.  Students shared their prepared comments and awards were presented during their allotted graduation time. The entire event was recorded and compiled into a virtual graduation ceremony video.  The video was shared with the graduates and their families on a large screen on the AES field.
