Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

Upcoming Events

The Plastic Police

Last spring, during Project Week, Ashland Elementary Middle Tier students were challenged to explore real world issues and to gain new life experiences.  The students designed endeavors that demonstrated how teenagers can make a difference in the lives of others.  One group, The Plastic Police, have opted to continue their mission to reduce single use plastic and to bring awareness of the problem to their peers.


AES Students Participate in Fire Prevention Week Activities

As a part of Fire Prevention Week, members of the Ashland Fire Department spent the two days at Ashland Elementary School and participated in a variety of activities with the students. 

On the first day, students in grades K – 5 enjoyed classroom visits by members of the Ashland Fire Department where they learned about the gear a firefighter wears, what to do if you are in a fire and how they can educate their families on fire prevention and safety plans. Students also got a first-hand look inside the fire trucks and ambulances.

Students in Mr. Jones’ and Mrs. Lindberg’s classroom were given a prompt about a fire safety topic and were instructed to create a unique rap presentation on that topic.  Students presented to their classmates and the top performers were invited to perform for the member of the fire department.


What's New With Box Tops?


Are Box Tops clips going away?

Eventually, yes, the Box Tops program will become digital-only.  Over the summer you’ll see some participating brands begin to change their packaging from a physical Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops icon.

Congratulations to the Class of 2019

After a welcome message from student Natalie Boyer, several speakers provided encouraging remarks and solid advice for the soon to be high school students. Superintendent Mary Moriarty opened her comments with a reminder to the students that Ashland will always be their true home and urged them to draw strength and comfort from this idyllic community.  She also encouraged the students to make their experience in high school as rich as possible by challenging themselves with new learning and experiences.
