Ashland Elementary School Sponsors Food Drive

Ashland Elementary School Student Council

Sponsors Successful Food Drive

According to WhyHunger.org, 11.8 percent of the households in America suffer from food insecurity. That’s approximately 14,893,960 families who struggle to buy food for themselves and their children. This is an issue that needs to be solved, and Ashland Elementary School is trying to do something about it. This month, they held a food drive to assist the hungry families of Ashland. The AES Student Council and their “Community Outreach” committee members organized the food drive. With their work on posters, contests, and others forms of advertising, they collected a total of over two hundred food items.

Order Your AES Superpower T-Shirt

The AES Student Council hosted a T-Shirt design contest.  Students in all teams were invited to design a T-Shirt to represent the school year theme.  Winning design artists were Aliva Foote and Natalie Boyer.  Funds raised from the T-Shirt sale will be used to build a new basketball court and to purchase a water bottle filler for the school.

2018 Halloween Parade A Great Time For Students, Staff and Community

During the annual Halloween Parade, Ashland Elementary students, staff and parents enjoyed an afternoon of trick or treating and spooky fun.  This year’s school-wide theme centers on a hero’s journey and finding your superpower.   Many of the staff and students dressed as their favorite Super Hero or displayed their superpower as part of their costume.  In the days leading to the parade, each learning team created a banner highlighting their superpowers.  The banners were judged by a panel of staff and the winning team was selected to lead the parade.

Pictured above Brecken Reynolds proudly displays the winning banner.

Kindergarten Students Release Butterfly

For the past three weeks, Ashland Elementary Kindergarten students have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly.  They created a habitat where they could watch the transformation from chrysalis to butterfly. When the insect reached the adult stage, the students along with teacher Mrs. Spears and Ms. Tower released the butterfly into its natural outdoor environment.
