Upcoming Events

Kindergarten Students Receive Hats and Mittens

AES Kindergarten students will be extra warm at recess this year, thanks to the kindness and knitting talents of local volunteers.  The hat and mitten donation program, which is coordinated by the staff from the Meredith Village Savings Bank, has provided brand new hats and mittens to all of our Kindergarten students.  Additional items have also been donated to the Nurse's office for other students to use.

Free Breakfast and Lunch For All Students Extended Until June, 2021

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced their free meal programs will continue until June 30, 2021.   This means that all students, regardless of their family eligibility for the Free and Reduced Meal Program, will now get their breakfast and lunch meals at not cost.

Although these free meals do not require you to be eligible for the Free and Reduced Meal Program, if you think your family would quality, please complete and submit the Household Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals.  You may also want to read the Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.  Your participation will help us to increase our eligibility for grant funding.

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.

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.
