Issue 1......April 2016
Rising Six Graders Tdap Requirement

A Tdap vaccine is required for ALL sixth grade students before the start of school in September. Please bring in the documentation of this immunization to the school nurse.  If you have not received this immunization before the end of school in June, you will need to give the documentation to the middle school staff.  Meeting this requirement as soon as possible will help you have a smooth transition to middle school.

Mrs. Peoples will be notifying all the middle school nurses of those students that have turned in their Tdap documentation.

Unfortunately, no sixth grade student will receive their homeroom assignment until written verification of the Tdap immunization has been received.

Parents please feel free to call Mrs. Peoples, our school nurse, if you have any questions.

Bike to School Day is Wednesday May 4th

This event builds on the popularity of Walk to School Day, which is celebrated across the country – and the world – each October. Many communities and schools have been holding spring walk and bicycle to school events for years. National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the country to join together to celebrate and to build off of the energy of National Bike Month.

Updated Vision at Ashland
It's official! Thanks to all of the input from all parents and staff, as well as voting by our students, we now have an updated Vision for our school!
Kind, Creative, Safe, Hard-working, & Fun

    

Our Vision was created through a full year of research and voting during the 2014-15 school year. ALL staff (teachers, administration, assistants, office, bus drivers) and parents were asked for input about what qualities our students should have at Ashland. We did this at PTO meetings, Advisory Council meetings, staff meetings, Back to School Nights, New Parent Orientation, and anytime we could during the first half of the year. All of the input was gathered, counted, grouped, and ranked. The top ten qualities then were presented to the 3rd4th, and 5th grade students during the second half of the year. They voted on what they thought were the most important qualities, which is now what we have in our Vision for our students!

Our school team is now in the process of identifying how we already are doing these qualities, what needs to be added, and how we will ensure that we keep these in mind while planning instruction and events for our students. 
Ashland Motto In Sign Language
On of our parents modeled our school motto, "Together We SOAR Higher," using sign language while he was in for a day as an Ashland Watch Dog. 


Students Attending on Transfer
Due to the number of students already enrolled at Ashland so far this year, we are now closed to additional transfers in Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, and 5th Grade. Thank you for expressing interest in attending Ashland Elementary!
