Welcome to Ashland!
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.
