We Shine at Ashburton!
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Ashburton and a
special welcome to all of the new families who are joining our community. This
letter has a great deal of pertinent information about the start of school so
please read it thoroughly! If you are new to our school community, you will
find that Ashburton is an excellent school with dedicated staff, an involved
community, a very supportive PTA, and students who exhibit Top Quality
characteristics in both academics and behavior.
We are welcoming Mrs.
Nakia Sutton as our Assistant School Administrator! Mrs. Sutton comes with
a great deal of experience in leadership in MCPS and we look forward to
learning with and from her! Mrs. Sutton taught sixth grade Language Arts
for a number of years and recently was a lead consulting teacher who
worked with new teachers. Mrs. Sutton will be an integral part of
the administration—handling discipline, going to IEP meetings, working
with staff on instructional practices, getting to know our students and
parents, and attending community events.
We look forward to
welcoming your children back to school! We hope to see you soon at one or all
of the many events that kick off the beginning of the school year!
