We Shine at Ashburton!
It has been a busy start
to the new year with Bingo (thanks to Jodi Herman), a lovely instrumental music
concert (thanks to Mr. Kepler and Mrs. Lee, the hours of practice by the
students, and the encouragement of the parents), and Career Afternoon (thanks to
Andrea Gillespie and Maggie Price for coordinating the event and the many, many
parents who made it a great success). We’ve had several holidays and days off,
ending with a professional day for the end of the quarter. As we begin the
third quarter, I would like to recognize Ashburton students for working hard
throughout the first semester. Please take time to review your child’s report
card in order to set goals for the rest of the year. Report cards will be
distributed on February 8th. Included in the report card envelope will be an
MCPS form 230-35, Bullying,
Harassment or Intimidation Reporting Form that
we are required to send home at the start of the quarter.
We have started our
process for enrollment next year for our future kindergarteners and articulation
for our fifth graders moving on to middle school. Our Kindergarten Orientation
will be held on April 27 and 28 for all children who will turn 5 by September
1, 2017. Please call the school office to set up an appointment or email Marney
Jacobs at Marjorie_E_Jacobs@mcpsmd.org .
Also, please encourage neighbors with pre-school aged children to contact us.
Kindergarten parents, please note that your children will not have school on
those two dates.
I hope to see you at
school or at our PTA events this month.
