We shine at Ashburton!

 Ashburton Elementary School

How quickly the school year has gone and now it is already May! It was only about a year ago that I first set foot on Ashburton’s grounds and the time has flown by! I’m reminded of how welcomed I felt by all of the parents, students, and staff as I came onboard here and I want to thank you for continuing to welcome me throughout the year. This first week of May is National Teacher Appreciation Week, and Ashburton would not be the shining place that it is without the stellar staff that we have. On Monday May 9, at Rockville High School, our special education staff throughout the building are being recognized by the Montgomery County Council of PTAs for their outstanding work on behalf of our students with disabilities. We have had so many staff members being recognized by various groups and for various reasons this year and we are so proud to have them here in our building. As quickly as this year has gone, the last bit of it will go by even more quickly because we have so many end of the year events to look forward to. Our 4th and 5th grade chorus students will perform in concert this month. Due to the large number of students in our band and orchestra, we have moved the instrumental music concert to the auditorium at Walter Johnson High school on June 8th. Our fifth graders are going to end the school year with a lot of fun activities, which includes the North Bethesda Middle School visit, Philadelphia field trip, patrol picnic, and the departing class picture this month; June has even more excitement with our PTA Fun Run, a celebration for fifth graders sponsored by the PTA, promotion and the clap-out. 

I hope to see you at many of our events throughout the month of May.
