We shine at Ashburton!
Dear Ashburton Parents,
are off to a great start to the school year! Students and staff are settling in
to routines and great learning has begun at Ashburton. We had an amazing
turn-out for both the Back to School picnic and our Back to School Night. We
heard many positive comments from parents about the smooth start—thank you! We
also had a new event and it was incredible- Donuts with Dad drew over 500
fathers, grandfathers, uncles, male role models, friends and many students for
a wonderful morning of donuts, fun activities and tours of the school. We are
so excited to see so many families be able to participate. We thank Maggie
Price, our counselor, for organizing the event quickly and hauling 33 dozen
donuts to school. We also thank our NAACP reps, Katrina Adams, Sara Tobin,
ChiQuita Battle (and their families) for their help and our ever present PTA
board who sold spirit wear, set up and made the special father and child slide
show (thank you Sharon Watts).We’ll work with the PTA on an event for our mothers
later this year.
look forward to working with you, your children and the staff as we begin a
year focusing on making every child a successful part of the Ashburton Learning
Community. Thank you for sharing your most precious gift—your children—with us.
