We Shine at Ashburton!

 Ashburton Elementary School  

Dear Ashburton Parents, 


I can’t believe how quickly the year has gone by! The 2016-2017 school year has been an amazing one with so many highlights! Who can forget Dads & Donuts, our Farm to School day, the many author visits, STEAM Night, the Health Fair, Moms & Muffins, the Girls on the Run 5Ks, Spring Fling and so many more events! As the year ends, we hope everyone finds time for relaxation and reflection. The end of the year is always a busy time, but it is also a celebration of all that has been accomplished over the last ten months. I share your pride in the progress your children have made in school this year and it has been fantastic to see all of the growth in academics and stature for so many of our children. Your children have amazing teachers in their classrooms and all that we accomplish is a result of their hard work and passion.



Have a wonderful summer break with your children!

Ashburton Elementary School Future Addition

Thank you to all of those who attended and gave feedback on the proposed design for the permanent and modular addition structures in the first session. The last work session is scheduled for this Tuesday in the APR.

Schematic Design for Ashburton Elementary School Addition - April 25, 2017 

Work Session #2 is Tuesday, April 25 at 6:30 pm in the All-Purpose Room (cafeteria). Ashburton PTA will be providing babysitting services.  

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) is scheduled to begin the Schematic Design Phase for an approved capital project in your neighborhood.

The purpose of these meetings is to develop a preliminary design for the school project.  This is an evolving process whereby input from the previous meeting is incorporated into the ongoing proposed design.  These meetings are to determine spatial relationships within the school’s interior, the pedestrian and traffic flow of the site and how the project will impact the community at large.   Participants will include representatives of the school, PTA, neighbors, government agencies, the design architects, and staff from MCPS Division of Construction. 

MCPS extends an invitation to you to participate in this process.  While all are invited, the community is encouraged to send representatives from their respective streets, areas, and associations. Everyone present will have the opportunity to hear about the study process for the proposed project. The work sessions are scheduled in the afternoon and in the evening to allow for maximum community and school staff involvement.
