We Shine at Ashburton!

 Ashburton Elementary School  

Dear Ashburton Parents/Guardians,

It has been a busy start to the new year! We are off to a running start in 2018 and it has been great to see so many of you attending the many events we have had thus far. There have been plenty of amazing opportunities for our community to come together over the last month with PTA Bingo Night (thanks to Jodi Herman), a lovely instrumental music concert (thanks to Mr. Kepler and Mr. Vaughn, 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). As we begin the third quarter, I would like to recognize Ashburton students for working hard throughout the first semester. We have seen tremendous growth in all of our students through the first half of the year and look forward to continuing that through the second half of the year. Please take time to review your child’s report card in order to set goals for the rest of the year. Maybe a goal is to read more, write more, or simply go for a walk and talk about what they learned in school today. 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. Please update your contact information by going on the myMCPS Portal; the phone numbers and email addresses are used for the school to contact you in case your child is sick but also for the myMCPS Connect outreach messages. The system has been updated and we can now send to more email addresses per student and even to specific groups. This makes having the correct email addresses even more critical so that you are getting information in a timely fashion.  

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

 

 

        Sincerely,
