Principal's Message

As we get ready to finish out our year, we have a lot of fun activities happening at Ashbrook School. Preschool is going to help us by planting flowers in our front gardens, kindergarten is celebrating their Alphabet Countdown with fun activities each day for each letter of the alphabet, first grade is working on persuasive letters and they have some great ideas about improving our school. Second grade is getting ready for their big move to Bobby's Run School! We are looking forward to a strong end of the school year!

Welcome Class of 2034!

We Need Your Help

With the increased number of students attending AES on a daily basis, our list of students who have not completed the AUXS app is getting longer. We have limited staff available to screen and call families and limited space to house our students who are not cleared. We appreciate your help in filling out the app each morning so your children can go directly to class. Some families have found success by setting an alarm on their phone as a reminder to complete the app.
