Message From the Principal

October is National Bullying Prevention Month

Please join us on October 18th for a School Wide Assembly: No Bullying: “Stand Up — Step In!”- Three-time Parent's Choice Award-winning, David Jack, will take your kids through a multi-media spectacular show which includes music, movement, virtual characters, dance, interactive game shows and a generous helping of fun! The assembly will focus on how to identify the players in a bullying episode and more importantly how students should deal with it.

The assembly begins at 10:00 AM. Parents are welcome to attend. Students are encouraged to wear orange in support of National Bully Awareness that day as well.


The school webpage has been updated and will contain links for all newsletters, as well as other links related to Ashaway School. Please visit for more information.
