I want to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to serve the students and parents of Ashland Elementary School. I consider myself fortunate to have the privilege of serving as your principal. Our mission is to provide a safe and challenging learning environment where students meet and exceed 21st century goals. The staff and I hope that your days with AES will be filled with fun and learning activities that promote a desire for high academic achievement. It is our intent to provide students with an education that will serve them well throughout their lives and to create memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. As we transition to common core standards, teachers are raising their expectations and students are rising to the occasion. We expect a productive and successful school year.
