Brainstormers Assembly

 On January 14, Ashley hosted the Brainstormers Assembly. Students were treated to a wonderful performance that highlighted the major elements of a story, and some even participated in acting their stories out. The students enjoyed the show and are looking forward to the Brainstormers’ return in March, when they will act out stories written by our very own students! Enormous thanks to our Parent-Teacher Group for helping to bring the Brainstormers to Ashley.

Science Fair

 Wednesday, February 4, was the first annual Ashley Elementary Science Fair. Students in grades 2-5 completed projects based on the scientific method. Each student devised a hypothesis, followed the scientific method by performing experiments and drew conclusions based on their results. Enormous thanks to the teachers from Middle School North and Anchor Bay High School for volunteering as judges and congratulations to all the participants for a fantastic job done.Click here for more photos.


 Ashley Elementary held their 2nd annual Seadog Shuffle on October l7th which raised approximately $7,800. This  will be used towards purchasing new projector/document camera for the classrooms.  Each student that participated in the shuffle and raised $100 in pledges had the chance to “slime and shine” our principal, Mr. Stanton, with pies, silly string and water guns.  The students and staff had a great time walking the seadog shuffle as well as ending the day with the “Slime and Shine” assembly.  The lucky winners of the new projector/document cameras will go to Mrs. Bergeron, Mrs. Doerr, Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Morisette. Click here for more photos.

Principal of the Day

 The top fundraiser for the Seadog Shuffle was Von Taylor, who was Principal of the Day on Friday, October 17.  As Principal, Mr. Taylor toured the building and welcomed students to school.  Later, he signed a decree awarding his class an extra recess at a later date.  He also assisted with setting up for the Seadog Shuffle and helped supervise students during lunch in the cafeteria.  Additionally, Mr. Taylor won a free face painting and the opportunity to “Slime and Shine” Mr. Stanton.


The New Baltimore Fire Department came to Ashley Elementary on October 9th to teach the children about fire prevention and safety. Children from kindergarten through 2nd grade viewed a short video about fire safety and then went outside to see the fire trucks and all the equipment. The children had a great time while learning all about fire prevention and safety. Click here for more photos.

National Walk to School Day

Wednesday, October 8th was National Walk to School Day. Almost 300 Ashley students, parents, and staff members met at Walter and Martha Burke Park to walk to school. Thank you to Mayor John Dupray, Chief Tim Wiley and the New Baltimore Police Department for helping make this event a great experience for all.

All Children Exercising Simultaneously

On May 7th, Ashley students participated in A.C.E.S. but due to the inclement weather, we exercised in our classrooms to an exercise video. This was done nationally for 15 minutes and was very fun. The children enjoyed it immensely and even the teachers had fun! Click here for more photos.
