PAWS, the Detroit Tiger mascot, visited Ashley Elementary on March 21st to help the students and staff celebrate March is Reading Month. He performed a skit to the book "Casey at the Bat", which was read by Ms. Osterland, a 4th grade teacher at Ashley. First grade teacher, Ms. Harrington, welcomed PAWS along with the student body who was very excited to see him. After the book was read, trivia questions were asked of the student body and the student who answered the trivia received a small prize from PAWS. The performance was enjoyed by all who saw it and we look forward to seeing PAWS perform again at the Detroit Tiger games this spring and summer. Click here for more photos.

2012 Poetry Slam

A Poetry Slam is a celebration of the Spoken Word. Ashley Elementary held their annual Poetry Slam on June 6, 2012 with 28 contestants competing. These students were 4th and 5th graders and 16 finalists were chosen by judges holding up scores after they recited their poetry by memory. Kevin Grammens was our official Slammaster and did an wonderful job helping the students out with their poetry as well as the students doing an equally awesome job. Our top 5 students were Cali Rager, 1st place, with Colleen Benoit, Lucas Paschall, Katie Greenberg and Madison Paul the runner ups. The audience enjoyed this event immensely and we look forward to next years event. Click here for more photos.
