Walk to School

Ashley Elementary celebrated “National Walk to School Day” by walking from Walter and Mary Burke Park to school led by Mrs. Hutton, our Physical Education teacher and Mrs. VanHulle, our Principal.  This is a global event that involves communities from

more than 40 countries walking to school on the same day.  We had many staff members, students , siblings and parents participate in this event.  We would like to thank the New Baltimore Police Department for crossing us at the intersections on the walk.

A great time was had by all! Click on the photo to see more!

Field Day

Here is link to the album for 2016 Field Day for Ashley Elementary:

Battle of the Books

On Wednesday, May 25th Ashley Elementary school had a Battle of The Books in-school competition. Forty students at Ashley Elementary were selected to be part of ‘Battle of the Books’. Battle of the Books is a friendly competition between students. Students compete in teams similar to the style of competition in the TV Series ‘Family Feud.’ This year’s completion was the first one at Ashley Elementary. Based on overall reading scores, avid readers from fourth and fifth were provided with a high achievement task. This was an opportunity to meet the needs of our students who are advanced readers. They were to complete ten chapter books over the course of three months. There were ten teams with four team members on each team. The competition was an eight round battle. They had to answer comprehension questions and advanced by gaining points for correct questions. The team of four with the most points after the final round was declared the winner. First and Second place teams received gift cards for book purchases and all students received accomplishment medals. Our students’ parents were invited to come observe and cheer on the teams. Our Guest Judges who attended: Anchor Bay Community Council member Lynne Hoover Musilli, retired librarian Beth Bagley-Stanton, New Baltimore Mayor John Dupray, and Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel.

Quiz Bowl

This year Ashley Elementary had the first Anchor Bay Quiz Bowl Team. These students worked after school under the coordination of Mrs. Bergeron and Ms. Osterland focusing on social studies content and current even knowledge. Our two teams competed in the state wide competition on May 13th. We are pleased to announce our students took 2nd and 3rd place in this state wide competition!!!!
