|Your Fundraising Dollars at Work
The PTO does a lot of fundraising - ever wonder where that money goes? The PTO spends almost $30,000 a year bringing enrichment programs to the schools! The PTO's enrichment chairs work closely with the teachers at each school to bring in programs that fit in with each grade's curriculum and enhance the students' learning. Last year, the programs sponsored by the PTO included:
So to everyone who has contributed to the PTO, and helped enrich our students' educations: THANK YOU!

|Recognize Excellence with an Ashland A+
Have you said "thank you" lately? Is there someone whoís made a difference to you or your child recently?
Letís foster a community of appreciation, starting with a simple thank you to someone who has made a difference.
Think about a teacher, administrator, building staff member, or school volunteer who has had a real impact in our
lives and the lives of our children. Now you can make a difference in their world by honoring their hard work and
dedication. Put a smile on a face and warmth in the heart by the simple act of sending a thank you card recognizing
when someone goes above and beyond.
Click on the link to the right to print out an Ashland A+ card or stop by the front office of any school. Pick up a card,
write your note of gratitude, and either drop it in the box at school or deliver it yourself. That small gesture
will go a long way!
Thank you for doing your part to Recognize Excellence in the Ashland Schools!
This program is brought to you by the Superintendentís Advisory Council.
