2018 Teacher Appreciation

Untitled drawing (9)

Wondering what your teacher’s favorite things are?  Click this link

 

The students and parents of Ashland Ridge Elementary school are so lucky to have some of the best teachers in the world. Our teachers “color our world” every single day, by leading our children to be lifelong learners and kind, caring people. The PTO would like your help in showing our wonderful teachers how much we appreciate all they do for our students.

This year’s “Teacher Appreciation Week” is planned for May 6-10. The PTO is planning to “color” the teacher lounge each day of the week by providing a trail mix/snack bar, home made treats, a breakfast buffet, a fruit and yogurt bar, and a lunch catered by Panera, and we need your help to make this happen! Please consider donating something from the list here:

Click here to sign up to bring something

Donations can be dropped off at Ashland Ridge, either in the office, or the teacher lounge, and need to be at school by 7:15 the morning of the day they will be available to our teachers. (The food for the Wednesday morning “Breakfast Buffet” needs to be at school by 7:15am, even though it is a late start morning. This is early, so please let me know if you need my help in getting your item to school, I’m happy to assist!) I am more than happy to arrange to pick up your item up from you, or you may drop items off at my house, and I will get them to school. Whatever works best for you!

Thank you so much for your help in making the Ashland Ridge Teacher Appreciation Week “colorful” this year!

2018 School Directory

It is Ankeny District policy for school staff not to share student or parent information.  This is to protect the privacy of our families.   It is also district policy that no child can hand out invitations at school.  This is to promote a feeling of family within our school.

As a result, it can be difficult to send out invitations or contact other parents.  Ashland Ridge PTO has created an online directory to make this a bit easier.  Parents must opt-in to the directory by adding their family information below.  Once added, parents will receive the phone numbers and email addresses of other parents who have chosen to be part of the directory.  The directory is grade-level specific, so it is important to fill out your information for each child.

 

Please add your information to the links below: 

Preschool

Kindergarten

First Grade

Second Grade

Third Grade

Fourth Grade

Fifth Grade

**Please note:  The directory is manually sent out by our volunteers.  Please allow 5-7 days for the directory to arrive in your email.  Thank you for your patience!!
