Welcome back to school, A-Team!
At Ashdown Junior High, our mission is to be a school of excellence! We are scholars. We are
friends. We are family. We are A-Team! We strive to reach our mission each day by providing
our students with a school home that has high expectations for learning, a positive mindset for
all students and staff, and a focus on teamwork where goals are achieved by working together.

One core method used to achieve our mission is our advisory program. Each day students will
work in a small group with one teacher that serves as an advisor to students. Students will
create their own goals, track their goals, and complete activities during advisory that promote
social and emotional awareness and well-being, conflict resolution, and communication skills. In
addition, each student is scheduled in a math, reading, and science group that will extend their
learning in each area with a personalized approach to intervention and extension during RTI
time (response to intervention).

This year’s theme is, “Go For the Gold!”. This Olympic theme is intended to motivate students to
be intentional with setting academic, behavioral, and personal goals for the year and tracking
their progress. We look forward to seeing students take control of their achievement through the
implementation of student-led conferences where they will facilitate progress meetings between
their parents and teacher.

Parents are invited to learn about school events and other student-focused issues throughout
the year with the Principal at the “Pop in with the Principal” meetings each quarter in the AJHS
library. These meetings and other school events will be communicated with parents most readily
through the Ashdown Public Schools Facebook page or by parents signing up for Remind free
text messages from the principal (information listed below).

Please feel free to contact me anytime by emailing me at [email protected] or
scheduling an appointment with me by calling 870-898-5138. I am looking forward to another
great year at Ashdown Junior High School!
Go Panthers! Go A-Team!
