Dear AES Families,
On behalf of the Ashdown Elementary School (AES) staff, I am happy to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. AES is a kindergarten through fifth-grade campus. With this change, there will be a lot of familiar faces, as well as some new ones. One thing that did not change is the hard work that our staff will put in to provide our students with a safe learning environment where our students will be successful!
One of the greatest resources at AES is the parents/guardians of our students. Communication is the key factor in building the bond between the school and parents/guardians. To keep informed you can follow us on our Facebook page (AES Facebook), District Facebook page (Ashdown Facebook), and the AES page on the district website (AES Website). Most importantly, register to receive messages through Remind from your child’s teacher.
At AES, the staff works diligently to see all students succeed. Each day, students will be given opportunities to demonstrate their strengths through activities that are both engaging and challenging. Teachers will give guided instruction as students complete these activities to ensure their success.
I know that with the many changes and adjustments we had to do during the last school year, there will still be adjustments to our schedules and activities this year. We plan to make every effort to keep our parents notified as changes are made. My focus is on your child’s safety as we move forward while following district, state, and federal guidelines.
Attendance is very important in order for your child to learn and grow to be prepared for their next school year, so we are working on incentives and rewards for those with low absences, checkouts, or tardies.
In conclusion, I look forward to an exceptional year at AES with you and your child. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at the school.
James K. Jones
