Welcome to the Ashby Elementary School (AES) website. We hope it will serve both as a useful source of information and a valuable tool to access the resources available here at our school and beyond.

At AES, we believe that a solid education will be the key to students' success in the future. It is our goal to provide the best education possible. Together, we strive to ensure that every student achieves their full potential.  Please remember the motto painted in my office, as well as in the main hallway: All students can learn and succeed, but not on the same day in the same way. – William G. Spody.

To learn more about our philosophy, policies, and procedures, I invite you to read over the Parent/Student Handbook that is linked on the left under Student Life. I am always available to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have; please feel free to email me at agapp@nmrsd.org, or call me at 978-386-7266.  We look forward to a wonderfully productive and successful 2016-2017 school year!

~Mrs. Anne Cromwell-Gapp, M.Ed., Principal

Extended Day Learning - Day 1

AES Extended Day Classwork for Day 1 is located in the back pocket of your child's blue home school folder.


The snow day extended learning pilot program is an alternative way to make up snow-days (up to five) that has been accepted for this school year, to serve from during January 16th through April 1st.  Instead of making up snow days at the end of June, students will be given a variety of assignments that are either short-term, unit-based or a long-term project equal to multiple days of learning. These assignments will be due sometime after the snow day (s) has occurred. Each grade level will be different.   Students may work on the assignments during the snow day or choose to complete them afterwards, especially if they need help or clarification from their teachers. I am meeting with all Ashby staff the morning of January 11.  That same evening, January 11th, there will be a Parent Information Night beginning at 6:30 PM at the High School, which is open to all.

At the end of the pilot, the Snow Day Extended Learning committee will send out a survey to determine the strengths and areas of improvement for this initiative. The school committee will then be presented with a recommendation from the committee to either: adopt the Extended Learning for future years, continue with a revised pilot, or discontinue the program based on the results of the survey.

 A special thank you my colleague, Principal Janda, and all the members of the Snow Day Extended Learning Committee for their commitment to this initiative.
