Re: Calendar Revision for the 2018-19 School Year
As you are aware, the 2018-19 school year has been a challenging year in regards to the weather. Due to blizzards and extremely cold temperatures, Ashby Schools experienced four school closing days, six two hour late starts, and one 12:30 early out. Knowing that instructional time is important for student achievement and for various other reasons, the Ashby School Board, in cooperation with Supt. Niemann, made the tough decision at the March 20th school board meeting to utilize the four scheduled “make-up” days which are designed into our annual school calendar to extend the school year and make up for lost instructional time. As such, students in grades K-11 will now be required to attend school on May 28th, 29th, and 30th. Additionally, pre-school will also not be in session during the extended days. This school year extension will NOT affect the scheduled May 26th graduation ceremony and seniors will not be required to return to school after that date.

Ashby students working as a team on the fluid power team challenge at ATCC.
These Ashby Arrow 8th graders attended and won the Team Challenge Fluid Power award held at Alexandria Community and Technical College on February 27. The competition is meant to give students the chance to think and work like engineers. The goal was for students to design and build a device able to move a block of wood to designated areas using only fluid power. There were 17 other teams from the area including Alexandria, Fergus Falls, and Minnewaska. The Ashby Arrows represented well and scored the most points earning them the trophy and medals for the top Team Challenge Champion Award!
