A Letter from Sue Phillips: 2021-2022

  • Dear Aston Families:

    On behalf of the entire Aston Elementary staff, welcome to the 2021 - 2022 school year. We are looking forward to a year filled with new learning opportunities that will promote and empower students. Our theme this year is Back in Aston!

    The Aston Elementary curriculum is comprehensive and designed to encourage problem solving and critical thinking. The core curriculum includes Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. We also offer the following related arts; Art, Music, Physical Education, Technology, and Character Education. Our teachers work hard to differentiated instruction in person and virtually to meet the needs of all learners.

    Students at various grade levels are invited to participate in school programs including chorus, band, student council, newspaper, safety patrol, Math 24 and Reading Olympics. Local and global charitable projects take place throughout the school year and serve to provide authentic life lessons. Additional real-world learning opportunities are embedded to make certain our children have a well-rounded educational experience.

    Two essential components to student success are parent involvement and communication. Student achievement is positively impacted when parents create a home environment that encourages education and when a home/school relationship is established through continuous communication.

    Involvement can be as simple as talking to your child daily about school, working with your child on homework or school projects, and communicating regularly with your child’s teacher. Other opportunities to become directly involved in school activities include joining the Aston PTL.

    Thank you in advance for your continued support.

    Sue Phillips
    Aston Principal
