April 26th to May 1st
Since 1995 the Ashland Education Foundation has been helping to bring innovative education into the Ashland Public Schools. This year, because we cannot host our usual in-person fundraisers the AEFI is holding it's first virtual fundraiser. The "Innovate to Educate" campaign will run from April 26-May 1st. Please join the campaign by donating today and help us continue to bring innovation into our classrooms!
Ashland Elementary STEAM Center
The AEFI has pleased to announce our next Innovation Campaign - the Ashland Elementary STEAM Center. This amazing project will leverage much of the learnings & success of the AIC while ensuring it is fully age-appropriate & right-sized for our elementary students. Its primary focus is to ensure that our younger students are getting regular access to many of the same STEAM tools & technologies that we have seen produce such great results at the AIC. In addition to that, this campaign also includes elements & technologies specifically targeting our ELL students as well as our students with disabilities to ensure our entire student population has the needed tools to reach their full potential. For full details on the program, please visit our STEAM Center page.
a big thank you to Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation for their $20,000 donation
