WE Day!

Ashern Cenrtal School had 12 Senior Years and 45 Middle Years students participate in WE Day this year! WE Day is all about making a difference and the students at ACS are taking action to be the change.

Currently, the grades 5-8 classes are trying to collect Non-Perishable goods for WE SCARE HUNGER.¬†Our new Senior Years group STAAACS (Students Taking Action At Ashern Central School) are first making a change locally by organizing and planning a school activity on Halloween. The activity is STAAACS take on Stephen Covey’s¬†Seventh Habit (Sharpening the Saw) of “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People“.


Terry Fox Run!

Our annual Terry Fox run took place September 28th/2017. The school set out a goal to raise $2000 this year through donations, lunch sales, baking sales and t-shirt sales. We came extremely close to our goal coming in at $1611


A huge shout out goes to Mrs. Lowery for organizing this event! A major thanks those who helped make this event a great success including the grade 9’s for preparing the lunch/baking, parents who helped with the contributions/baking, the grade 12’s who did an excellent job at setting up all of the water stations along the run and all of the staff who helped organize/supervise/prep the event!

Working together as a community, Ashern Central School was able to raise $1611 from the BBQ, selling t-shirts and the bake sale!
