The quiet school yard soon starts to fill with friends from the community, arriving teachers and students.
Ashley Bryan calls it the “That’s ME!” school.
Teachers Audrey Noether and Lauren Simmons welcome everyone and ask for hopes and good wishes from the group.
This year’s art teacher, Mary Lyman, is totally overwhelmed by all of the things Ashley has just asked her to memorize. (….just kidding M and A…)
Here’s to a great year for all of the new and returning students and their new teachers!
The Ashley Bryan School will have 12 (13?) students this year in grades K through 8. My husband and all of his siblings attended this school, their father attended this school, and both of our sons attended this school. A great island tradition.

What a sweet school–and so very different from my kids’ overcrowded schools. Our middle school has 1200 kids, and the high school has more than 2000!
It’s pretty different from just about anywhere. Your middle school population is almost 10 times the size of our whole town population!
Looks like the base of a column for WW. (already 1/2 done?)
We’ll see….(0% done right now)
Oh what I would give to have been brought up in this environment! I was one of 55 students in my geometry class in 10th grade…there are times when I don’t know the difference between a triangle and a circle!
I have to tell you, when I read your posts that are related to your Island Life, my mind immediately goes to Mayberry – obviously, the terrain and temperature differ, but it proves that it is the people that make the town!
What a sweet post!
We could use Andy, Barney, Aunt Bea and Opie over here!

Wow…I think you live in a place I call heaven. Perhaps one day I will get to visit. Have a wonderful year!
