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.
