Our meal payment and application processing system has changed. We are no longer using Titan. Your student accounts, including account balance, has all been rolled over to mealtime. If you had an account with Titan for online payments, it has been closed. You will need to set up a new account for your students in the mealtime system. You will be prompted to set up a username and password. Your students will be identified with the same student body number they used for Titan and for Powerschool. That number is the same as long as they are students within the Ashland school district. If you do not have that number, you can get it from the office at your school, or reach out to nutrition services directly at nutritionservice@ashland.k12.or.us Once you have an account set up you will be able to add funds to your students account, or apply for free or reduced meal benefits. Note, if you already had an account set up with Mealtime from 4 years ago, that account information is no longer valid and you need to set up a new account. https://www.ashland.k12.or.us/o/asd/page/nutrition-services

Please join Diane Berry to learn more about how we can understand, support, and confidently guide our middle school students with ADHD. Kids with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) struggle with self-regulation, organization, and emotional management. When you add the challenges of puberty, rapid brain development, and tween angst โ€”including hormones, lagging communication skills, and a heightened attention to peers โ€” parents can experience some especially turbulent and yes, frustrating parenting adventures. At this workshop, we will cover: -Goals for your child -Definitions of ADHD -Understanding Executive Functions -Possible challenges during middle school years -Supports and Strategies -Materials and Resources -Exceptional qualities and talents This event will NOT be streamed via zoom. A power point presentation will be made available on our district website here: https://www.ashland.k12.or.us/page/parent-seminars If you have questions about this event, please reach out to rebecca.gyarmathy@ashland.k12.or.us

Today, we want to give a shoutout to the amazing classified staff at Ashland Middle School! These unsung heroes work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep our school running smoothly. From maintaining the facilities to managing student records, they play a crucial role in making our school a great place to learn and grow. We also want to recognize the recent act of kindness from our teachers and administrators who stepped up and took over their duties during lunch so they could take a well-deserved break.
