Ashley Jack

"Our family would like to thank Ms. Ashley for working so hard with our son. Not only does she push him to be a better student, she and her staff also work with him diligently to try to increase his strength. She always stays in communication with us, gives us updates, and made his first year of school a much easier transition from home life. She goes above and beyond and has set great standards for other staff to follow. We couldn't be more grateful for her and her entire classroom staff."

Our son went from being scared to go to school in the beginning to now begging us to go to learn and interact with friends. She engages the kids in such fun activities and experiments. She also always gives us updates and stays in communication with us, making the first year out of home an easier transition. Thank you, Ms. Lisa, so much!”

My daughter has learned so much under her care, and I can’t thank her enough! My only wish is that Naomi will continue to have amazing, thoughtful and intelligent teachers such as Ms. Carlson to continue her lifelong love of learning! Ms. Carlson, please keep up the work you do! Your actions and teachings do not go unnoticed.”

Teacher Appreciation Week 2022

Thank you, teachers! This year for Teacher Appreciation Week and Teacher Appreciation Day, we asked students, families and staff to thank their favorite RPS 205 teacher – and to tell us what makes them special. We had many fantastic responses, and we’re sharing our favorites on the 205 VIBE.
