Hello there! My name is Ashlei Proffitt. I have been teaching a Newport Grammar for 12 years. I am also enrolled in the Masters of Education online program at Cumberland University. I am so excited to be in First Grade this year! You will find many updates here on my web-page. Also be sure to stay up to date on  Classroom Dojo. Classroom Dojo App can be added to any device or found at  Aspen is also a great way to keep up to date with your child's grades. You can  access Aspen from our school web page by clicking the tab labeled Aspen, or the link below. I am looking forward to a wonderful year! Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Classroom Wish List

Classroom donations are always appreciated, but not expected. It truly helps make it our year more successful. The following items are needed continuously throughout the school year. 

-Clorox wipes


-Treasure box items (Happy Meal toys, small toys, erasers, ect)

-Individually wrapped candy, sweet tarts, starburst, chocolates


Online Amazon Classroom Wish-List

I have had a couple parents ask me if there were some things I needed for my classroom, or items that I would be purchasing for my students this year. So, I went ahead and created an Amazon wish list of some of items that I will be purchasing at some point this year. Some of the things include: bulk Christmas gifts items to make stockings for each child, Christmas ornament kits, treasure chest items, individual learning games (because of Covid-19), items for my room, and things I think the kids might enjoy. This is in no way expected! I usually purchase most of these things throughout the school year and create an Amazon list so that I can add and remove as I go along. You are welcome to take a look at the link below. As always, I am so incredibly appreciative for the support you have given me this school year. It takes a village to take care of our wonderful children. I love each our your children very much! :)
