Path to the Future

For the past several years at Ashburton, we have been working on a project to build a “Path to the Future” and transform the area located between our original school building and our new addition into a courtyard with a customized brick design. This area was designed to provide additional space where students & staff can hold school activities, socialize and enjoy the outdoors and is additionally special because it includes personalized bricks from the Ashburton community! A large number of pavers have been installed but many more need to be filled to continue our legacy.


Due to COVID this project has been on hold since 2020 and bricks from 2019 were not able to be installed but will be installed this summer. We are now continuing to take orders for the “Path to the Future” project. Once we have enough orders, the additional blank bricks will be replaced with your custom engraved bricks. We hope everyone will take advantage of this opportunity to become a part of Ashburton Elementary School’s history by purchasing a brick engraved with your child(ren)’s and/or family name, a memorial tribute, a special event, class tribute, or the name of a community business. These bricks are a great gift idea for the departing 5th grade students/class.


Funds raised from the sale of engraved bricks will help purchase furniture, equipment, and other campus beautification projects needed during the school year and beyond.
