Other Information


I am currently in my seventh year at Ashville Elementary School and 3rd year as its principal.  The students at AES keep me very busy. I am very thankful for the parents, faculty, and students at AES.  The hard work and dedication of the parents and students of the Ashville community allows our school to perform at one of the highest levels in the county.  We are truly a family at AES and I take great pride in keeping the students safe and providing an atmosphere conducive to learning. I currently reside in the city of Leeds with my wife and youngest son who will be a college freshman this year. I have a total of 4 children, 2 daughters in law, one son in law, and 4 grandchildren. I take my job very seriously at AES but I have been known to have a little fun too. I will continue to work  with the parents, students, and other stakeholders in the Ashville community to help make Ashville Elementary School the best that it can possibly be.

Welcome to AES! My goal for this web page is to give you up to date and pertinent information in order to make your experience with AES as wonderful as possible. Please feel free to email me at or call the school at 205-594-5242 if you need further assistance.  Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of your student's educational experiences.

It's the first day of school for Penelope Rex, and she can't wait to meet her classmates. But it's hard to make human friends when they're so  delicious! That is, until Penelope gets a taste of her own medicine and finds she may not be at the top of the food chain after all.
