  • Welcome to our Classroom!!!

    Welcome to Mifflinburg Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Ashley Furman and I am very excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher for the coming school year. I am working hard to establish our classroom as a happy, exciting, comfortable, and safe learning environment where we all do our best. We will learn many interesting things.  I can't wait to for us to get to know each other and our classmates. 

     

    I hope you and your child are enjoying yourselves as you are getting ready for this new journey called “kindergarten life”!  There will be so many new things to learn and explore this year! Together, we will make this school year a successful one for your child! Kindergarten is such an exciting place to learn and grow and this year, you will see this growth in your own child.  I am pleased to be allowed to be apart of this exciting time in your child's life.
