Our vision is to connect, engage, and inspire all students in the Ayer Shirley Regional School District to reach academic excellence. We, the educators of the Ayer Shirley Regional School District, will instill habits of reflection and inquiry to challenge our students in setting ambitious academic and personal goals. Students will develop a strong voice to express thoughts and ideas in the community and the confidence to showcase their talents and successes in preparation for entry into college and the world of work.

Parents of Incoming Preschool & Kindergarten Students:  
Please look out for information sent to you about an opportunity to learn about our preschool and kindergarten programs. We will host informational sessions at both Lura A. White and Page Hilltop Elementary Schools- feel free to attend a session at a school of your choice.  We welcome you to the Ayer Shirley Regional School District and look forward to meeting you! 

Lunch Menu:
Parents like to help their children select their lunch choices beforehand. We send a paper copy home, yet, sometimes, these menus get lost.

Please click here to access the lunch menus online!

Jump Rope for Heart:
During the week of February 12, students in grades 1st through 5th will be participating in the American Heart Association Jump Rope for Heart Program during their PE class time. This is a wonderful program that helps raise money for heart research and education. Students will work in teams and travel from station to station participating in jumping activities. Please contact Mrs. Watelet if you have any questions.
