It is with deep sadness and many fond memories that I share with the Newton South community the passing of Ashley Anderton, our beloved English teacher, on June 22 of this year. Her husband Derek Van Beever, Newton South science teacher, and their family have created a memorial fund in Ashley’s name to benefit cancer research and to provide scholarships for Newton South students.
You can find information about the fund here:
For all of Mr. VanBeever’s current and former students, he knows you support him and his family (including his eldest son who joins the South community this year), and they want to begin this fall in as normal a way as possible and focused on the year ahead.
Thank you for your understanding, and for your support.
