The ending of the 2019-2021 School year showed us that anything can happen. We ended the year in a Pandemic Quarantine. We began our 2020-2021 school year in a "virtual situation" along with adding the Ashland Virtual Learning Center. As we continue this school year it is our hope to continue to move learning forward. Data form our MAP and STAR assessments have shown we have indeed progressed in all academic areas. We will continue to utilize COVID-19/CDC protocols and I am thrilled to continue my leadership of Crabbe Elementary School.

Parents continue to trust us to protect your scholar(s) during this difficult time of education history.

We will get through this together! 



Uriah A. Tolbert, Ed.S



My career in education began in 2010 at Yates Elementary School in Lexington, KY as the Music Specialist/Interventionist. There I taught K-5 for 5 years with reading and math RtI (Response to Intervention) in both primary and intermediate grades. My focus while in this position was also the implementation of reading and math while having fun through playful activities during my music instruction.


In 2015 I transferred to Mary Todd Elementary to help aid in their behavior management and implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports by becoming the Professional Growth and Effectiveness Systems Coach for Behavior & Discipline (PGES Coach for short). This gave me the opportunity to showcase my leadership qualities and abilities to move scholars forward in the behavior MTSS process.


I am continuing looking forward in taking Crabbe Elementary School "learning to another dimension" and I hope you are excited and ready to shine together! Please feel free to contact me as needed... And remember, it's a Tiger Thing here at Crabbe Elementary and we are glad to have your scholar here!
