They are recurring antagonists towards the Recess Gang, enough so that when they give great tickets to Spinelli, they see it as a trick. They have been known to have ideas that can do damage to the playground itself, while they are benefitted, for example, a rating system that caused catastrophic damage to the playground's balance of nature, until the Recess Gang managed to fix it.
They have also been known to be rather unfair and cruel to unpopular kids such as Gus, enough so that they jinx him, leaving him having to not speak until someone says his name, which they intended to keep from happening. Gus got into some major trouble for this, and was almost transferred until TJ and his gang set the record straight, freeing Gus from the jinx in the process.
They have a tradition called Purple day where they wear only purple clothes to celebrate the day they first formed their clique. Ashley A forgot this at one point, and for this, she was kicked out temporarily and she was forced to hang out with Gretchen for some time.

Spinelli's first name is Ashley, so she is only a member by association, and she does not partake in the Ashleys' snobbery.
