  • The only beverage allowed with snack is water.

  • Please notify your child’s teacher of any food allergies.

  • Due to health regulations, no food will be stored in the classroom overnight.

  • Snack time is voluntary, and bringing a daily, individual snack is the responsibility of the child.

Purchasing Snacks at School

  • ES students are not allowed to purchase snacks from the HS/MS clubs during the day without permission.

  • Students with parent permission to buy a snack must show their “snack card” to the GAO or person selling the snacks.

  • Parents of Grade 3,  4 and Grade 5 students may give their child permission to purchase 1 snack and 1 drink after lunch (lunch recesor before getting on the bus (going home).

  • Students may not borrow money or purchase snacks for another student.

  • Our goal is to promote healthy eating habits, which in turn stabilizes children’s energy and sharpens their minds. http://www.helpguide.org/life/healthy_eating_children_teens.htm

Birthday Book Club

English
中文

Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce that a new tradition is beginning at AST Library.  Honor your child’s birthday by donating a book to our school library. With your donation you can share the joy of your child’s birth and the joy of books with the entire school. You may donate a book any time that you choose. Summer birthdays can be celebrated in June, or early in the following school year. When your child donates a book, a photo will be taken and displayed in the library. The book will get a special donation label and your child will be the first to borrow it. In addition, donating students will be invited to a party given for students who donate books.

To ensure the enhancement of the library collection, to avoid duplication, and to ease the procurement of books, Ms. Wiebe has created a list of titles recommended for purchase and available at Caves Books or The Bookman store. Please get the list from Ms. Wiebe and advise her of the titles you wish to donate. Alternatively, Ms. Wiebe also has a list of books that can be ordered online, without shipping fee, from Book Depository.com or Better World Books.com

Thank you for your interest in expanding the library collection and making reading come alive for children. Please contact Ms. Wiebe with any questions.

親愛的家長,

很高興我們AST 圖書館的一項新傳統正在形成中,請您詳閱以下關於BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB (生日書社) 的訊息。

為榮耀您孩子的出生日,請在他們每年生日時捐一本好書給學校圖書館作為最佳紀念。透過這項捐贈,不僅分享了您孩子生日的喜悅,並透過所捐書籍帶給閱讀者的意義而延續擴展這份喜悅。您當然也可以在任何時候捐書給圖書館。倘若孩子的生日是在暑假期間,選擇在六月份學年結束前或八月份開學後捐書,我們都將非常歡迎。您為孩子生日捐書時,我們會為孩子拍照後將照片展示在圖書館內;您捐的書也會有特別的標示來紀念當次的捐贈。且,您的孩子當然就將是這本書的首位借閱者。此外,我們還會邀請有捐生日書的同學們一起參加特別的聚會。為了可以增加我們圖書館的館藏,避免與庫存重複浪費,以及方便您選購書籍,圖書館Ms. Wiebe老師已經準備有推薦書單,請您在買書之前,先向Ms. Wiebe老師索取她的書單,並讓她知道您想捐的書籍資料。另外,Ms. Wiebe還有從網路上訂購,而無須負擔運費的書單。如須更多細節資料,歡迎聯絡Ms. Wiebe,請直接發電郵到 swiebe@ast.tc.edu.tw。我們也將於近期在學校網頁上公布更詳細的書單訊息。謝謝您對於擴展圖書館藏及養成孩子們閱讀好習慣感到興趣。
