Dear AST Families and Friends,
Thank you to everyone that came out and supported our students last weekend at the various events in which AST participated. We appreciate both your support and being able to enjoy celebrating our successes together. One particular award earned last weekend which aligns so well with our core values of Excellence, Integrity, and Responsibility came from the VEX robotic competition. Our team earned the Excellence award for their tremendous attention to detail and thorough work. We cannot be prouder of how well they represented our school.
We look forward to sharing pictures and reports from all those events next week. As I write this letter, Ms.Tung, Ms. Herding, and I are at the EARCOS Leadership Conference in Kuala Lumpur. We are attending sessions and listening to speakers talking about best practices and current research related to standards-based grading, using data to improve student learning, and what we know about the unknown future. Much of this reinforces things that we already know and are working towards implementing at AST, but new insights are always gleaned from these conferences.
We look forward to being back at campus for Spirit Week next week.
Have a great weekend,
