Dear AST Families and Friends,
Welcome to 2019. We are excited to be back together for our second semester and the kickoff of our 30th anniversary. AST was founded in 1989 with modest roots and now it is a dynamic, exciting place for personalized education and exploration of passion. Our students attend great universities, win awards, and return as successful alumni. Some of those alumni joined us this week for a basketball round-robin between an alumni team, a teacher team, our Varsity boys and our JV boys basketball teams. It was a fun event and it was great to reconnect with those alumni.
We wanted to quickly remind parents that our Activity Schedule has moved from Mondays to Fridays and it has been adjusted to make lunch and passing breaks a little less tight and more in line with other days. We would also like to remind you about things coming up next week:
- The Shakespeare Experience - many of our students in middle and high school will travel to the Taichung National Theatre for an instructional experience about understanding and performing Shakespearean plays.
- Parent Association Meeting - come join our PA on Thursday, at 2:00 pm as they prepare for the International Carnival on February 28.
- Tea Time with the Directors - it has been too long since we have sat down together to simply listen to your ideas and concerns -- Parents, let’s reconnect on Friday, January 25th, at 1:30 pm.
Have a great week,
