Dear AST Families and Friends,


This week, while our students primarily focused on their academics, a lot of planning was happening behind the scenes. Final touches were put on tonight’s Family Fun Night at Tiger Sports. The last logistical questions were settled about today’s club fair. Activities for the elementary school Chinese New Year celebration were designed. Details for the International Carnival and Open House on February 28 are coming together. Long range plans for our anniversary celebration events continue to be fleshed out. We look forward to these regular events throughout 2019.


So, please save these dates:

  • No classes February 4-8 for Chinese New Year.
  • Classes resume on February 11th
  • AST International Carnival on February 28th
  • AST mini-MUN on March 2nd
  • TAIMUN on April 17 - 19th


As a reminder for anyone unfamiliar with trying to drive during the Chinese New Year holiday, we would like to include this article that describes the heavy traffic and high-occupancy rules in effect during this special time of year. A further reminder is that garbage services and open hours for many businesses are altered during this holiday.


Have a great week,

Anthony


親愛的AST家長與朋友們,


本週當學生們都主要關注於課業學習時,有很多活動計劃其實也同時在進行當中。今晚在Tiger 球の運動館就將有我們AST家庭娛樂之夜活動。而今天下午的每週集會活動時間中的社團嘉年華活動,各社團都將為全校同學展現它們的特色與聚會活動等細節。目前小學部正積極在設計農曆新年慶祝活動。 AST年度國際嘉年華和校園開放參觀日即將合併於228紀念日舉行,每個攤位的整合與分工計畫也正進行中。最重要的是我們慶祝校慶的一連串活動同時也在進行與持續規劃中,我們將有長期且充實的活動來歡慶AST創校30周年。2019年讓我們一起期待學校整年度將持續舉辦的各種活動。


因此,請注意下列行事曆上重要日期:

  • 農曆年期間,2月4日到8日一整星期都不用到校上課
  • 農曆年後,2月11日星期一開始上課
  • AST 30周年國際嘉年華會將於2月28日 (228紀念日)舉行
  • AST mini-MUN模擬聯合國會議演練活動將於3月2日星期六舉行
  • TAIMUN XVII(第17屆台灣模擬聯合國會議)將於4月17日至19日舉行


建議對於台灣地區在農曆年間的交通狀況不是很清楚的人,在農曆年假期間若要開車出門的話,請先查詢一下各地交通狀況與高速公路高乘載管制等規定,以免遭遇塞車等不便。更進一步並要提醒一下,春節期間,包括收垃圾的時間和許多企業或餐廳等的營業時間等都可能和平常不同,請務必事先問清楚,做好準備。


祝 大家都有很棒的一周,

校長 金安東
