Dear AST Families and Friends,

Two of our clubs have made big news this week.

Team ASTonishing, our VEX Robotics Team, has been invited to the World’s competitions as one of only two teams representing Taiwan in that competition. The news article describing the announcement can be found here:  http://www.sydt.com.tw/e_news/K12-122/.

And...

Our fencing team won the Taichung Mayor’s Cup and will be representing Taichung City in the National level of competition.



Please congratulate both these AST club members when you have the opportunity.

In other quick reminders:

  • Monday, February 18th is a regular school, Day 1
  • Deposit of 45,000 NTD for the 2019 London Cultural Immersion Trip is due by Monday, February 25th
  • For the safety of everyone walking and driving on the hill, please take the drive up and down the mountain slowly. Our greatest fear is one of our kids being hit by a car and taking a few extra seconds to drive up and down the mountain might save a life.
  • Mini-MUN date change: April 13th

Have a great weekend,

Anthony

親愛的AST家長與朋友們,

這星期我們要特別表揚學校兩個傑出社團的表現都上了新聞。

我們先很自豪地再次恭賀AST參加VEX機器人比賽的學生團隊 - ASTonishing隊的成就!  他們已獲邀將參加在美國舉行的世界級比賽,台灣區有資格參加這次VEX最高階段比賽的學生團隊只有兩隊,我們的ASTnishing 就是其中之一。 相關的新聞資料請點閱這裡: http://www.sydt.com.tw/e_news/K12-122/.

同時...

我們學校的西洋擊劍隊今年也贏得了台中市長杯的比賽,並將代表台中市參加 "108年全國中等學校運動會"  國家級的比賽。

請大家有機會遇到這兩團隊伍的成員時,記得恭賀他們 !

重要事項,請注意:

  • 2月18日星期一是正常上課日,將依Day 1課表上課。
  • 參加2019 倫敦文化體驗之旅訂金新台幣45,000元,必須於2月25日星期一以前匯入學校帳戶。
  • 為保障每位行人或開車駕駛及乘客安全,請大家往返學校行駛於山路時,要特別放慢車速。學童的安全是我們最為重視的部分,希望大家都能保持耐心,放慢車速上、下山,多花一點點時間就能避免遺憾的事情發生,幾秒鐘之差也許就能保住生命。
  • 迷你MUN舉行的日期改成:4月13日星期六。

祝大家有個很棒的周末!

校長  金安東
