Dear AST Family and Friends,

Save the date (March 17) for the AST International Carnival. It is a great opportunity to celebrate this long standing AST tradition. It is also the perfect time to bring a friend and show them what AST is all about. Information sessions for perspective parents are available at 11:00 and 1:00.

In terms of busing for current students on March 17, we will have regular buses in the morning and afternoon. The morning buses will run one hour later than the normal schedule. The afternoon buses will run at the normal time. There will be no late buses on March 17.

Finally, I will be traveling to Seoul, Korea from March 10 through March 15 as part of a WASC Visiting Team to an international school there. As part of WASC, this is a general responsibility to evaluate and provide feedback to other schools that go through their self study process. This is the same self study process that we are currently going through at AST as part of our regular WASC review process. This is also a great opportunity to talk to other educators in another setting and look at ideas that may be useful to bring back to AST.

Have a great next week,

Anthony

College Tour @ AST

AST is proud to again host the AEO College Tour on March 13, from 12:30 to 1:30. The daily schedule will be adjusted so that all high school students can attend this short fair. Over 20 schools will be represented at this college fair.

 

Tea Time

Thank you to the ES parents who attended the Tea Time on Thursday. We will be hosting middle school parents on Thursday, March 8, and high school parents on Thursday, March 22.

親愛的AST家庭與朋友們:

歡迎在3月17日星期六前來AST校園參加我們今年的國際嘉年華會,和我們一同歡度這個AST傳統活動。當天校園將開放參觀,提供您與親朋好友一起逛逛孩子們校園的絕佳機會;同時我們也將在上午11點和下午1點兩個時段,分別為有興趣讓孩子到AST就讀的家庭安排兩場說明會,請您也與好友們分享這個訊息。

關於3月17日的校車接送,目前搭乘校車上學的同學在3月17日當天仍可如平常搭乘校車上學與放學。不過請注意:3月17日上午上學校車將會晚1小時發車;下午校車將如正常放學時間出發,當天沒有晚班放學校車。

最後再分享一項訊息,我將會在3月10日到3月15日前往韓國首爾出差,擔任WASC (美國西部學校和學院協會) 評鑑委員參訪一所當地的國際學校。AST作為WASC已認證的學校,評鑑其他學校的自主研究過程並給予回饋建議是我們應負責任的一部份。目前我們學校也同樣在執行著經過WASC評鑑過的自主研究項目。這次我到首爾的國際學校參訪,將是個在不同環境中和其他教育者進行交流的很好機會,希望能藉此機會也帶回一些對我們學校有益的想法。

祝福大家有個很棒的下星期,

校長

金安東

 

大學聯合招生在AST

AST很榮幸今年再度邀請到AEO College Tour於3月13日星期二中午12:30到1:30在我們校園進行大學聯合招生說明會。屆時將有超過20所美國大學招生部門代表與AST全體高中生共處一堂,為我們學生提供各所學校入學的相關資訊。配合這次的活動,當天我們高中部上課時間表也將會有些微的調整。

 

茶會時間

感謝小學部家長上星期四撥冗前來學校與校長茶會。下星期四也就是3月8日,還有一場校長與初中部家長的茶會,另外,在3月22日星期四同樣是下午2:30,則是校長與高中家長的茶會時間。歡迎家長們踴躍參加。
