Dear AST Family and Friends,

This past Monday we introduced our improved audio-visual equipment for the gymnasium by playing a Dragon themed stop-action movie made by three of our elementary students at our All-School assembly. The movie was impressive and well received by the entire audience. Bao was the leader of the development team and he will be presenting on Monday to our students about how they could make their own movie.

This Friday we celebrated the Elementary School Science Fair. Students' boards have been up all week in the C building foyer. Middle school and high schools students have been reviewing the projects and sharing in the excitement. On Friday, we held the Science Fair including students talking to parents about their projects and our award ceremony.

Next week on Saturday we will host our International Carnival and Open House. During the carnival, be sure to check out the friendly volleyball tournament and to find the pony exhibit. Thank you to all the parents supporting our kids in pulling together this event.

Here are a few scheduling notes:

Ÿ   One Hour After Normal Time - Bus Pick Up

Ÿ   8:30 am - Students Arrive

Ÿ   10:00 am - Carnival Begins

Ÿ   11:00 am - School Presentation

Ÿ   1:00 pm - School Presentation

Ÿ   2:00 pm - Carnival Ends

Ÿ   3:00 pm - Students May Depart (assuming cleanup is done)

Ÿ   3:45 pm - Buses Depart for Home

And, there is no school on Monday in lieu of the Saturday school day.

Finally, it is time for new school applicants to apply for the 2018-2019 school year. For guaranteed consideration, applications should apply by April 30th. After that date, applications will be considered as they come in and as space allows. If you know someone considering AST, please encourage them to get it touch with us now.

Have a great next week,

Anthony

親愛的AST家庭與朋友們:

這星期一的全校月會中,我們除了介紹學校體育館內全新設置的影音設備給大家外,還利用新設備播放了由三位AST小學生製作的恐龍主題影片。現場師生觀眾對這部影片都留下了深刻的印象。影片是由三年級的Bao Yuen所帶領的團隊製作的,他還將於下星期一為其他同學簡報他們這部影片的製作過程。

小學部本學年的科學展覽活動則在星期五時進入最後高潮階段。這星期在行政大樓一樓大廳展出的小學生科展作品,很多初、高中部同學都已興奮的觀賞並分享過。在星期五當天,小學生們親自為參觀家長解說他們展出的作品,最後,被評選為優秀的作品還獲得頒獎表揚。

下星期六,3月17日AST國際嘉年華會與開放參觀日即將到來。歡迎大家當天記得前來AST校園與我們同歡,並記得看看只限嘉年華會才有的AST排球友誼賽和AST校園內的可愛小馬。感謝所有家長對孩子們的支持,讓我們能擁有這些美好的活動。

以下是嘉年華會當天的幾個重要時間點:

Ÿ   上學校車比平常晚一小時到站

Ÿ   上午8:30 – 學生開始到校

Ÿ   上午10:00 – 嘉年華會活動正式開始

Ÿ   上午11:00 –課程說明會

Ÿ   下午1:00 – 課程說明會

Ÿ   下午2:00 – 嘉年華會活動結束

Ÿ   下午3:00 – 學生可以放學回家(須在確定已完成各自攤位的清潔工作後)

Ÿ   下午3:45 – 放學校車依平常時間發車

3月19日星期一全校因星期六嘉年華會補假一天,同學們不用到學校來。

最後,關於AST申請入學部分,我們已經開始接受2018-2019學年的入學申請了。學校將於4月30日統計出各年級可開放申請入學的名額,在4月30日之後才提出申請入學者,我們將視各班級缺額決定是否通知申請者進一步參加入學考。如果您認識在考慮申請就讀AST的朋友,請鼓勵他們現在就和學校聯絡。

祝福大家有個很棒的下星期,

校長
