Dear AST Family and Friends,

We would like to thank all those parents that joined us on campus this week. Some were here for conferences; some joined us for the Tea Time; still, others were on campus to volunteer and support teachers directly. It is always wonderful to have parents on campus in any of these roles. We very much appreciate your input.

Next week, we will be holding the Spring MAPS testing where students in grades 4 through 10 will be tested in English, Math, and Language. This will allow us to reflect on student growth over the course of the school year and to set new goals for next year. The best thing parents can do to help their children prepare is to ensure that they are getting a good night's sleep each night and eating breakfast each morning.

Also next week, we have another busy Thursday. On Thursday, we will have a College Planning session for parents with "question and answer" time hosted by Mr. Norton and Ms. Wilson from 1:30 to 2:30 with tea time afterward. From 2:30 to 3:30 we will host Tea Time for the high school parents. And, at 4:00 pm, we will host the Spring concert in the theatre.

Have a great next week,

Anthony

親愛的AST家庭與朋友們:

願藉此機會,謝謝家長們這星期踴躍到學校來參與孩子們的活動。不論是參加親師會議、學生主導會議,或是參加與校長的茶會,還是一直都在協助老師們的志工家長們,謝謝您! 學校裡有家長們默默扮演無名英雄的角色來支持我們,真是太棒了! 我們非常感謝您的付出。

下星期,學校將為4到10年級同學舉行春季MAPS測驗,內容包括英文寫作、文法和數學。這次測驗結果將可與上學期的結果比較,反映出同學們本學年在這些學科的成長,並協助我們為下學年訂定新的目標。家長能幫助孩子準備這測驗的最好方法,就是確保孩子每天夜裡都有好的睡眠,並且天天都有吃早餐。

同樣是下星期,我們將會有個忙碌的星期四,5月4日。當天下午在與校長茶會進行前1:30到2:30時段,會先由Mr. Norton 和Ms. Wilson兩位老師為家長們進行一場 “College Planning” 升大學計畫座談會。然後在2:30到3:30校長與高中家長茶會結束後,AST春季音樂會接著將於4點在學校禮堂展開。歡迎家長們踴躍前來參與當天的活動。

祝大家都有個很棒的下星期,

校長
