Dear AST Families and Friends,

Big Thanks

We would like to send a big thanks to the Parent Association (PA) for their successful bake sale yesterday. They continue to raise funds to support projects around AST and this sale is helping to support the elementary school library renovation.

In the PA meeting yesterday, new officers were elected for two year terms. These include Eunice Wang for High School Representative, Chia Fen Hsieh for Middle School Representative, Sally Wu for Treasurer, and Debra Liu for President. We appreciate their deep commitment to AST and willingness to serve in this capacity. We would also like to thank Melanie Hung, Jessica Wang, Jasmine Chung, Jane Hung, Rachel Chang, Amy Chao, Rosy Chen, Sylvia Juan, and Katrina Chiou. These parents are completing their two-year term with the PA and have had a tremendous positive impact on our school. We appreciate and thank them for their service.

We would like to say thank you and congratulations to the high school Bells Choir, the Chamber Music Club, and to Michael Wiles for their excellent performance at the Spring Concert on Thursday.

Roots and Shoots Program at AST

Each student in the elementary school planted either a cinnamon plant or garcinia plant and took these plants home this week. This program raises awareness around environmental responsibility.

Thanks for a great week,

AP考試

今年各科AP考試將從下星期一(5月1日) 開始分別進行,共為期兩星期。請注意確定您參加考試的孩子每天有充足的睡眠並且要吃早餐,特別是參加考試當天 (因考試時間較長,可能影響到原午餐時間)。

AST根與芽計畫

每位小學部同學這星期都種植了一顆肉桂植物或籐本植物,並還將帶回自己家中照顧。這是小學部‟根與芽計畫ʺ活動,希望藉此活動,提高同學們對環境責任的認知。

感謝這美好的一周,
