Dear AST Family and Friends,

Thank you to all the parents that came out to attend our College Planning parent information session, our high school Tea Time session, and the Spring Concert. Valuable information, relevant ideas, and a diverse musical performance made for an excellent Thursday afternoon on campus.

This week, we have administered the MAPS assessment for the spring. We will need to complete make-ups tests next week and we will share the results once it is finished.

For the next two weeks, high school students will be taken Advanced Placement (AP) exams. If they take a test, they are excused from classes on that day. Please encourage these students to get a restful night's sleep the night before and to eat a healthy breakfast on the day of the exam. (These are really always good advice, but especially important for days like these.)

The course selection process for next year has just barely begun this week by talking to the current 10th-grade students. We will share all the forms and information related to course selection with all of the parents next week so that families have time to talk about their preferences together.

Have a great next week,

Anthony

親愛的AST家庭與朋友們:

謝謝您撥冗前來參加升大學計畫座談會、家長與校長茶會,還有AST春季音樂會。很高興能與您共享這寶貴資訊交流、提出相關想法和欣賞不同類型音樂表演的星期四午後AST校園。

這星期我們進行了MAPS本學年的春季測驗,但還有些同學因故缺考,須在下星期完成補考。等大家都完成各自的測驗後,我們會將考試結果通知大家。

接下來兩星期,高中部同學將進行年度AP測驗。參加考試同學,當天可以不用依照日常課表上課。請家長鼓勵參加考試的孩子,在考試前一天晚上要有充足的睡眠,考試當天也務必要吃健康的早餐 (雖然這建議在平常就很有用,但在這重要的考試期間,睡眠與早餐仍是特別需要重視的)。

有關下學年選修的課程,這星期我們剛開始向目前10年級的同學解說。下星期我們將會分享選課表和相關資訊給家長們,以便家長與孩子一起討論適合他們的選修科目。

祝大家都有個很棒的下星期,

校長
