Dear AST Family and Friends,
There is something for everyone as we start to wrap-up our school year. Tonight, we honor our student-athletes at the Sports Party. Tomorrow, the high school students enjoy their end of year prom. And after today, the seniors are finished with their scheduled course time. They will return at the end of the year for graduation rehearsal and the graduation ceremonies.
For the rest of us, next week is a relatively normal week and the last two weeks are chalked full of celebrations, end of year performances and showcases.
We would like to invite parents of students entering 9th or 10th grade next year to join us on Tuesday, May 22 (next week) at 2:00 pm for an hour-long session about college planning specific to those grade levels and what parents can specifically do to help their children to consider and plan for right now. We will also talk about course selection in general and specific to AST and answer questions about SAT and AP. We look forward to seeing you then.
Documents related to high school course selection are available here. These have been given out to students, but if forms are lost, they can be reprinted at home or at school. High school course requests should be submitted by Friday, May 25th (next Friday).
Have a great next week,
