Dear AST Families and Friends,
Please congratulate our seniors on their college application success. We have not heard back from all universities or from all students, but acceptances so far include:
These schools are all well respected in the field that drew our students to them. We look forward to hearing about their continued success in their university years.
Testing Season -- Back on campus, the testing season is fully upon this. This week, the middle school students finished their MAPS assessment. Over the next two weeks, students in ninth grade, tenth grade, and elementary school will be taking their MAPS assessment and students in AP courses will be taken their AP course examinations.
Course Requests -- High school students should have submitted their course requests today and the work on next year’s master schedule begins in earnest on Monday. Course requests for rising middle school electives will be coming in a few weeks (applies to students in grades 5 through 7).
Awards Party -- It is time to reserve your spot at the Awards Party. This celebration will include Awards for Athletics, Acknowledgement of Club Recognition, and ASTs Academic Awards. We look forward to celebrating with everyone at the Tempus Hotel on May 24th.
Teacher Appreciation Week -- Next week, in the US, is Teacher Appreciation Week. It is a good time here near the end of the school year to remember and thank your teachers for the amazing work that they do for us day in and day out.
