Dear AST Families and Friends,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. School starts on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. We will begin with all of our students in the gymnasium together and will follow the regular school day schedule with a few small adjustments during the day. These adjustments to that schedule will be shared by the teachers throughout the day.
This year begins with a new bus company. With the concerns that we have all shared over the past two years, it was time to begin a new relationship. We look forward to working with this company. One casualty of the switch is that we are no longer able to serve breakfast on Thursday mornings. Please make sure our students get a good night sleep and a healthy breakfast each day before coming to school.
Our Year-At-A-Glance calendar is available on our schedules and calendar site. A couple things to point out for the month of August include:
- Early Dismissal on August 23rd for Teacher In-Service
- Family Fun Night - Brother’s Baseball on August 23rd
- Back to School Night on August 30th
MAPS testing for High School will begin on August 20th and for Middle and Elementary School will begin on August 27th. More information will follow shortly.
Remember to bring your utensils for lunchtime. We continue to try to reduce waste at AST and make ourselves more and more green each year.
Finally, we must share that Dr. Uerkvitz, a founding teacher at AST who served for over 20 years as a teacher and a board member passed away on Monday, July 22nd. He founded the AST Hand Bell Choir in 1990 and we mourn the loss of this outstanding educator. His funeral will be held on Saturday, August 3rd, at 2:30 pm at the Luce Memorial Chapel on the campus of Tunghai University.
Have a great first week of school,
