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,

Anthony Keen

親愛的AST家庭和朋友們,


歡迎大家來到2019-2020學年! 本學年開學日是8月6日星期二,開學日一早,請全校同學先到體育館集合。本學年的課表時間有些微的更動,開學日當天老師會再跟同學們說明清楚。

本學年學校開始和新的校車公司合作,為近兩年來大家一直懸念著的校車問題跨出一大步。我們期望與這家公司保持良好合作關係,為同學們提供更好的服務。關於校車還有一點小調整,就是原星期四提供的車上早餐於本學期開始將停止供應。我們請家長們配合,讓孩子們在夜間有良好的睡眠,早晨吃過營養的早餐後上學,這對於孩子們的學習將有最好的幫助。

2019-2020學年度行事曆請點閱學校網頁,請大家注意八月份的重要活動摘要如下:

  • 8月23日因教師在校進修,學生將提早放學 
  • 8月23日晚上在洲際棒球場有Family Fun Night (家庭日) 活動
  • 8月30日傍晚有Back to School Night (返校夜) 活動

本學期MAPS測驗,高中部將於8月20日開始,初中和小學部將於8月27日開始,更多相關訊息將於近期公布。

提醒同學們開學後,午餐需自備個人使用餐具。讓我們年年持續為減低AST的垃圾量、活得更環保而努力。

最後,我們要與大家分享Dr. Uerkvitz先董事辭世的消息。Dr. Uerkvitz先生曾任AST的音樂老師且一直擔任AST董事逾20年,在7月22日星期一離開了我們,他的追思會已於8月3日在東海路思義教堂舉行。Dr. Uerkvitz 於1990年時為AST成立了特有的Hand Bell Choir (手鐘樂團)至今。對於這位優秀音樂教育家的離去,我們深感哀悼。

祝大家開學愉快!

校長  金安東
