Dear AST Families and Friends,

Classes have begun, clubs and activities are underway, and the rain has cleaned the air. It has been a busy, wet, and productive second week of school. Next week, we look forward to connecting with our parents at the Brother’s Baseball Family Fun Night on Friday, August 23rd. The following Friday, we will host our Back to School Night from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm. These are both great opportunities to meet our teachers and build the relationships needed to best support our kids.

Have a great week,

Anthony Keen

MS AVID Binder System

This year, the middle school program at AST is excited to be implementing the AVID binder system into our students' everyday academic life. AVID is an exceptional American program that stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. This program helps to prepare students for college and career readiness. The binder is an essential component of the AVID program. It helps to prepare students for the college track. This journey begins with organization. These binders will be holding key information for the students from their teachers, in each of their classes,   will help them foster organizational success and essential study habits. Preparing the student to be well rounded in all areas is key at AST and by implementing the AVID binder system, we are excited to watch kids grow as the head down the path towards college and career readiness.

The students should bring their binders to every class. That way they are filling their papers as they go about their day. 

Secondly, they are more than welcome to bring another binder. This tool is there to help them, and if another binder, or different binder, is more useful to them, then I do not see a problem with them getting a second one.

親愛的AST家庭和朋友們,

開學第二週,學校各學科上課已進入正軌,學生社團和課外體育隊伍也開始進行活動,連續大雨為我們洗去髒污的空氣,這星期雖然忙碌、潮濕,卻非常充實有效率。下星期學校與學生家庭間的大事就是將於8月23日星期五晚上在台中洲際棒球場舉行的AST Family Fun Night (家庭日) 活動,我們期待大家踴躍參加。另外,再接下去的8月30日星期五傍晚3:30到6:00,則將請家長們到學校來進行本學年度的Back to School Night (返校夜)活動,與家庭日活動一樣,這兩個活動都是家長與老師建立良好關係一起支持孩子們學習、成長的最好機會。

祝大家週末愉快!

校長  金安東

MS AVID 活頁夾系統

很高興本學年開始,AST初中部能夠將AVID資料夾系統應用到學生的日常學習生活中。 AVID(Advancement Via Individual Determination)是一項特殊的美式計劃,代表通過個人決心達到成就;該計劃有助於學生為將來大學和職業生活做好準備。計畫中,"活頁夾"是AVID程序的重要組成部分。它對於學生為就讀大學課程做好準備很有幫助。學生們進行本計畫的流程就從"組織"開始。利用個人活頁夾將可為每個班級的老師提供學人的關鍵信息,幫助學生培養成功組織資料和基本學習應有的習慣。AST希望教導學生在所有領域能做好準備,通過實施AVID活頁夾系統,我們很高興將看到孩子們在為大學和職業生涯準備的道路上有所成長。

學生們應該把個人的活頁夾帶到每個班級。這樣可以幫助他們在日常上課中隨時存入資料。其次,如果另一個活頁夾或不同的活頁夾對他們更有用,我們也很歡迎學生們自備其他的活頁夾。活頁夾就是工具,只要可以幫助學生達到使用本系統的目的,學生們另外準備活頁夾不會有問題。
