Dear AST Families and Friends,

Thank you to all the parents that joined us for Back to School Night. The positive working relationship between parents, teachers, and students is critical to our students' success. When we work together, our students not only take flight but soar.

At Back to School Night, we shared the schoolwide MAPS data from this week and the impressive AP data from last May’s assessments. Individual data will come this week and it will be sent home by advisory/homeroom teachers. The note on the calendar about Parent Conferences (as needed) is to remind teachers to reach out regarding areas of concern or striking MAPS data. We will reach out to parents starting next week. Full conferences will happen later in November.

We have had a few complaints about student behavior on the buses. We take this seriously as we are unwilling to risk anyone’s safety. If students are reported three times they will receive a one-week suspension from the bus and further action will be taken if the problem persists. Please talk to your students about wearing their seatbelts and using a volume level that is appropriate for the bus.

The first tea time with the Directors for this year is Thursday, September 5 at 2:30 pm. We look forward to sitting down with you next week.

Have a great week,

Anthony Keen


Child Safety- ES Parent Pick up 

School Pickup

Safety is our top priority. A friendly reminder goes to all ES parents who come to pick your child after school, please park your car and walk to the playground to pick your child up between 3:30-3:45 p.m.  All ES students will wait at the guard’s house after 3:45 p.m. or attend after school programs.  

Bus Stop Pickup

If your child is taking the bus home, it is important to come to the bus stop to pick up your child. The nanny will not release the elementary students if there is no one at the receiving end. 

Bringing Lunch from Home? 

If you are bringing your lunch from home, you can store it in the refrigerator in the kitchen area of the LAC in the morning. Food safety is always a priority for us and some foods should be kept chilled throughout the morning to be as safe as possible. Talk to your child if they should be refrigerating their lunch at school.


ES After School Clubs 

Dear Parents, 

We are so happy to see students participate in the clubs and enroll for this semester. We have made some change for ESOL and offer VEX class for grade 3 and grade 5, please check here to see the clubs and the schedule we offer this semester. If your kids have decided to join the club but you have not signed up online yet, please sign up here.

Please let me know if you have any question, thank you very much.

親愛的AST家庭和朋友們,

        感謝家長們蒞臨本學年的Back to School Night (返校之夜)活動。我們相信:家長、老師和學生之間保持積極互動關係,對於孩子學習能否獲得成功絕對至關重要;大家一起努力合作的結果,一定會讓孩子們的成就如飛機起飛,不僅只是上升高度,還會加速衝向目標。

        在返校之夜時,我們分享了到本週為止全校MAPS測驗結果數據,以及 5月份高中生在AP考試所得到令人印象深刻的數據。 這次學生個人的測驗結果將會在本週由各班/輔導小組導師分送給同學們帶回家。 另外,在學校行事曆上所登載的:9/ 2-6, Parent Conferences (as needed),則是我們要提醒各科老師,須就同學在MAPS測業後所得的數據,自行依個別同學的需要,與家長聯繫如何幫助同學。這項個別聯繫工作,我們預計將於下週開始進行。至於學校整體的測驗結果報告會,則預計將在11月舉行。

        最近我們收到了一些關於同學在校車上行為不當的抱怨。學校必須很認真的處理這些問題,因為我們不願以任何人的安全來冒風險。如果學生被提報了三次在校車上有不當行為,我們就會處罰他暫停搭乘校車一星期,如果處罰後仍繼續再犯,學校將會採取進一步的行動。 也請家長與您的孩子認真討論在校車上如何繫好安全帶,並使用合適的音量與他人交談。

        本學期第一次家長與校長茶會時間即將在下星期四,9/5下午2:30舉行,我們非常期待當天與您相見!

祝大家週末愉快!

校長  金安東  


學童安全- 接小學生放學 

到校接

讓我們一起遵守:安全第一。友善提醒小學生家長:若您於放學時要接孩子回家,請停好車後在3:30-3:45到小學部playground (遊戲場) 接您的孩子。學校規定小學生平常在下午3:45後,不是在警衛室等家長接回,就是去參加課後社團。

在校車停靠站接

如果您孩子是搭乘放學校車回家,請務必在孩子下車的停靠站接回他們。學校規定小學生若無人在停靠站接他們,隨車人員將不讓孩子下車。 


自備午餐到校 

同學們如果自備午餐,可以在早上到校時就將食物冰在學校LAC(林肯活動中心)一樓廚房的學生專用冰箱裡。食品安全是我們須優先考量的,所以為了避免有些食物放一上午就變質,希望孩子們能將自己帶到學校的午餐在早上到校時就放到冰箱內保鮮。如果孩子有帶食物需要先冰起來再享用的,也請家長也提醒孩子們。


ES 課後社團

親愛的家長您好,

我們很高興看到學生們這學期踴躍參加小學部課後社團活動。英語加強社的日程有做變動,另外也新增了VEX課程給三年級和五年級的學生加入。請您詳見社團網頁了解社團日程及詳細資訊。若您的孩子決定參加社團卻還沒有線上報名,請您至報名網頁填寫報名表。

若您有任何社團相關問題需要詢問,歡迎您隨時與我聯絡。
