Dear AST Families and Friends,
This time of year is very special at AST. With Spirit Week culminating in our Halloween events on November 1, our community comes together to celebrate both this American holiday, but also our unique take on that holiday. Halloween at AST is steeped in school spirit, creating for others, and celebrating that creativity.
I would like to thank everyone for their work on making this all happen. The Parent Association has taken on a larger role this year in creating special experiences for our elementary students. Our seniors are working diligently on their Haunted House. Our advisory groups are building activities and displays to share. Our librarian has created special classes sharing the story of Halloween with our elementary students.
On November 1st, parents and toddler siblings are welcome (and encouraged) to join us for the festivities. The schedule for November 1st and the dress-up schedule for the entire spirit week are included below.
Finally, to our disappointment (because we love this week at AST so much!), Ms. Tung and Mr. Keen will be away for much of the week at the EARCOS Leadership Conference. Year-after-year, we have taken away great information to help AST become a better school. We have high expectations and hopes for this professional learning event.
Have a great week,
Not only are these events amazing opportunities for the participants, but they are a great chance for community service hours. Please see Mr. Herding to volunteer.
Additionally, we have a VEX scrimmage set for Sunday, November 3. Let us know if you can get involved and help out with any of these events!
