Dear AST Family and Friends,
Looking forward to next week, it is both Thanksgiving week and THIMUN Singapore week. We celebrate Thanksgiving together as an AST family on Wednesday and then have no school on Thursday and Friday in honor of the holiday. THIMUN Singapore students leave on Monday for their week of Model United Nations in Singapore and they return the following weekend.
Have a great week,
Next Wednesday we will have our annual Thanksgiving activities. Festivities start at 11:15 in the gymnasium with an all school assembly including themed performances. This will be followed by an all school lunch generously provided by the Parent Association. The afternoon is time together doing various activities with a very loose schedule. All parents are encouraged to attend and join in this AST family time.
Parents may take students home with them if they depart before 3:35 pm. ES parents will need to sign out with Ms. Amber Jin in the cafeteria before taking students home. After lunch parents can sign out in the 1st grade classroom until 2:30pm. After 2:30pm, parents need to sign out in the ES library.
We can greatly reduce our waste if everyone brings a reusable plate/bowl and utensils. Let's help the environment.
We look forward to spending this time together.
We are currently preparing the reports to send home about MAP results. We hope to get it to you soon, but I am confident that we will have it out by the week after Thanksgiving. We intend to send it home with the students, but we will let you know when it is coming so that you know to look for it.
Tea Time with the Directors
We wanted to remind you about joining us for Tea Time with the Directors. This is an opportunity for parents to come in and share their ideas, ask questions, and engage with the directors. We value and are seeking your input.
Some of this discussion has been taking place in the Parent Association (PA) meeting and moving this to its own time will allow the PA meeting to focus more on their projects during that time.
We hoping to see many of you at this meetings.
