Dear AST Family and Friends,
I am amazed that we are already at the end of the first semester. This part of the school year seems to fly by so quickly. Today was the Elementary School End of Semester Celebration - it is always a wonderful time with our youngest - and this year was no exception.
This week, we also hosted our third Tea Time with the Directors. Our guests this week were the high school parents. They offered great ideas about increasing the quantity and quality of our college advising. They urged us to really start focusing on college with our ninth grade students. They also shared a handful of other ideas that we hope to implement over the coming year. We really appreciate and value our parents and their thinking. And, we look forward to Tea Times next semester.
Finally, Mr. Conn has struggled with his health in his short time at AST. He held out as long as he was able but he has now resigned from our faculty. We wish him the best as he moves on to the next stage of his life. Mr. Conn will be replaced by Mr. Valentino Salvato in January. We will share more information about him once he arrives. Thank you for your patience as we transition to a new teacher in middle school mathematics.
Have a great last week of the semester,
