Dear AST Friends and Family,
As we approach the end of September, we are looking forward to the busy month of October and we have a number of important and exciting events happening that hopefully are already on your calendar!
Looking forward to a great October,
Our Extended 10/10 - Mid Autumn Festival Break
We have two significant Taiwanese holidays and the teachers have two in-service days and these all together result in a nice week off for students from October 4th through October 10th.
HSINMUN is the first big MUN event of the year from October 13th through October 15th. MUN is a great opportunity for our students to meet other people, challenge their own beliefs about society, debate issues that matter to the world, and ...it is a great activity for college applications.
High School Field Day
Based upon the typhoon scare, the high school field day was rescheduled to October 20. All high school students will be off campus together engaging in an element of Taiwanese culture while cultivating relationships with each other that translate to improved classroom experiences.
Student-Led Conferences (formerly Parent-Teacher Conferences)
Student-led conferences will be held on Monday, October 23rd from 12:00 (noon) to 5:00 pm (17:00).
We will celebrate the holiday of Halloween during the week of October 23 through October 27. During this spirit week, there will be a daily dress-up theme and on Friday, we have Halloween Activities in the afternoon. To get involved, contact your child's homeroom or advisory teacher or the Parent Association. It is a great event for everyone involved.
