Astro January Update
Dream big. Reach for the stars. Together we achieve success!
Happy New Year! We are reaching the midpoint of the school year. We have accomplished a lot so far and we are looking forward to the second half of the year.
We have a change to our calendar. We do not have school on January 14th. This is a day set aside for developing student supports.
In December, we had our second full school activity day. We had a Day of Art! Students had the opportunity to try different forms of artwork. We have partnered with a community organization, Golden Road Arts. They came and did fish prints and a drawing lesson. We are looking forward to having them come again for more art experiences.
We received a donation of books from the Consular Office of Japan in Portland
