A Note From Mrs. Waters

Happy New Year! This week has been a great start to this new year.


Please read the information below from the office about New Entry to Campus Procedures which will start on Sunday, January 17.


We will begin a new math unit, Place Value: Compare, Add and Subtract to 40, next week. Attached you will find the unit parent letter. Carol Little, the elementary math coordinator, will be doing a workshop for parents on this unit on Sunday, January 17 at 8:10 in the Upper Elementary Presentation Room. An email was sent to you from me earlier this afternoon please sign up if you can to attend.


If you have anything for the 1B silent auction gift basket for the Friendship Festival, please send it in with a note. Joan, Marcus' mom, is organizing it for our class. She would like you to donate tea, coffee, chocolate, biscuits or something else for the tea basket.

New Entry to Campus Procedures


Starting January 17th, 2016 there will be some changes for students and parents entering the ASD Campus​ supporting student safety.​


​All students will be required to scan their Dragon Wristband entering and exiting the campus. It is recommended that you remind your child to wear their wristband daily. Replacement Dragon bands may be purchased at the front desk of the Administrative entrance for 50 qr. Wristbands will be distributed to Lower Elementary Students next week by their teachers. Your childs dragon band will be labeled with their name by a key tag. We kindly ask parents to keep this label on the wrist band for easy identification.


Parents and domestic staff will not be permitted through Gate 5 for morning drop off.​ ​Student​s​ may enter through Gate 5 using their wristbands and teachers will be there to supervise starting at 7:40 AM. Parents wishing to accompany their children to classes are asked to enter through Gates 8 & 10. ​


Pick-up procedures will remain the same, parents will be able to enter and exit the campus through Gate 5 from 2:45 - 4:15 PM. Pick up procedures for PACT Tuesdays and our Pre-K Students will also remain the same, parents will be able to enter through Gate 5 at 12:15 PM.


We kindly ask parents and guests to enter through Gate 8 during the school day.


We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we work to keep our school safe and continue the improvements to the ASD campus.
