Parent Teacher Student Conferences are November 7-9: We look forward to meeting with parents and students during this time. Because teachers have 100+ students, we request you only schedule conferences with classroom teachers where your child is struggling academically. Students are asked to attend the conference.

How to sign up: You can sign up online only. Please do not contact the front office. They do not have access to teacher schedules. Note: Same day scheduling is not available. You will not be able to sign up for a conference that will occur within a 12 hour window.

The online sign up link is below and will go live on Wednesday, Oct. 31st at noon. You will receive an additional email on Wednesday morning, and the link will also be posted on our website and on each teacher’s PowerSchool page.

Grading Period 2: Please remember to periodically check your child’s grades on PowerSchool.

My Learning Plan (MLP): Last week, students began their MLP and documented their interests, goals, learning style, assessment data, goals and more. Throughout the year, students will add to their MLP, track their learning, and take time to reflect on their growth and goals. I encourage you to take an invested role in supporting your child in this process, so please ask him/her to share it with you! View the MLP HERE

Lost and Found: This week, lost and found items will be set out in the quad for students to claim at break and lunch. All unclaimed items will be bagged up and donated after lunch on Friday.

The Sunshine Celebration Dance is November 9th! ASB is excited to host the first dance of the year from 5:30 –7:00 p.m.! We are looking for 4 more Parent Chaperones to help with this fun event! If you are interested, please email Kevin Ramirez at
