A Message from the Principal
I want to thank you for a great school year and let you know that we are busy planning for the 2015-16 school year. While we were sorry to say goodbye to Mr. Robertson, Mrs. Tomblin, Mrs. Parker, Mrs. Craig, Ms. De Paz-Menjivar and Mr. Fradkin, we're happy to welcome Mr. Gordon to the 5th grade classroom and are finalizing new hires for other positions.
As you see above, the Superhero Summer Reading Challenge is underway and we are competing with other neighborhood schools to win a pizza and burrito party for the whole school. Make sure you turn your game boards in to get stamped as you complete your reading.
If you have a student to register, you may do so at the Enrollment and Transfer Center at the PPS District office. Their address is 501 N. Dixon (the big pink building near the Memorial Coliseum). We will re-open the office on August 13th and you may also register your student here at Astor.
We hope you have a restful summer, enjoy time with your families, and we look forward to seeing you in August.Regards,
