A Message from the Principal
I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our Astor PTSO (Parent/Teacher/Student Organization) for all the assistance they provide to our school community. Recently, the PTSO had their first general meeting and I was happy to see so many of you in attendance. Not only does the PTSO coordinate many of the family events that happen at Astor, they assist classrooms by providing funds for items that teachers need and, of course, their big project is renovating the playground. To that end, our Run for the Playground event is happening tomorrow, Thursday, October 8th, (weather permitting) and I hope you can come and cheer on our students as they raise funds for the playground.
This is a busy month of events! Our Parent/Teacher conferences are on October 21st & 22nd. If you haven't scheduled your conference time, please contact the office to do so. The University of Portland is inviting Astor families to come to a soccer game on Saturday, October 24th. Tickets for students are free of charge and parents only pay $5 to see the Pilots play Denver. We'll hold our annual Grandparents and Special Friends Day on October 29th, which includes the ever-popular Halloween Parade. We hope you can join us for one, or all, of these events!
