A Message from the Principal
Career Awareness Day, one of our popular annual events, is coming on February 24th. We have many speakers come in to talk with our students about the careers they have chosen and give our kids insight about they reached their career goals. This year, our keynote speaker is a former CIA operative. We are also looking forward to hearing from a pediatric nurse,a news reporter and cameraman, a lawyer and a police officer, just to name a few. I'd like to thank the many speakers who volunteer their time to visit Astor.
We are partnering with OMSI again this year to offer a Family Science Night at their wonderful facility. This is a free event for our families and will be on Monday, February 29th from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. We hope to see you there.
Finally, I'd like to thank our families for their patience and their support as we weathered the many illnesses that have gone through our building. We are happy to report that students and staff are returning to school and we hope you and your families remain in good health.
