A Message from the Principal
We are off to a great start! Our students are settling in to their classrooms and schedules, our youngest students have completed their first day with flying colors and our school grounds look great, thanks to the efforts of those of you who came out to help on Community Care Day!
We hope you can join us at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 10th from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Here, you may see your student's classroom, meet the teachers, sign up for Parent/Teacher conferences and learn about the many programs we have here at Astor.
As you found in your Opening Day packet, we have many ways in which you can find out what is happening at Astor. In addition to Astor's webpage, you may follow us on Facebook, sign up for text messages, and join our email community list.
Also, beginning on September 10th, PPS is shifting family, student and staff communication to a new tool that gives schools the ability to send texts about emergencies, closures, delays and other important news. To receive text notifications, you must opt in to the service. You opt in by texting YES to 68453. Parents and students should confirm their cell numbers are listed in the student information system.
I want to thank our students, parents, and staff for a fantastic start to the 2015-16 school year and I hope to see you at Back to School Night.
