A Message from the Principal
We are soon to begin the 2014-15 school year and I am looking forward to welcoming our new families and reconnecting with our returning students. We are excited to offer some new programs and teachers look forward to sharing that with you.
We are hosting our 8th graders at the 8th Grade Roundup on Tuesday, August 19th to welcome them back and provide some information about leadership opportunities at Astor as the "senior" students on campus. On Saturday, August 23rd our Community Care Day gives members of our staff and families a chance to connect and beautify our school. We welcome your participation. New families will have a chance to meet each other at our New Families Ice Cream Social on Thursday, August 28th. This event is hosted by our fantastic PTSO (Parent Teacher Student Organization) and we hope you would like to join this group.
