A Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

This month, we'll have two events of interest to both students and incoming families.

Career Day takes place on the morning of February 11th. Astor will host parents and community members to share information and insights about the careers they have chosen and the steps to they took to achieve their positions. Students choose the speakers they would like to see and get more in-depth information about these careers. In the past, we have had some very interesting speakers and I'm sure this year will be no exception.

On Thursday, February 19th, we invite neighborhood families with incoming Kindergartners to our Connect to Kindergarten event. Here, you'll learn about our Kindergarten program, meet the teachers and Principals and learn more about Astor School. We will also have information about registering your child, including forms and the documents you will need. We look forward to hosting and meeting all of you.

This time of year we see colds and flu going through our building. Please click on the following link which advises you when to keep your child home from school. We appreciate your consideration and we look forward to warm days and the abatement of illnesses.
