A Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

It's hard to believe we only have a few short weeks left of the school year. We've been busy with many events, including the Run for the Playground. I want to thank all of our students for participating in this event, securing pledges and running those long laps around the playground. One student ran 21 laps; way to go!!

This week, we will be conducting an important drill as part of our emergency plan. We'll be practicing an earthquake drill, followed by an evacuation drill to our offsite location, the University of Portland. We thank the university for allowing us to use them as our "go to" location in the event that we cannot stay at Astor.

Our Talent Show is this week as well and I'm looking forward to seeing all the awesome talent that we have at Astor. Kudos go to the Student Leadership group for organizing this event.

We hope you are joining us on Saturday, May 16th, for the Astor PTSO Auction. This will start at 5:30 p.m. at the Bauccio Commons on the University of Portland campus. Laura Barnard, Auction Chair, has been hard at work organizing this event and securing donations. We've seen many interesting items come through as well as some beautiful class projects that you will be able to bid on. We look forward to seeing you there!
