Preschool Carnival

Today Preschool celebrated the carnival at ASV. Children came to school dressed up with a varied set of dresses including superheroes, princesses, animals, and Star Wars characters, among others. From 10:00 to 11:00 they had a special time in their park, enjoying games and handicrafts workshops. At 15:00 all of the classes, from Nursery to Kinder, paraded around parks A and B, where Elementary students and teachers were looking and cheering them.
Thanks to our Parent Volunteers

Thank you to all of those Preschool parents who came on Wednesday and today to help our staff to prepare the Carnival activities. We hope they enjoyed with this colorful day.

Fallas Workshop: We are Ready to Set Up the Structure


The third and fourth grades have dedicated great time and effort throughout the week. These students applied background and spirit to give each of our pieces its own little personality. They've even started adding color! We're now awaiting the arrival of the Fallas structure. The structure will be 2.5 meters tall, with a 5.2 meter diameter. Next week, the sixth graders will add on some finishing touches to the separate elements and begin piecing the parts together. We are right on schedule to create the best Fallas yet! 


Reminder of the use of Google Sites


A reminder for parents to check the Google Site of their child’s homeroom teacher on a weekly basis for updates on assignments, activities, and topics of instruction. Please contact our IT department with access issues and the applicable classroom teacher for clarification on posted resources.
