Principal Message:

Asbury Community,

We had another amazing week here at Asbury!  Students are working hard, building classroom communities, and learning rituals and routines that will continue to help them be successful throughout the year!  I am loving being a part of this incredible team and this community and can’t wait to see what next week brings!  Just a reminder, there is no school on Monday for the celebration of Labor Day so we will see you back in action on Tuesday, September 5th.  Enjoy your long weekend with your family and friends.

     Please see below for some important CMAS information for 4th and 5th grade families as well as some exciting news and another reason to celebrate for Asbury!

School Performance Framework- SPF

What is this? The performance framework evaluates district and school performance on Academic Achievement, Academic Growth, and Post-secondary & Workforce Readiness indicators.

We would like to celebrate our amazing staff at Asbury for earning the highest rating you can get with a GREEN which MEETS expectation for those growth areas! Way to go team! 

CMAS Information for 4th and 5th Grade Families:

Hard copy scores for our current 4th and 5th graders of their CMAS scores will be sent home soon.  Please reach out if you have any questions.  In the meantime, you can view the scores through the DPS Parent Portal.  Here is the click path to do that.

A Message from Mrs. Ravel, Technology Teacher:

This week I had the opportunity to go into the classrooms of the 2nd-5th grade students to talk about technology responsibility.  We are lucky to have 1:1 chromebooks for all students at Asbury, but it is our responsibility to take care of these devices.  The students filled out a technology responsibility contract.  We are asking that parents do the same to support their students and their devices.  Please read through this again with your student and fill it out for EACH of the 2nd-5th grade students that you have at Asbury.  We will do this for Kindergarten and first grade a little bit later after they get started with their chromebooks.

Click HERE to fill out the Parent version of the Technology Responsibility Contract.  Thanks so much.
