Posted October 26, 2023
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous this week so far! It has been great to be outside with students during lunch and recess. The playground is full with students playing four-square, tetherball, playing on the swings and playing football on the field. In addition to all of this, we are also going to have our Community Circle this Friday, October 27 from 7:50-8:20. Parents are also invited to join us during this time! So, what is Community Circle? This is a time where we come together as a community of learners and focus on doing our BEST. We celebrate students and read out the BEST awards, play games and celebrate our learning across the building. We host these on Zoom, so you can join from anywhere! Below are the details for how to join!
In addition to this exciting news, I have two other items that are top of mind:
1-As we are patrons of the neighborhood, please never block driveways. Twice now in two weeks we have had someone block our neighbors driveways. I know parking can be really tough at morning drop off, so as a reminder, you can always use Kiss and Go or be a couple of minutes late, but please do not block driveways. They can call and have cars towed and we don’t want that!
2-Have you heard? We are looking for a highly-qualified long term sub for our 4th grade Math classroom. With Ms. Van Sant heading out on maternity leave soon, we are looking for someone who has the heart for working with an amazing group of 4th graders and is also willing to teach Bridges Math. If you are interested, please reach out directly to Jeanna_Doung@dpsk12.net.
Community Circle – tomorrow! See above for the link to join!

Marketing Team Meetings
We are excited to bring back the meeting of the marketing team for Asbury. The marketing team comes together to talk about the importance of getting students to come to Asbury and getting them to stay! We did some amazing work last year with updating our tour process and promoting Asbury in a variety of ways! If you are interested in joining, please let Jeanna know!

Attitude of Gratitude
How often do you tell your child “say thank you” or “be grateful”? Research shows that people who experience gratitude experience more positive emotions such as love as joy and fewer negative emotions such as resentment. Improved connectedness in relationships and better physical health are some other benefits.
