I feel so fortunate to have worked with your students and this staff for these past two weeks. Our older students have been focused on Interim tests and engaged learning and our younger friends have had many fun learning experiences this week as well. Ms Mendoza is back on Monday; I thank you for this opportunity.

Asbury’s Fall Conference evenings will be October 18th and October 19th unless you hear otherwise from your grade level teachers. Teachers will be sharing out sign-up geniuses to choose a slot for your conference for your student over the next week. Other dates may be offered in addition to the 18th and the 19th depending on the grade level. Watch the upcoming Deets from your teachers for more information.
There will NOT be school on Monday, October 16th for students. Enjoy your long weekend from October 12-16.
Pokemon Cards at Asbury
Please have your students keep their Pokemon cards at home. They are not allowed at Asbury during the day or during Discovery Link. Students should not have them in their lunchbox or in their pockets during lunch or recess. There is a Pokemon Enrichment class on Wednesdays after school. If your student is in that enrichment, they should turn their cards into Ms. Baca at the start of the day and pick them up after school for class. Families, thanks so much for helping with this!
