Principal Message:

Happy Thursday! As we approach the completion of our third week of school, I am delighted to reflect upon the wonderful memories we are creating here at Asbury. We are pleased the weather this week has been considerably more favorable than the previous weeks and our students were able to focus on our first iStation assessment for the month of September. This first assessment is  used as an initial baseline at the beginning of the year for 1st through 5th grades.  Kindergarten will do their first iStation assessment at the beginning of October. Students will then take the assessment again at the start of every month throughout the year,  to determine your student’s skill level on research-based components of reading – phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. The results are used to help shape teacher plans and guide instruction for each student’s success throughout the academic school year. If you have any questions regarding your student’s iStation scores and goals,  feel free to contact their teacher. 

In Partnership, 

Ana Mendoza (Interim Principal)
