Thursday Folders

Welcome to Asbury’s Thursday Folders page! This is our main mode of communication from school to parent. Below each date, you will find the body of the School Deet that was sent to parents as well as any correlating fliers for the week. If you are looking for something specific and can’t find it here, drop by the office and we will be happy to help.
