CMAS Testing continues for 3rd – 5th grade.  Please make sure your students are well rested and on time for testing.  We have a celebration planned for May 6 to Skate City for all 3rd-5th grades.  Parents must fill out a permission slip,  which went home last week, and return it with the appropriate funds and lunch selection.

Principal Notes:  We hope you will join us for our annual family potluck- Dish-A-Story. This event is such an amazing way to share stories and food with your community! Please see the attached flyer for all the details and RSVP!

Interested in being more involved in the operational side of Asbury? The CSC (collaborative school committee) will be looking for 3 or more parents to join us for the 19/20 school year. The CSC provides guidance and insight to school wide decisions regarding budget, personnel, and our Unified Improvement Plan. Please email alicia_fajohn@dpsk12.org if you are interested!

Have a classroom/teacher request?Here is Asbury’s policy for teacher requests: Parents may not request a specific teacher assignment. You may want to share information that might help us make classroom assignments.  The information about a student should address educational needs (e.g., learning style, interests, areas of concern, strengths). Please email these requests to alicia_fajohn@dpsk12.org .
