Asbury Eagle Families-

At the end of April, we will be re-introducing our Dish a Story event. Families, students and staff have all expressed interest in bringing back a community based event that celebrates and shares recipes, stories and food! 

Asbury students will be completing a project that tells a story about a favorite family recipe.  The Dish A Story potluck is an opportunity for families to share that dish, their story and the company of other Asbury families.  Whether you are able to bring a dish or not, we hope that you will join us in celebrating our Asbury community and everything we all “bring to the table.” With your family, have a conversation and answer some questions. The answers to these questions will help guide the story that will be completed at school. We understand that not all families may be able to attend the Dish A Story potluck, but we ask that you take the opportunity to complete this assignment as a family. This assignment is due April 14, 2023. The Dish a story event will take place from 5:00-7:00 on April 27! 

Below are the assignment sheets to complete and turn into your teacher. Make a copy of the sheet below and email it. You can also print this out and turn it  into your teachers. 

Please reach out with any questions or concerns.

In Partnership,

Jeanna Doung

Spring Wing Auction EXPERIENCES: Amanda O’Neill and Shannon Durling are leading this effort. (We need 2 more people to help with this effort!)

This is an opportunity to get to know more parents, plan fun gatherings for our community and help organize the experience details for Spring Wing on May 5th. There’s no requirement to host an experience or to attend Spring Wing. Most work is done simply by email and phone calls at times that are convenient for you.

Spring Wing Auction Experiences are an Asbury tradition that help us succeed in our goal of community engagement and are an excellent source of fundraising. Hosted “Experiences” are social fundraising events hosted by an Asbury family or group of families who share in the cost of putting together the event. Asbury Experiences are available as part of the Spring Wing Auction. Spring Wing attendees have the opportunity to bid on an experience.  All proceeds from the Experiences go directly to Asbury.

Examples include: Pool party, picnics, movie night, ice cream social, pizza in the park, mom’s cocktail party, Dad’s BBQ, workout classes, adult casino night, family olympics, taco truck night, bikes/brew brewery tour, whiskey tastings, art classes and so much more.

4) How else can you help with Spring Wing? We are so glad you asked!

  • Donate a bottle of wine valued between $20-$100. There will be a “Wine Wall” at the event, where purchasers will pull a mystery bottle and take it home to enjoy! You can bring wine donations to the front office or contact Olivia Jolly (
  • Host an experience. Consider hosting a family, kid, or adult experience. The possibilities are endless and we are always looking for new ideas! In the past, families have teamed up to host Bikes & Brews, Adult Field Day, pool parties, wine tastings, taco nights and more!  Have an event idea? We can’t wait to hear about it!  Contact Amanda O’Neill ( to discuss this fun opportunity.
  • Donate frequent flier airline miles! – contact Olivia Jolly (
  • Own a mountain or vacation home?– Would you consider donating a weekend or longer for an Asbury family to bid on and stay there?  Contact Olivia Jolly (
