Principal Message:

Eagle Families!

Welcome Back (or Welcome for the first time)!! Welcome to a new year of Thursday Folders! This communication comes out weekly from me and contains all your school level communication, including dates, flyers, important updates, and resources. As we gear up for this year, I want to reiterate that I believe in a partnership and with that partnership means that my office door is always open. I believe in my support and service to the Asbury community and look forward to continuing our partnership this year. 

This year, I am committed to fostering that sense of belonging that I hear our entire community of teachers, students and parents so fondly referring Asbury to having! To kick that off, I spent time in each classroom this week reading Kindness Grows! I can’t wait to continue fostering kindness and belonging in my work this year! Below, you will find principal notes that contain important dates and reminders. Below that you will find important information, including a section from PTSO.

In Collaboration,

Jeanna Doung
