Eagle Families-

Welcome back, I hope you had a restful fall break! We are excited to have such beautiful weather as we come back to school (I just can’t believe it is December and it is feeling like early fall)! There are two things that I wanted to share with you:

  1. ​​Community circle: We will be hosting a community circle event on Friday, 12/10. This will be from 7:50-8:20 for the entire school!  It will be a virtual event and any and all are welcome to attend. We will come together, share BEST awards, celebrate all our hard work this year so far and have some fun! So get ready and let me know if you have any questions! See below for the link to join:

  1. Rescheduling the Canceled Release Day Poll : 64% of folks indicated that they would prefer our rescheduled release day on 1/14. We will communicate with families and you can plan for 1/14 to be an Asbury release day for paras and teachers. We will still host the release day on 1/3  as well.
