School Notes   

  • Thank you for your continued support around Asbury’s non-student contact days. Attached is the Asbury Calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. There will be 4 release days built in to support project-based learning, planning and data analysis. These days provide the opportunity for all staff to review student data, including social-emotional and behavioral needs, and plan for engaging, rigorous project-based learning lessons that support ALL students. With the support of these days, Asbury has seen a significant increase in student achievement and student engagement. Please review the calendar closely, as it is different from the district calendar. As always, let us know what questions you have.
  • On inside mornings (including late starts), please bring your students directly into the auditorium through Door #9 in the courtyard, not the office.  Parents are welcome to stay with students in the auditorium until the bell rings if they want to, but may not enter the hallway without signing at the office and getting a visitor’s badge.
  • Please come in and check the lost and found.  All will again be donated BEFORE President’s Day weekend.
  • Canned Food Drive – Students bring your donations to your classroom so they can be counted. It runs through February 13.  All donations benefit the Asbury Backpack Program.
  • Over the Holiday break, DPS’s Technology Department upgraded Asbury’s security system and installed a new doorbell/camera at the courtyard office door. However, it has now been moved to the “Front” door on Asbury Ave. (Where the buses pick up).  This is where parents will ring to pick up students from Discovery Link.    
  • Important Reminder: In order to promote independence, please drop your student off in the office if they are late. If you decide to accompany them- ALL visitors, parents, etc. MUST sign in at the office.
  • Make sure you have registered for the Kids Heart Challenge.  Here is the link to sign up! We don’t want you to miss out!  Ask your friends and family to help you take the Kids Heart Challenge.  Watch your Deets, Facebook, and Instagram for more information.  The celebration “SLIME” assembly will be on February 18th.
  • It is planning time for the next school year and the office needs to know if your child is not going to attend Asbury next year for whatever reason.   Please let either the teacher or the office know.
