Asbury Eagle Families-
Help Celebrate Social-Emotional Learning Week: This week’s focus is all about teaching children to love themselves and Celebrate differences! Social emotional learning offers a way for young people to celebrate their own unique identities and develop respect for others. These skills help prepare students to navigate the multicultural, multiracial world around them. So how can we have meaningful conversations with our children about cultural and racial identity? A new, interactive guide is one practical tool to help parents and caregivers spark age-appropriate conversations about identity, race, and racism. The guide can also help us prepare every child to successfully identify racism when it’s happening and do something about it.
DIRECT GIVE UPDATE:
We are so grateful for YOU – thank you for making Direct Give a huge SUCCESS! As a community we raised $85,309! And…some donations are still coming in! Wow, we could not be more amazed by you and more proud to be Eagles!
Just because DG is over, doesn’t mean you can’t donate! Visit Asbury’s Donation Page for all the info!
Next PTSO Meeting: Tuesday, March 7th; This meeting will be in-person and we plan to gather for an informal Direct Give after party (stay tuned for details!)
YEARBOOK SUPPORT! Listy Lehman is leading this effort. Listy has it under control but could use another set of eyes to help her (and Ms. Baca) to finalize the photos, names and to get marketing out to the masses! (please contact: email@example.com)
2) 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.
Spring Wing Auction Committee – Amy Fitzgerald and Olivia Jolly are leading this effort. We could use 3-5 more people to help call on local businesses to donate items for our Spring Wing on May 5th. There is already a list generated, a letter created and a script for you. It’s a fun way to meet businesses in the area!
