PTSO – The Spring Wing was a huge success.   The Eighties outfits were a hoot and the music and breakdancing were awesome.   The funds raised by this event will help fund all of the programs at Asbury. A BIG thank you to Kim Nyhus for chairing this event and  our hard working and VERY creative – PTSO members. Preliminary totals are around $37,000.00.

PARENT SATISFACTION SURVEYS –  Asbury Elementary values input from families – and we want to hear from you!   The Parent Satisfaction Survey helps us understand how well our school is supporting your students’ needs and is a part of our School Performance Framework (SPF). This week you will receive a flyer that guides you to the DPS Parent Satisfaction Survey, which will be online this year.  These surveys are anonymous and confidential. Please take the time to fill this out- your voice is important to us.

Principal Notes: Have a classroom/teacher request?Here is Asbury’s policy for teacher requests: Parents may not request a specific teacher assignment. You may want to share information that might help us make classroom assignments.  The information about a student should address educational needs (e.g., learning style, interests, areas of concern, strengths). Please email these requests to alicia_fajohn@dpsk12.org .
