Please use this link to the Thursday Folders to see any and all flyers that came out this week. 10/3/19.  

Principal notes:   Parent Teacher Conferences are critical in keeping the lines of communication open between teachers and parents.   October 14-17 are the dates for Parent Teacher conferences and teachers will be sending out sign ups for you to select the best time for you.   Please make this a priority in your schedule. We hope to have 100% participation.

Culture and Equity Team – Asbury is looking for a few parents to join our Culture and Equity team. This team works to ensure diverse curriculum, celebrations and opportunities for the students and families at our school. If you are interested, please email Mrs. FaJohn at Alicia_fajohn@dpsk12.org. Here is a list of meeting dates and times: 10/21, 12/16, 3/16, 5/18. All meetings run from 7:30 – 8:15 am.
