Principal’s Corner

Eagle Families, 

Thank you to all of the families who reached out to say thank you and send their love in support of my decision to transition out of Asbury in January. Decisions like these are never made easily and I appreciate your support! I have had an amazing 6 years at Asbury and I know that I am leaving Asbury with a strong vision and community that will carry on long after I go. I am excited for Ms. Doung to get to know you all, and your students, even more. Please join her on Tuesday, 10/13 at 8:30 – 9:15 or Thursday night, 10/15 from 5:00 -5:45 for “Tea with Mrs. Doung.”    She welcomes all of you to a zoom to get to know a little more about who she is and her leadership path. Here is the Zoom link.
