Asbury Eagle Families-
We have been so lucky lately with all the visitors and supports we have had in the building (see what I did there, with St. Patty’s day and all)! We are lucky to have our room support parents, guest speakers to come in and a supportive community. Last week we celebrated the Direct Give campaign and all of your support to Asbury- we celebrated with the South High School Drumline coming before school! We had donuts, a student created konga line dancing to the drumline, and smiles all around despite the cold weather! If you want to check out a little bit of the action, click on these videos:

- We wanted to share out a really cool new addition to Asbury. When the current second graders were first graders last year they worked on a PBL that created a Sensory Path. This is open to any students who wish to take a brain break. It is located in the kindergarten hallway.
- Please watch our ribbon cutting celebration video.
- The students also made two instructional videos to show how the path can be used.
- Thank you for all of your hard work, second graders. Enjoy the Sensory Path!
