School Notes   

  • Thank you for your continued support around Asbury’s non-student contact days. Attached is the calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. There will be 4 release days built in to support project-based learning, planning and data analysis. These days provide the opportunity for all staff to review student data, including social-emotional and behavioral needs, and plan for engaging, rigorous project-based learning lessons that support ALL students. With the support of these days, Asbury has seen a significant increase in student achievement and student engagement. Please review the calendar closely, as it is different from the district calendar. As always, let us know what questions you have.
  • On inside mornings (including late starts), please bring your students directly into the auditorium through Door #9 in the courtyard, not the office.  Parents are welcome to stay with students in the auditorium until the bell rings if they want to, but may not enter the hallway without signing at the office and getting a visitor’s badge.
  • Please come in and check the LOST AND FOUND All will again be donated BEFORE President’s Day weekend.
  • Important Reminder: In order to promote independence, please drop your student off in the office if they are late. If you decide to accompany them- ALL visitors, parents, etc. MUST sign in at the office.
  • Kids Heart Challenge was a huge success.  Thank you to all the friends and families who supported our jump ropers.    You raised approximately $5,000 to benefit The American Heart Association and Asbury Elementary School.  The celebration “SLIME” assembly will be on February 18th.
  • It is planning time for the next school year and the office needs to know if your child is not going to attend Asbury next year for whatever reason.   Please let either the teacher or the office know.
  • Our own, Mrs. B is in the running to be Denver’s Next Improv Star at the Bovine Metropolis Theatre!  
    • The first show is this Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7:30.  You can buy tickets here.  She will be continuing for several Saturdays after that!  
    • Here is the link to watch her introduction video.
