A Message From Your Principal
Dear ASK Families,
We are so thrilled to be welcoming all of our students back for the 2021-2022 school year and are hopeful that every student will receive in-person instruction for the entire year.
Our focus this year will be to identify instructional gaps caused by the pandemic and address these gaps with targeted interventions. As one of our main goals each year is to improve overall academic achievement, specifically, we will hone in on our reading instruction. We will continue to use the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project as our primary resource while also looking into several phonics programs to help our younger, aspiring readers.
School attendance will also be a major focus for us. It is vital that every student demonstrates excellent attendance every year, but this year it will be especially important for students to be in the building as much as possible. Our entire staff will be dedicated to the social and emotional well-being of each and every student, so please encourage your children to attend school every day.
Our after/before school and extracurricular activities took a pause last year. As we are huge proponents of educating the Whole Child, we will look to bring back programs such as After-school AIS, STREAM Enrichment, Zero Hour PE, Mad Science, etc., provided it is safe to do so.
Again, we look forward to another great year at ASK and we hope you are too!! As always, please update us with any changes to your contact information.
ASK...Doing Things the Right Way!
