Principal's Message

August 16, 2018

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before! Let’s embark on this journey with a pledge to our students and families, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and a plethora of extracurricular clubs and activities, and athletic teams certain to encourage our Ravens to be involved and stay connected!  Although our school's start and end times have shifted some, we start at 7:30a and end at 2:30p, we are looking forward to seeing all of our students on the first day of school on Wednesday, August 29th. 

Just a few thoughts about what each of you can do to help your students have a successful year. We love to have parents involved and appreciate your support. Please let the classroom teachers, the office, or our Family Engagement Specialist know if you have a few minutes to spare!  There is always some way to get involved.  

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is key to the success of your child.

Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at ASI. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings. Again, we welcome you to ASI and to our wonderful learning community . . . a place alive with much energy . . . enthusiasm . . . and a high standard of excellence! It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound! Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!

I will see you soon,

Robert McCain
